Built in 1753, the Hôtel Dieu in Marseille, overlooking the Old Port, is being transformed into a 5-star luxury hotel. With this development, Marseille is positioning itself as a formidable Euro-Mediterranean metropolis.
The future luxury hotel will be located in a building built in the 18th century, located in the heart of the Panier district, included in the "inventaire supplémentaire des monuments historiques", a French inventory of historical monuments. An extension is also planned.
It will have 180 rooms, 13 suites and one 150 sqm Presidential Suite as well as conference and meeting rooms, a bistro, a restaurant, a bar, a swimming pool, gym, a wellness centre (spa, steam room, sauna, massage) and a car park.
In line with the architects' desire to retain the old structural aspect of the building, only the hotel's interior decor will have a modern edge, while highlighting the old structural features. Architectural and technical aspects were established in accordance with the requirements of the future operator, Intercontinental, and environmental quality (HQE) standards.
Egis will be project manager for the design and implementation of this substantial rehabilitation of a historic monument.
