Hilton has announced that its flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand will add a second property in central Paris, Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower.
The plans were unveiled at MIPIM this week in conjunction with owner Compagnie de Phalsbourg with whom Hilton has signed a management agreement to operate the 118-room property. The renowned French visionary designer Philippe Starck will be in charge of the interior design of the property.
Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower will be located in the 7th arrondissement, renowned as the district of choice for Parisian and the home to France’s National Assembly, a range of museums, the Invalides and the Eiffel Tower itself. The site on Avenue de Saxe, sits next to Place de Breteuil and leads towards the Champ de Mars.
Construction is due to begin shortly on adaptation of two adjacent buildings from the 1900s and 1970s. Additional features to be found within the property include a fitness centre and executive lounge. Philippe Starck will be in charge of the interior design of the property to bring French elegance and flair into the historical building while Atelier Cos, who specialise in luxury and upscale hotels, develops the architectural concept for the property.
Andreas Lackner, regional head, full service brand management, Hilton added: “Paris remains one of the most enviable cities in the world for any traveller. Our existing Hilton Paris Opera is one of the brand’s most popular properties amongst our global network of loyal customers and we cannot wait to begin welcoming guests to this new property within such proximity to so many Parisian landmarks.”
