IHG Opens Its Fifth Intercontinental® Hotel In France

InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, is proud to unveil its latest opening InterContinental® Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel, France. The hotel has been elegantly converted from the current Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa and is IHG’s fifth InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property in France.

InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand joins InterContinental® Paris – Le Grand, InterContinental® Paris – Avenue Marceau, InterContinental® Marseille – Hotel Dieu, and InterContinental® Carlton Cannes alongside over 50 IHG hotels already open in France. InterContinental® Lyon – Hotel Dieu signed earlier this is year is due to open in 2018.

The historic building was stylishly refurbished by French Architect and Designer, Jacques Garcia, with rich colourful design typical of his opulent style, while preserving the property’s 18th century splendour. The hotel commands pride of place on Bordeaux’s main square, Place de la Comédie, among high-end boutiques and world-class restaurants. Bordeaux was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007, has since been voted Best European Destination 2015.

The hotel features 130 rooms including 44 suites, and also offers a range of fitness and wellness facilities including an indoor pool and hammam, 10 treatment rooms and a Jacuzzi on the 360° rooftop beach, which beautifully recreates the atmosphere of a summer’s day in the Bay of Arcachon.

The Gordon Ramsay Group headed by the internationally renowned, multi-Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay, brings international flair to the fine dining restaurant, Le Pressoir d’Argent Gordon Ramsay. Executive Chef Gilad Peled prepares uniquely seasonal dishes from the terroir of Bordeaux, all expertly matched with exceptional, prominent wines from the region.

Angela Brav, Chief Executive, Europe, IHG says: “We’re very proud to be opening this iconic hotel in the centre of a legendary winegrowing region and one of Europe’s most elegant cities. With France being one of our most important markets and Bordeaux receiving over five million visitors per year, this move is very much in line with our strategy to expand our award-winning InterContinental Hotels & Resorts brand in the most popular tourist destinations. InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand is the pinnacle of luxury and offers guests authentic enriching experiences, making it the perfect choice for local and international travellers.”

Michel Ohayon, the owner of InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel, said: “With the strength of the InterContinental brand behind us and our partnership with Chef Ramsay at Pressoir d’Argent Gordon Ramsay, our hotel offers local and international guests a compelling experience with exceptional comfort and fine dining whether travelling for business or pleasure.”

The hotel will operate under a management agreement with Financière Immobilière Bordelaise. With 182 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts open worldwide and more than 50 hotels in the global development pipeline, IHG continues to expand the brand’s portfolio in the most sought-after destinations around the world*.

Today, InterContinental is an award-winning brand, picking up accolades such as the coveted title of “World’s Leading Hotel Brand” at the World Travel Awards last year – an award it has held for six consecutive years; and the title of “Best Hotel Brand Worldwide” in this year’s Business Traveller Middle East Awards.
