Slated to open in 2019, 118-room Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower will be close to France's National Assembly, a range of museums, the Invalides and the Eiffel Tower itself. Working in partnership with owner Compagnie de Phalsbourg, the brand intends to begin construction immediately. Meanwhile, renowned designer Philippe Starck will be in charge of the property’s interior design.
Andreas Lackner, regional head, full service brand management at Hilton said: "Paris remains one of the most enviable cities in the world for any traveller. Our existing Hilton Paris Opera is one of the brand's most popular properties amongst our global network of loyal customers and we cannot wait to begin welcoming guests to this new property within such proximity to so many Parisian landmarks."
