Hilton Paris Opera will open its doors again in January 2015. The hotel was closed for an extensive restoration that cost the famous company US$50 million.

The suite features a huge living room with high ceilings, one king bed in master bedroom, one more bedroom with twin beds, two private bathrooms, and a large walk-in shower. Some suites with round exterior are located on both sides of the building. These Rotonde suites come with private balconies. There are also 10 one bedroom suites and 14 junior suites in the hotel.
