Curio Collection by Hilton Introduces Parisian Hospitality with Romance of New York
Located in the heart of Paris’ eighth district, Maison Astor Paris joins the collection’s expanding European portfolio
October 10, 2018 // Franchising.com // PARIS and MCLEAN, Va. - Famed Parisian hotel, Maison Astor Paris, joins the exclusive Curio Collection by Hilton portfolio, a collection of more than 50 upper upscale, one-of-a-kind hotels and resorts, all celebrated for their individuality and appeal to travelers seeking local discovery.
The hotel has a rich history with roots stemming back to the 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 heartbreaking 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 (MHNA), 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.”
- Contemporary design: the hotel’s 131 modernized guest rooms and suites take inspiration from classic Parisian apartments, featuring large windows, beautiful French balconies and high ceilings. All rooms offer complimentary WiFi, an HDTV, work space and Nespresso® machine. Suites offer options such as an ornamental fireplace, terrace, private bedroom, rooftop views and a duplex-style layout.
- Culinary experience: A culinary crossing between Paris and New York City, the hotel’s intimate fine-dining restaurant, Salle à Manger, sits under a bright glass roof offering delicious French dishes made from local, organic ingredients. Guests can enjoy unique and personalized cocktails at the speakeasy-style bar. Room service is also available 24/7.
- Business and leisure facilities: The hotel offers two intimate meeting spaces, equipped with TV screens and LCD projectors: Perfect for private dining experiences, ‘The Travel Study’ can host up to ten people.
