Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 8 July 2013

The 298-room Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel recently joined Marriott Internationals portfolio of more than 3,800 properties worldwide under a franchise agreement with WB Ambassador SAS.

Located in the heart of the city, the historic property is the companys 12th property in Paris.

Located on the right bank of the River Seine in the 9th Arrondissement, the Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel is a few minutes walk from the citys major attractions including the Opera House, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Le Louvre, Place Vendome, Jardins des Tuileries and Galleries Lafayette.

Also in close proximity to the business district, Paris Stock Exchange and numerous shops and restaurants, the hotel is a perfect base from which business and leisure travellers can explore this remarkable city.

Originally built in 1927, the hotel was the vision of the influential architect Baron Haussmann who was commissioned to   reshape Paris' streets and architecture. The property has an illustrious past as host to royalty, politicians and visiting heads of state along with important historical figures such as Charles Lindbergh and Gustave Eiffel. The hotel famously hosted Charles Lindberghs celebrations as he historically completed the first solo flight across the Atlantic and named the hotel bar in his honour.

We are delighted to grow our footprint in Paris with this timeless property, said Amy McPherson, President and Managing Director of Marriott International in Europe. There has never been a more exciting time to introduce our fourth Marriott property to the market with the many transformative changes happening within our signature brand. Paris is one of the most dynamic and sought after cities in the world and we look forward to being ready to host the next generation of travellers.
