The former Grand Hotel Terminus, one of Paris’ original majestic hotels, has reopened as the Hilton Paris Opera Hotel following an extensive US$50m renovation. This work has been carried out under the supervision of interior experts Richmond.
Designed by architect Juste Lisch, the hotel first welcomed visitors to the Exposition Universelle of 1889. It is located in the heart of the Right Bank's Opera district, a short distance from the Champs-Elysées. The hotel has been revamped with a chic and contemporary new look with the glorious Le Grand Salon retained. There are 268 guest rooms and suites.
Whilst most guests will use the lifts, outstanding is the staircase leading to the accommodation where commissioned artworks decorate the corridor.
Parisian references, including bespoke wallpaper to the headboard wall, create a suggestive backdrop to the décor detailing high-gloss surfaces feature heavily throughout. Each bathroom has been re-designed to accommodate sizeable polished stone vanities and spacious walk-in showers.
The hotel also boasts a state-of-the-art fitness centre, plus six meeting rooms with natural daylight. The Baccarat ballroom, featuring vintage chandeliers from the famous crystal maker, has been refurbished to its former splendour and is able to accommodate various events for up to 180 guests. www.hilton.com
