Hilton Paris Opera is steeped in tradition and its prime location in one of the world's great cities made it a natural choice for the podcast series. Initially finished in 1889, the hotel underwent a €46 million renovation which was completed in January 2015. Upon its original opening, Hilton Paris Opera offered 500 rooms and featured some of the latest technological innovations such as telephones and elevators, and was in fact the first ever hotel to be supplied with electricity.

The hotel's architecture is equally as impressive, with Le Grand Salon one of the most impressive and imposing rooms. Now listed as a historical monument, it is quintessentially Haussmann in scale and "Belle Epoque" in style, with its hand-painted frescos by Charles Lameire, Corinthian colonnades and impressive, original balustrades.

The four other hotels profiled in the new audio guides are Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre (Iceland); Conrad Dublin (Ireland); Hilton London Bankside (United Kingdom); and Reichshof Hamburg, Curio a Collection by Hilton (Germany).
