Project overview

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.
