charge of the Interior Design of the property.Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Hilton
said: “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. 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 Compagnie de Phalsbourg is a statement of
this intent as we continue our focus on galvanising our growth in France.”Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower will be
located in the 7th arrondissement, renowned as the district of choice for Parisian and the home to France’s
National Assembly, a range of museums, the Invalides and the Eiffel Tower itself. The site on Avenue de Saxe,
sits next to Place de Breteuil and leads towards the Champ de Mars.Philippe Journo, President of Compagnie
de Phalsbourg said: “This is a site we acquired in 2014 with the intention of turning it from commercial space
to an upscale hotel. Our decision to partner with a world class international operator such as Hilton stems
from our intention to maximise the international tourism potential offered by such an enviable location and
potential we see in working alongside them at other sites we are developing in well know destinations such as
the Riviera.”Construction is due to begin shortly on adaptation of two adjacent buildings from the 1900s and
1970s. Additional features to be found within the property include a fitness centre, executive lounge. Philippe
