This chic hotel is the perfect excuse for a Paris getaway

..with the Eiffel tower on your doorstep.

Touching down for a Paris getaway at Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadéro one evening in early March, I couldn't help but be mesmerised by the romance of the French capital, cliche as it might be. Despite the chill in the air, stepping out to the lights of the Eiffel Tower lighting up the entrance of the hotel was a surreal sight that really makes you feel like the main character in your own movie. I couldn't wait to indulge, explore and soak up the charm of Parisian life during my trip over the next few days.

Few things comes to mind when you think of Paris – for me its fashion, Carrie Bradshaw (yes her Paris getaway but also the iconic voilà le french hat and le french fry beret moment) and baguettes, well food in general. I stayed at the hotel during Paris Fashion Week so the fashion was all over the city, with models occasionally welcomed into the hotel for fittings, it felt connected to the city-wide event.

Between shows I found down time to enjoy the details of the hotel that felt like an unwind to the city, a serene rooftop for one, showing the Eiffel Tower in one direction, almost at the touch of your finger tips and the opposite direction, a Parisian landscape just as romantic. And the food definitely did not miss, whether I ate at the hotel or at a french cafe nearby – it was all my Parisian city dreams lived into reality.

Mornings at Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadéro were energising, I woke up with glee and felt inspired by my surroundings. The hotel is located in the 16th arrondissement which is known for being the heart of Paris, with all its charm and swankiness. There are so many treasures to be found here, from museums such as Fondation Louis Vuitton and the Palais de Tokyo to hidden cafe spots that are less touristy and more metropolitan luxe.

Every morning started with a nourishing buffet breakfast with a selection of French award-winning pastries that are irresistible, fresh juices and crepes and break galore. I stepped out onto the streets of Paris post-breakfast with a spring in my step for the day ahead. The metro was 3 min walk away and mostly it was my way to get around and take the city in, between fashion shows I would come back to the hotel for a little indulgence – whether a creme brûlée and tea or strawberries and champagne and it was the reset I needed before adventuring back out.

Is Paris good for a city break?

In Paris, sitting outside a cafe with a book, a glass of wine and people watching is considered a good-day spent and actually encouraged – do you need any other reason to make it your next destination for a weekend break? There's just something magical about wandering the streets, rain or shine – you can get lost in much of the city's beauty of architecture and art and its world famous love affair with food, oh and the wine is also worth a mention.

The city has this dramatic charm, especially when it's raining, which never stops the Parisians from cosying up outside restaurants. On one rainy afternoon, I took myself vintage shopping and then for lunch and it was the perfect date with myself. Paris always leaves me feeling so inspired about food, fashion and people and refreshed about life. You might stumble upon a charming bakery tucked away on a quiet street corner or like me find yourself lost in rails of vintage treasure spots. So yes, Paris really does live up to its tales and then some.

What food is on offer at the hotel?

The award-winning breakfast is just the beginning of the food that is on offer at the hotel. For a memorable dining experience, head to "L'Esprit Nouveau," where the glass roof bathes the restaurant in natural light, creating a welcoming atmosphere for business lunches, casual gatherings, and everything in between. It is the perfect metropolitan spot for any time of day.

On Sundays there is a lunch buffet on offer at the hotel, with everything from oysters to crepes, you really can eat your heart out. Food is available on a room-service menu, a perfect option to satisfy those cravings for small bites between meals in the comfort of your bed.

What are the rooms like?

Every detail has been carefully considered, from the subtle lighting that casts a warm glow across the room to the thoughtful amenities that cater to your every need. There is a modern approach to everything including the socks instead of slippers provided in the rooms. The room balcony is the ideal spot to sip your morning coffee and take in the breathtaking views of the city which will have you feeling more Parisian than a beret.

The comfort of the rooms is worth a mention, from the luxurious bedding to the contemporary furniture choices, the space is made to provide a refuge from the chaos of daily life, a space where you can truly just take a moment.
