Hilton Paris Opera (Paris, France)
Formerly known as the Concorde Paris Opera, the 268-room Hilton Paris Opera will debut a new name when it unveils in $50 million renovation in the coming weeks. The 125-year-old grande dame will maintain all of its classic Parisian elegance, but present it in a sleeker, more technology-driven way. Inside, the color scheme has been amped up to give accommodations a bolder look, which is tampered with a range of delicate brass furnishings. Crystal chandeliers, impressive frescoes, Corinthian colonnades, and mosaic flooring also pay tribute the hotel's long and luxurious history.
