Maison Astor Paris has joined Curio Collection by Hilton, a collection of more than 50 upper upscale, one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts.
The hotel has a rich history with roots stemming back to the United States. John Jacob Astor IV, a member of the prominent Astor family, was born and raised in the opulence of the New Yorker’s aristocracy; a circle he felt he would never fit in.
Attracted by the City of Lights, he and his wife moved to the French capital and established their residence at the hotel in 1907.
However, the couple did not call the residence home for long as they met their heart-breaking end aboard the RMS Titanic just a few years later.
The legacy of this New York couple continues to positively reflect through this iconic space.
Dressed by the Parisian Studio Marc Hertrich & Nicolas Adnet, Maison Astor Paris is just steps from haute-couture shops and a short metro ride from the Eiffel tower.
It sits on a quiet street between the Opera Garnier and the Champs-Elysées, making the hotel a peaceful hideaway amidst Paris’s bustling city centre.
“We are delighted to welcome this Curio Collection hotel in Paris, a city which is seeing record tourism numbers, exceeding 23 million hotel arrivals for the first time ever in 2017,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton.
“With its elevated, apartment-inspired accommodations and convenient location, Maison Astor Paris provides the ideal base for visitors to explore all that the French capital has to offer, and is a great addition to our growing portfolio of world-class hotels in Europe, with hotels located in major destinations, including Barcelona, Reykjavik, Hamburg, Siena and more.”
