Luxury at the Hilton Paris Opera

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 is  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.

    The food sounds like a good enough reason to stay at this hotel! Candy and macaroons, and that breakfast! Plus I get my Hilton Honors points.

    This place looks so chic and beautiful!! The free breakfast looks good and not cheap! I’m definitely going to look into this the next time I’m in Paris!

    Wow! This hotel is super gorgeous. That room is so modern, elegant, and chic. I would just want to spend a day lounging in my hotel room 🙂

    • August 20, 2016 / 11:32 pm

      You are right! I wish I had more time when I was visiting – I would have loved to take a day off and lounge in there.

    That looks stunning! I love the Opera district – it’s so convenient and has tons of great bars and restaurants around.

      This was the first time I stayed in this area – but you are right. There is a lot in the area.

    Stunning! What a beautiful hotel. It really is the perfect way to spend a romantic holiday in Paris. And an entire shelf of candy – that is fun! Thanks for sharing this – will definitely keep this on my list for my Europe plan next year.

      I’m so glad to hear that! The hotel really is beautiful <3

    Still dreaming about that breakfast. And that hotel lobby. Cant. get. over. it.

  8. August 18, 2016 / 12:45 pm

    Such an extravagant hotel, love the Parisian style and the photos!

    I was sold when you said: ‘They have an entire shelf of CANDY!’. I don’t get to stay in fancy hotels all that often, but when I do I just LOVE the breakfast buffet 😀

    • August 20, 2016 / 11:35 pm

      I dont eat breakfast out often – but when there is a free buffet – I am in there like swimwear

  10. August 18, 2016 / 2:48 pm

    oooh, what a beautiful hotel! I love how bright the room is. free breakfast is also a nice touch – food in Paris can be so expensive so it’s nice to you if you’re at a luxury hotel that they include that as well 🙂

    • August 20, 2016 / 11:35 pm

      Completely agree! Free food anywhere is a luxury – especially if it is delicious 🙂

      Thank you. I hope you get to visit – it is a lovely city

    The ability to open the windows and take in Paris, and the aroma of baguettes and macarons sounds like the ultimate in luxury. 🙂

      It was so wonderful here. The doors don’t open completely for safety reasons but they do open far enough

    I remember staying there. It was absolutely fabulous.
