IHG to open Crowne Plaza hotel in Lyon
Published: 04/09/2013 - Filed under: News »
Intercontinental Hotels Group will open a Crowne Plaza hotel in Lyon in early 2014, it has been announced.
The 164-room Crowne Plaza Lyon - Cite Internationale is located on the banks of the Rhone within the business district of the same name.
An existing hotel, the property will undergo rebranding under a franchise agreement with Societe des Cinq Soeurs Pochettino (SCSP) before opening in the first quarter of next year.
Once under the IHG umbrella, it will feature a full-service restaurant and bar.
Brice Marguet, IHG'd director of development, France and North Africa, said: "Crowne Plaza Lyon - Cite Internationale is a significant signing for us in France. Lyon is a key city in France and an important European business hub."
The global portfolio of the Crowne Plaza brand has doubled since 2003 to nearly 400 hotels, with a further 97 due to open in the next three to five years.

Another Concorde hotel disappearing as expected...
That's this one, right?

Nice to see another IHG in Lyon. The only one they have left is Vaise, which is a nice hotel, but not central.
