“ Siquis enim militarium vel honoratorum aut nobilis inter suos rumore tenus esset insimulatus fovisse par tes hostiles, inie onere catenarum in modum beluae trahebatur et inimico urgente vel nullo, quasi sufficiente hoc solo, quod nominatus esset aut delatus auto postulatus, capite vel multatione bonorum aut insulari solitude damnabatur. ”

InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu… A dream come true! Conceive, believe, accomplish! We did it! In April 2013 the Hôtel-Dieu Marseille will appear in its former splendor. It took time, vision and a lot of resources to successfully complete this magnificent building. For InterContinental Hotels, this ambitious project in a city such as Marseille with its promising future was the perfect oppor tunity to fulfill their enduring wish to be present in major European cities. How thrilling it is today to see the doors of this fabulous hotel open to welcome an international clientele; to know that we too will play our par t in promoting this vibrant city of Marseille, European Capital of Culture 2013.


Ever ything is possible in Marseille. In order to transform the Hôtel-Dieu into this stunning 5* hotel it was necessar y to work with a highly motivated team able to implement exceptional standards. We have engaged the project with all our exper tise, quality standards, and our commitment to offer the Hôtel-Dieu our best talents. We have now accomplished our mission. As we are celebrating Cogedim’s 50th Anniversar y, the Hôtel-Dieu is more than ever the symbol our our idea of proper ty development. I genuinely hope that the people of Marseille as well as any other visitor will discover that unique site with as much pleasure as what we had while renovating it.
