Despite several trips to Paris we’d never stayed in this property before and loved it, here’s our experience at the Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero.
Just half a block away from Place Trocadero, the Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero is an Eiffel Tower dream from a global chain hotel with a boutique feel. Place Trocadero, on the west side of the Right Bank, gives a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower and is walkable to area restaurants both locally focused and more touristy locations. The Arc de Triomphe is a short drive away.

The hotel has a boutique feel from the exterior. When we checked in after 6 pm, we had a limited amount of time in Paris and wanted to get out as soon as possible. We had intended to stay for just one night on this surprise stay before heading home from Europe. As such, we missed out on the opportunity to visit the fitness center and we the newly reopened rooftop bar was set to open up the following night; we received a preview before its reopening with bubbles that allow guests to have an inside dining experience without the chilly night air effects during the winter months.
Some suites facing the courtyard feature an outdoor space with chairs and lanterns. The Eiffel tower is visible from the rooftop space, and the hotel utilizes the space to grow herbs like Rosemary and Mint.
Hilton Honors Benefits
As a Hilton Honors Diamond member, my family received an upgrade to a junior suite, though it was simply a larger room and not a separate bedroom from the living space. The room had a balcony view that was not to be missed.
Canopy, as a brand, prioritizes sustainability. As such, they do not include bottles of water in the rooms but rather an empty glass jar which can be filled in the lobby with purified water.
Breakfast is in the lobby bar and restaurant with both buffet and menu items. Hilton Honors Gold and Diamond elite members have a full breakfast benefit outside the United States for up to (4) registered guests per room.
Though it was beyond the hotel’s obligation, they allowed us to pick some items from the buffet but also order from the menu. That was very generous and appreciated as some items on the buffet tempted us and others not as much.
In addition to hot buffet items, a selection of fresh baked breads, cereal packets, and a variety of juices, teas, coffee, and “detox” water were available.
Unavailable on the buffet were pancakes and french toast. We ordered one of each so our daughter could try both, plus the “Chef’s Egg.” One of the more unique egg dishes we’ve had, the salmon was mixed in with the poached egg, dill and herb cream on the side. The french toast was also very, very impressive. We recommend both.
Our room was slightly larger than others on our floor but the only difference was the shower and bath which would have eaten into some of the space of the room. The Canopy brand does a nice job of using space smartly. A good example of that is the abbreviated desk, suffient for a laptop but not unnecessarily large.
The toilet water closet is to the left of the entrance, convenient for families and those who may welcome guests. That said, it’s the only such time I can recall no toilet in the bathroom (shower, vanity, and tub but toilet in the hallway.)
The bedroom had more than enough space, a couch with pullout queen bed was made for our daughter. Without the bed pulled out, there was a lot of room for a Parisian hotel and it was one more reason to love this hotel.
A Nespresso machine has plenty of coffee, a minibar underneath with triggered slots, and an open wardrobe that features space for luggage and a pair of large drawers underneath.
The reason I chose this property was its proximity to the Eiffel tower due to our short stay. The balcony view was incredible and our daughter was elated to not only be so close, but such stunning views with on-the-hour sparkling lights.
The water closet toilet (pictured below) was welcome as I mentioned before.
The bathroom had both a soaking bathtub, and a very large shower, with a vanity and large mirror.
I wasn’t familiar with the toiletry brand, thankyou. I am surprised I hadn’t come across it sooner but we liked it.
We loved our stay at the Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero. It reminded me that luxury isn’t just terrycloth robes and marble floors, sometimes it’s a perfect location with a walkout to the Eiffel tower. Cash rates range from €330 to €650 or 80,000 Hilton Honors points. In this instance, as we value Honors points at 0.4¢/point (or $.004/point), readers should use points for their stay, unless it drops below €320/night.
For the size of the premium room, its great location, the honoring of our elite benefits, and the great staff, there’s no question we will be back and recommend the same for LiveAndLetsFly.com readers.
