The intricate details of the columns, the hand-crafted walls, and ceilings all combine to create an experience that can transcend you to a different time- such is the case with Hilton Paris Opera.

Located in the Opera Quarter, the hotel is right in the centre of Paris and steps away from the public transportation. With the Opéra Garnier, the Louvre Museum and the famous department stores, Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps all easily accessible, you can easily get your art and shopping fix without having to venture too far out.
One of the best features of the hotel is easily the Le Grand Salon- which represents the grandeur and history of Paris. Sitting in the heart of the hotel, guests can enjoy delicious drinks and food with a stunning background.
