Rezidor Hotel Group opens Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes in France

Rezidor, a member of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, announced the opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes in France.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes is housed in the former Court of Justice (Palais de Justice), constructed in 1851 and served as the Nantes Law Court until 2000. The hotel offers 142 rooms, and guests can dine in the former courtroom, use conference facilities and use the deluxe spa.

Architect Jacques Cholet (DTACC) and interior designer Jean-Philippe Nuel worked on the property. Behind the facade, the 142 guestrooms (among them 15 junior suites and five suites) offer brown tones and white furniture exclusively designed for the hotel, decorative art iconographies that remind of masterpieces shown in museums of Nantes, bathrooms and Radisson Blu signature services such as free high speed Internet access.

For business travelers, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes offers six meeting rooms that range in size from over 398 square feet to over 818 square feet and can accommodate 95 guests. Each room provides free high speed Internet access, modern business facilities, and an events team. Also, the historical hotel lobby and a unique space on the mezzanine level are available to host events.

The hotel's main restaurant "L'Assise" is located in the former courtroom; it has been re-invented as a contemporary restaurant helmed by chef Frédéric Laval. The former trial judge section now serves as the restaurant's wine cellar. In the evening, the upper walls of the room are transformed into a projection screen creating a modern ambience for diners in this locale. At the bar "Le Préambule" guests can order cocktails and a variety of wines. Aligned with columns, the bar features a white wing used as a hosting table.

The property also has an over 2,152-square-foot wellness area, comprising a spa including sauna, hammam and a gym.
