InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) opened InterContinental Bordeaux - Le Grand Hotel, France. The hotel was converted from Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa and is now IHG’s fifth InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property in France.
The historic building was refurbished by French architect and designer Jacques Garcia. In the redesign of the property located at Bordeaux’s main square, Place de la Comédie, the building’s 18th century characters were preserved. Bordeaux was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
The hotel has 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-degree rooftop beach.
For dining, the property has Le Pressoir d’Argent Gordon Ramsay from the Gordon Ramsay Group headed by Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay.
The hotel will operate under a management agreement with Financière Immobilière Bordelaise.
IHG now has 182 properties worldwide and more than 50 hotels in the global development pipeline.
