The 118-room Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower will open in 2019 in the French capital's 7th arrondissement, near France's National Assembly, a range of museums, Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower. Designer Philippe Starck will oversee the interior design of the property, which will span two buildings that formerly housed offices. The hotel will have a fitness center and an executive lounge; at press time, details on dining outlets and meeting space were not available.

"Since marking the return of our core brand to central Paris in 2015, expanding its presence in the city has been high on our agenda," said Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development for Hilton. "As the leading name in global hospitality, this brand demands standout locations and ambitious partners willing to work with us to create dynamic hospitality experiences that will add to Paris' global appeal. This hotel and our partnership with owner Compagnie de Phalsbourg is a statement of this intent, as we continue our focus on galvanizing our growth in France."
Andreas Lackner, regional head of full-service brand management for Hilton, added: "Paris remains one of the most enviable cities in the world for any traveler. Our existing Hilton Paris Opéra 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."
