June 27, 2013 - London – Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR) today announced that the 298-room Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel will join its portfolio of more than 3,800 properties worldwide on 1st July 2013 under a franchise agreement with WB AMBASSADOR SAS.  Located in the heart of the city, the historic property will become the most recent addition to Marriott International’s signature global brand, Marriott Hotels, and represents the company’s 12th property in Paris. 

“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.” 

Located on the right bank of the River Seine in the 9th Arrondissement and Opera Quarter, the Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel is a few minutes’ walk from the city’s major attractions including the Opera House, Montmartre, Sacre Coeur, Le Louvre, Place Vendome, Jardins des Tuileries and Galleries Lafayette with world class shopping and boutiques.  Also in close proximity to the business district, Paris Stock Exchange and numerous shops and restaurants, the hotel is the perfect base for business and leisure travellers.

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 Lindbergh’s celebrations as he historically completed the first solo flight across the Atlantic and named the hotel bar in his honour.   

Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel 2The Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel’s 298 guestrooms are stylish and thoughtfully designed with clean lines and a soothing colour palette.  Guests will be able to enjoy the chic Bar Lindbergh and gourmet restaurant, 16 Haussmann, serving exquisite French cuisine. Leisure facilities include a fitness centre and executive lounge with city views.  The hotel’s 9 meeting rooms and 630 square metres of meeting space will accommodate all manner of meetings and events.  In 2014, the lobby will be remodeled to seamlessly accommodate work and play, reflecting the changing behaviour of the next generation traveller.

Marriott Hotels has been “re-imagining” the guest experience, transforming lobbies and public spaces and implementing technology such as Red Coat Direct and Mobile Guest Services.  This month, Marriott Hotels launched a new global marketing campaign called “Travel Brilliantly.” It reflects the transformative changes taking place at Marriott Hotels around the world and is a bold move amplifying the brand’s dedication to leading the future of travel.  For more information, visit www.MarriottHotels.com and www.travelbrilliantly.com.
