Jean-Philippe Nuel designs InterContinental Marseille - Hotel Dieu

InterContinental Hotels and Resorts opened within the heart of Marseille in France of the luxury hotel, InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu.

Located atop Le Panier, the oldest part of France's second largest city, InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu is a XVIIIth century building, known as the former Hotel Dieu, which is an example of an eighteenth century listed building.

The building, designed by a nephew of Mansart, contains staircases, vaulted passage ways and large terraces. The property overlooks the city and offers views of the Vieux Port and the Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica.


Entrusted to the hands Jean-Philippe Nuel, an expert in luxury hotel design, the architecture of the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu remains faithful to the spirit and the history of the institution. The design draws its inspiration from the Mediterranean Ocean.

InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu has 194 rooms (including 22 suites), two restaurants, a bar, a terrace with 160 seats, a Spa by Clarins that is 10,764 square feet, an indoor pool and a choice of reception areas. Seventy-two of the property’s rooms offer views of the Vieux Port, while a number of suites have private terraces overlooking the city center.
