Minor Hotels will debut in France’s capital Paris with the addition of three four-star hotels in 2024.
Minor Hotels will welcome to its family the 207-key NH Paris Gare de l’Est and the 103-key NH Opéra Paris Faubourg. The third property with 90 keys will open as NH Paris Champs-Elysées and will then be launched in 2025 as NH Collection following a renovation.
These three hotels, which will be refurbished, are located in some of the most well-known areas for shopping, dining and sightseeing, and are close to main tourist sites such as the Louvre, the national opera and the Champs-Elysées.
The three hotels in Paris will join Minor Hotels’ current portfolio of six properties in the country located in Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse and Nice.
“Our team has been searching for the right opportunities in this key market for some time, so we are pleased to announce that, together with Swiss Life AM, Minor Hotels will arrive in Paris not with one but with three hotels. We believe this is an amazing opportunity to grow with two of our brands in the second most visited city in the world and home to the 2024 Olympics,” commented Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels and Group CEO of parent company Minor International.
Johanna Capoani, head of hospitality, Swiss Life Asset Managers France, added: “We believe that our synergies will create a new offer under the NH Hotels and NH Collection brands and added value to our customers.”
Future openings for Minor Hotels include NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa in Finland, NH Collection Chiang Mai in Thailand and NH Collection Luang Prabang in Laos.
