Hilton has announced its flagship Hilton Hotels and Resorts brand will add a second property in central Paris.
The 118-room Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower will be located in the 7th arrondissement district.
Philippe Journo, President of Compagnie de Phalsbourg said: “This is a site we acquired in 2014 with the intention of turning it from commercial space to an upscale hotel. Our decision to partner with a world class international operator such as Hilton stems from our intention to maximise the international tourism potential offered by such an enviable location and potential we see in working alongside them at other sites we are developing in well know destinations such as the Riviera.”
Construction is due to begin shortly on adaptation of two adjacent buildings from the 1900s and 1970s. Additional features will include a fitness centre and executive lounge.
