Hilton Paris Opera

Opulent. The word I would use to describe the Hilton Paris Opera if only one word were allowed.

Although my stay was short, it was memorable. I came to Paris for about 24 hours from Amsterdam through Rail Europe on their high speed luxury train offering, Thalys. From the second I stepped foot into the Hilton Paris Opera, I was like a kid at Christmas – wide eyed and speechless.

Stacked with high ceilings, beautiful chandeliers and stunning architectural touches, you will be amazed in person to see the detailing of this historic hotel.

Beyond the reception area isΒ  Le Grand Salon, the focal point of the hotel and a historical masterpiece. You can enjoy cocktails in here, have a tea and read a book or just take it all in. Which ever you choose, you are going to be amazed.

The Rooms:

The hotel offers 268 rooms of your choosing. The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms are outstanding. Light, bright and airy is how I would describe them – with small accent colors like light blues, yellows and greys. The warmth of the room is very welcoming.

One of the things I enjoyed most about my room was being able to open the windows slightly and take in all of Paris. The smell of baguettes and macarons fill the street, along with other delicious pastries.

Just looking out the window and seeing all the other amazing buildings around is a beautiful site. Some people enjoy beach views, but when in Paris – definitely take the building views.

Executive Lounge:

The hotel does have an executive lounge filled to the brim with snacks and beverages. The first thing I looked for when I arrived was French treats – and surely, I found them. They had macarons in there and my heart was happy.

There are different types of foods and snacks throughout the day in here, so stop in when you’re hungry and see what they have.

Bonus: They have an entire shelf of CANDY!

FREE Breakfast:

Words that are music to my ears. Not only do they offer a free breakfast buffet, but it is luxurious! Smoked salmon, cheeses, pastries, fresh squeezed juices, bacon, fruits, and the list goes on. When you get free breakfast at a luxury hotel – you know it is going to be good.
