With demand for hotels surging to record levels in Paris in view of the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games, Thailand-based Minor Hotels is set to launch three properties in the first quarter of 2024.

According to a press statement, Minor Hotels will make its debut in the French capital with the addition of three four-star hotels. The group will launch three NH Hotels in Q1 2024, with one of the properties to be rebranded as NH Collection in 2025 following a renovation.

The statement adds that after a careful selection process, owning company Swiss Life Asset Managers France has chosen Minor Hotels to manage the three hotels. The addition of these properties is part of Minor Hotels’ strategic growth plans to expand into key cities in Europe. 

The group will make its debut in Paris with 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.

The statement adds that these three hotels, which will be refurbished, will offer travellers 400 guest rooms to enjoy the French capital, as well as a restaurant and bars to enjoy the local gastronomy. Right in the heart of the city, the hotels are located in some of the most well-known areas for shopping, dining and sightseeing, and close to the main tourist sites such as the Louvre, the national opera and the Champs-Elysées.
