Hilton Paris Opera Review: Beautiful Family Hotel in Paris
Hilton Paris Opera is a true Parisian gem, centrally located in the heart of the Opera District and within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées, the Arc De Triomphe and a quick train ride to the Louvre and Notre Dame.
During the holiday season, Hilton Paris Opera is dressed to the nines and full of hospitality. The historic building is chocked full of Parisian charm and impeccably outfitted in both public and private spaces. Upon check in, we were greeted with smiles and holiday warmth and felt instantly at home in Paris. After a quick check in, we were escorted to our rooms by a friendly staff member.
Prior to our visit, I spent some time securing adjoining rooms for our family of five. The hotel staff was quick to respond to any and all of my questions and requests.
As we entered our corner rooms, we were immediately impressed by the beautiful furniture and amazing views of the city of lights. We were able to open our windows and take in the energy that the Opera District had to offer. The bathrooms featured a beautiful white marble shower and heated floors and the bed linens were soft and inviting.
Well-Stocked Executive Lounge
During our stay, we did a lot of sightseeing, which meant plenty of walking and very little down time. We really cherished our moments relaxing in the executive lounge, enjoying complimentary beverages and appetizers.
We were particularly impressed with the variety of foods the lounge had to offer. Every 10 minutes or so, the staff would bring out new appetizers. Some of our favorites included gourmet cheeses, croque monsieurs and oversized soft pretzels.
In the morning we started our day with an incredible breakfast spread in the lounge. From the standard eggs and bacon to french pastries and lattes, you could satisfy any craving you may have. My kids loved having a hot chocolate and a muffin before our busy days of exploring Paris.
Generous and Friendly Staff
Perhaps the best surprise of our stay was the generosity of the hotel. My children were greeted with a Lego set to play with and bring home. My husband and I were given a lovely bottle of French wine and some delicious French desserts to snack on after a long day of travel.
On our last full day there, the kids were invited to decorate gingerbread men with the resident head chef. The fun began with some treats and apple juice and chef hat decorating.
Once they were decked out in their very own chef hats, they learned a little about how to frost cookies from the chef. After they got the technique down, they went to work on a few gingerbread men.
At the end, the staff sent my kids away with loads of candy and a tray with their cookies. They were thrilled to have spent time doing something to invoke the holiday spirit. When you are traveling far from home, especially during the holidays, even little of gestures to make a guest feel at home can make a big impact.
Our time at Hilton Paris Opera was one of the most memorable parts of our European adventure. The beautiful and historic surroundings, combined with the staff’s top-notch hospitality, make Hilton Paris Opera the best family hotel in Paris.
