PARIS - Hilton Paris Opera, the classic Paris hotel that debuted a chic new look earlier this year following a $50 million refurbishment, announced today a partnership with LEGO® on an exclusive summer promotion to kick off on July 3, 2015. Ideal for families traveling in Paris through early September, 'SUMMER FUN with LEGO Bricks' at Hilton Paris Opera marks LEGO's first collaboration with Hilton Hotels & Resorts in France.

"We are excited to offer families a fun and different travel experience this summer," said Sofia Vandaele, general manager, Hilton Paris Opera. "In the city synonymous with exploration and discovery, what better way to engage our younger travelers!"

Included in the 'SUMMER FUN with LEGO Bricks' package is a great overnight experience, buffet breakfast, a choice of one of three LEGO boxes as a gift, a My Little Hilton back-pack and 20 percent discount voucher at BHV MARAIS, Parisians' favorite department store. For Families, a 50 percent discount is offered for a second connecting room to accommodate parents and kids comfortably. Additionally, during July and August, children staying at the hotel can build their own LEGO projects at one of two fully stocked play tables located in Le Grand Salon. Kids workshops will be animated on Wednesday and Saturday afternoon in July.

For die-hard LEGO fans, an exclusive Luxury set of 2,500 bricks to explore the creation of their very own Hilton Paris Opera building at home will be available for sale.

Hilton Paris Opera will also host an exhibition made with LEGO bricks featuring Paris' most famous landmark buildings and international personalities, which will be unveiled on July 3 and remains open until September 6. The exhibit will take place in Le Petit Bar & Le Grand Salon as well as Salon Baccarat, with a large scale model of Hilton Paris Opera exclusively built for the hotel by Dirk Denoyelle, LEGO Certified Professional. Guests can marvel at models of Sacré-Coeur and the Eiffel Tower, all made of LEGO bricks, as well as impressions of several international personalities, including Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin, and other work from the private collection of Dirk Denoyelle.

Visitors can mark their visit by signing one of the bricks and contribute to the exhibition's very own LEGO® DUPLO® wall.

Founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, the LEGO Group aims to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow through creative play and learning. All LEGO products are based on this underlying philosophy of learning and development through play. The LEGO brand values include imagination, creativity, fun, learning, caring, and quality. LEGO bricks are all part of the LEGO system, which means they can easily be combined in innumerable ways, and just as easily dismantled. The combination of a structured system, logic, and unlimited creativity encourages children to learn through play in a wholly unique LEGO fashion.

Located in the heart of the Right Bank's Opera district, a short distance from the ChampsElysées and French boutique shopping experiences at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps Haussmann, Hilton Paris Opera was originally the vision of architect Juste Lisch. Having first opened in 1889 to welcome visitors of the Exposition Universelle, the hotel has undergone a $50m refurbishment that returns it to its former glory in exquisite style. This historical centrepiece of the hotel is the majestic Le Grand Salon which, along with 268 guest rooms and suites, several bars and restaurants, plus meeting and event space have all been transformed under the close supervision of acclaimed design firm Richmond International. Each part of Hilton Paris Opera has been carefully created in a sophisticated style, paying homage to the hotel's storied history while providing an updated aesthetic for today's traveler.

Hilton Paris Opera is located within close proximity to Saint-Lazare railway station; approximately 17 miles from Charles de Gaulle Airport; 14 miles from Paris Orly Airport; and five miles from the La Défense business district.

Reservations and general enquiries can be made by calling +33 (0) 1 40 08 44 44 or emailing parisopera.sales@hilton.com.
