The InterContinental Hotels Group has signed the InterContinental Bordeaux - Le Grand Hotel, France, which is set to open later this year as IHG's sixth InterContinental Hotels & Resorts property in France. InterContinental Bordeaux - Le Grand will join InterContinental Paris - Le Grand, InterContinental Paris - Avenue Marceau, InterContinental Marseille - Hotel Dieu, InterContinental Carlton Cannes, and most recently InterContinental Lyon - Hotel Dieu. The hotel will operate under a management agreement with Financière Immobilière Bordelaise.
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, focusing on seasonal ingredients from the terroir of Bordeaux, matched with the region's wines.
In addition, seven meeting rooms, an indoor pool (the Bain de Léa) as well as fitness, spa and hammam facilities will be available.
IHG operates 179 InterContinental Hotels & Resorts properties globally, with 51 hotels in the pipeline. IHG already operates 55 hotels in France, with seven hotels in the pipeline.
