Previously the Concorde Opera Paris, the landmark property is located in the Right Bank’s Opéra district, close to the Champs-Elysées, and first opened in 1889 to welcome visitors of the Exposition Universelle.

The £33m refurbishment involved each of the 268 guest rooms and suites, several bars and restaurants, and the meeting and event spaces, which have all been given a 'sophisticated' makeover that pays homage the to hotel's storied history.

The hotel offers 12 meeting spaces, including 180-capacity Baccarat ballroom, which features vintage chandeliers from the famous crystal maker, and Le Grand Salon with 46-foot high ceilings and hand-painted frescos. There is free wi-fi throughout and for corporate guests it is a short train ride from the La Defense business district.

The spectacular lobby is adorned with crystal chandeliers, Scottish granite columns, statues and art pieces by Charles Joseph Lameire.

Heading up the hotel's dining options is the Terminus Café, which serves 'innovative, refined, modern French' fare in a 1900s ambiance, while Le Petit Bar offers tapas alongside cocktails and digestifs. The Golden Black Bar is an alternative drinking option.

A state-of-the-art fitness centre completes the hotel's offer.
