Hilton plans next hotel in central Paris

Hilton's flagship Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand is adding a second property in central Paris. The company signed a management agreement with owner Compagnie de Phalsbourg to operate the 118-guestroom Hilton Paris Eiffel Tower. French designer Philippe Starck will be in charge of the property's interior design while Atelier Cos, a company that specializes in luxury and upscale hotels, will create the architectural concept for the property.

“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,“ Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Hilton said in a statement. 

Philippe Journo, president of Compagnie de Phalsbourg said that the company acquired the land in 2014, and had planned on turning the former commercial space into an upscale hotel.
