Headed to the City of Light for Valentine’s Day? More than 125 years after its original birth, Hilton Paris Opera has officially opened after a $50 million renovation.

Located in the Right Bank Opera district, the 268-room hotel is just minutes from the Champs-Elysées and French boutique shopping experiences at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann.

Carefully renovated to maintain the historic grandeur of the original building blended with contemporary, modern style, highlights of the property include the elegantly appointed 900 square-foot Maria Callas Suite, the hotel’s master suite. Besides a spacious living room with the high ceilings typical of a Parisian Haussmann building, the suite features a master bedroom with one king bed and a second bedroom with twin beds, both with private bathrooms designed with a large polished stone vanity and spacious walk-in shower.

We’re not normally one to comment on ballrooms, but the renovated Baccarat space is fantastic, featuring vintage chandeliers from the famous crystal maker. The ballroom was lovingly refurbished to its former splendour and makes us dream of fabulous white tie affairs.

But the heart of the hotel is Le Grand Salon, located just off the main lobby. Designed in the Belle Epoque style, the room features 46-foot high ceilings and hand-painted frescos it provides the perfect place to relax and people-watch, while the nearby Le Petit Bar is the perfect place for a glass of Champagne or a cafe au lait.
