Paris – Hotel Market 2020

Paris, the capital of France, is an international city with a hotel market that attracts transient clients and group business from domestic and foreign travelers at high levels. Paris welcomes 40 million guests per year; it is the most-visited of all the European capital cities.

Only other global hubs (like London and New York) can match its universal appeal for guests and investors. Paris and London have been recognized for the past ten years in a row as two of the most desirable destinations for investment. The Paris market remains one of the most attractive in Europe – and a favorite with investors.

Travelers always choose luxurious Parisian hotels for their short breaks and longer vacations or individual/group meetings and business. Paris gets a balanced mix of leisure and corporate guests.

Therefore, their hotels are in year-round demand, and they have a significant average rate. There are many exceptional hotels located near the city’s business center.

Paris, one of the most romantic cities in the world, has a rich culture that inspires love and magic. It should not be a surprise that lovers feel it is the ideal place for a couples’ getaway.

Of course, the French language is romantic by itself, and a great film at Le Champo is the perfect date. Opened in 1938 on the corner of Rue des Écoles and Rue Champollion, this single-screen cinema with its stunning Art Deco façade and intimate screening rooms shows modern French films (as well as classics) throughout the day and into the evening.

Couples can also take unforgettable dinner cruises at sunset along the Seine River. They enjoy fine French cuisine as they sail past this city’s iconic attractions – including the Eiffel Tower lit up against the night sky. Imagine the phenomenal photo opportunities, and the memories will last a lifetime. Paris is known for its splendid architecture, interesting history, and one-of-a-kind culture.

A private helicopter tour of Paris would be another memorable adventure. You could fly over the winding Seine River and legendary Versailles Palace. Maybe you could even stop over in Versailles, and view the Eiffel Tower, Montparnasse, and La Défense on the return trip. And, of course, share a glass of champagne with that special someone at the end of this magical experience.

As well, Paris is home to the finest restaurants. This city has a multitude of stylish establishments offering delectable dining; many have the most breathtaking views from their spatial terraces.

Paris is also renowned as a city of culture. Art enthusiasts (and lovers in general) will appreciate the Musée de la Vie Romantique (Musuem of Romantic Married Life) at the foot of Montmartre hill in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. This museum houses many temporary collections; there is always something new and exciting to discover at this Paris landmark.

As it celebrates its 131st birthday this year, Moulin Rouge, birthplace of the modern version of the can-can dance, remains a popular tourist attraction. With its romantic décor and musical dance entertainment, this club attracts guests from around the globe.

Located in the bohemian Montmartre district of Paris, Lapin Agile is another cultural gem. Since 1860, it has been the home of performances. Currently, the Au Lapin Agile showcases poets, comedians, and magicians in a charming and intimate setting.

Paris has the best of everything to offer visitors – historic monuments (the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Bastille, the Arc de Triomphe, …), sipping French Chardonnay at a trendy café, gourmet dining, elegant evenings, and alluring nightlife.

Parisian hotels operate by the highest traditional standards, but they also focus on personalized service for today’s guests. Traditional touches, contemporary décor, and the ultimate in comfort and convenience blend together to create opulent style with a modern appeal. Indeed, some Paris hotels are labeled as a “palace” – French terminology for a hotel which is a cut above the five-star rating.

Actually, several Paris hotels resemble palaces with their marble foyers, 17th-century tapestries, crystal chandeliers, Louis XV and XVI style furnishings, and other luxuries. Yet these traditional beauties can also offer the best in ultra-modern amenities such as an award-winning spa.

Travelers to Paris can access a multitude of amazing hotels just a few miles from Orly Airport or Charles de Gaulle Airport. They can savor historical Paris on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, or visit chic designer boutiques on Avenue Montaigne. All the famous attractions of the “City of Light” (La Ville Lumière) are never far away from a Parisian hotel.
