Youíll get lounge access and can take breakfast in the restaurant. I though the latter was quite extensive, and would recommend eating there as the lounge can get very crowded.
Thanks all for the advice!
After reading some rather negative things (executive lounge small and cramped, breakfast restaurant not cosy, poor upgrades, tiny rooms etc.) and after reading quiet a few negative reviews on TA from Honors elites lately, we decided to cancel our booking as we feel the points are better spent elsewhere. Just booked a room in another (non chain) 4* hotel. Stellar reviews on TA and less than a 3rd of the Hilton cash price. There are some amazing deals to be found in Paris in August!
