InterContinental Hotels Group will open a new property in Bordeaux, France later in 2015. The InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel, will be the sixth InterContinental property in France. InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand will join InterContinental® Paris – Le Grand, InterContinental® Paris – Avenue Marceau, InterContinental® Marseille – Hotel Dieu, InterContinental® Carlton Cannes which I have reviewed, and most recently InterContinental® Lyon – Hotel Dieu.
The hotel occupies a prime location on Place de la Comédie, Bordeaux’s central square and is surrounded by the finest shops and restaurants in the heart of Bordeaux, a city that was recently voted Europe’s top destination to visit for 2015 by European Best Destinations.
The historic 130-room property, which dates back to 1776, will be converted from the current Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa over the coming months. The hotel’s food and beverage offering will be overseen by the Gordon Ramsay Group as it makes its first foray into Bordeaux and will include the fine dining restaurant – Le Pressoir D’Argent.
In addition, seven meeting rooms, an indoor pool (the Bain de Léa) as well as fitness, spa and hammam facilities will be available. Offering a range of luxurious rooms and suites, the hotel is well equipped to meet the needs of both business and leisure guests travelling to the city.
This hotel, which was previously a member of Leading Hotels of the World, also has a wonderful rooftop terrace (pictured above) with views that are not to be missed. It will become an InterContinental property towards the end of the year.
