Parisian Icon Reopens

The Hilton Paris Opera has officially reopened, unveiling a chic and contemporary new look following the extensive renovation of one of Paris’ most historic and glamorous grand hotels. Located in the heart of the Right Bank’s Opera district, a short distance from the Champs-Elysées and the French boutique shopping experiences at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann, the hotel was originally the vision of architect Juste Lisch. Having first opened in 1889 to welcome visitors of the Exposition Universelle, the hotel has undergone a US$50 million refurbishment that returns it to its former glory in exquisite style.

The historical centerpiece of the hotel is the majestic Le Grand Salon which, along with 268 guest rooms and suites, several bars and restaurants, plus meeting and event spaces, has been transformed under the close supervision of acclaimed design firm Richmond international.

“France has the largest inbound tourism market in Europe, estimated to reach 100 million by 2018, with Paris itself remaining one of the world’s great destinations,” says Simon Vincent, EVP and president Europe, Middle East & Asia at Hilton Worldwide. “Hilton has a long history in the city and we are delighted to be bringing one of its most illustrious hotels back to life, following a stylish renovation that will ensure Hilton Paris Opera becomes a home for Parisians and international guests alike.

Each part of Hilton Paris Opera has been carefully created in sophisticated style, paying homage to the hotel’s storied history while providing an updated aesthetic for today’s traveller. Highlights of the property include the elegantly appointed 900sqft Maria Callas Suite, the hotel’s master suite. Besides a spacious living room with the high ceilings typical of a Parisian Haussmann building, the suite features a master bedroom with one king bed and a second bedroom with twin beds, both with private bathrooms designed with a large polished stone vanity and spacious walk-in shower.

Hilton Paris Opera offers a selection of other suites, 29 in total, some with private French balconies. All suite guests receive in-room Nespresso coffee makers, full-size bath amenities, and enhanced turndown services. Access to the Executive Lounge is included, offering complimentary breakfast and afternoon refreshments.
