The Hilton Arc de Triomphe Paris Opens

After two years of development, the Hilton Arc de Triomphe Paris, headed up by General Manager Olivier Chavy, opened its doors to the public on May 12, 2004.It benefits from an exceptional location, just a few minutes walk from the Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe.

The designer and architect, Jacques Garcia and Alexandre Danan, were inspired by the most prestigious Art Deco artists to bring to life the elegant era of the great transatlantic liners of the Thirties.

In the heart of the hotel, an amazing 800 sqm Andalusian Patio reveals 10 huge palm trees, a fountain and exotic horticultural species.

Its 508 rooms, including 24 suites, compete with each other for elegance while incorporating the very latest technology.  Two floors are dedicated to Executive rooms with access to the Executive Lounge and 46 rooms have terraces with breathtaking views over Paris.

The 1,700 sqm of conference facilities include a 640 sqm modular Ballroom (for up to 600 delegates in theatre style), 11 state-of-the-art meeting rooms (that comply with Hilton Meetings standards) and a full-service Business Centre.


The restaurant “Le Safran”, with 3 outdoor terraces, offers an exquisite menu of traditional French cuisine fusing it with modern influences from around the world:  “Assiette Safran” (marinated fennel with saffron, stuffed “Espelette” peppers, tomato confits and buffalas’ mozzarella, tapenade), “Zafaran” (an authentic lamb recipe with oriental flavour and saffron spice), Praline “Emotion” with lemon-orange cream.  A specially created brunch menu is available exclusively on Saturdays and Sundays.

With its grand entrance on the rue du Courcelles, the “Purple Bar” has become one of the most fashionable places to be: with its sumptuous 30s décor of strong shapes and luxurious furnishings one could almost imagine oneself relaxing in the bar of a sprawling transatlantic liner. To match these surroundings, a team of talented mixologists have created a cocktail and drinks menu to suit any mood.

To relax, a 400 sqm health and beauty center, the Mosaïc Spa by Carita/Decléor, offers a fitness room, 10 treatment rooms, a hydro tonic round with massaging jet showers, a steam bath and a sauna.

Special discovery rate until December 31st, 2004: from 270 Euros (subject to availability)
