InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the Intercontinental Paris Avenue Marceau, its 28th property in Paris.
The hotel is located near to Paris’ Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees, and will be managed as part of a ten year contract with the building’s owner Groupe Cible Expansion.
The 55-room property was until recently the Crowne Plaza Paris Champs Elysees, which first opened in 2008. The hotel is located within three separate heritage buildings from different historical periods.
As well as its guestrooms, the hotel has two penthouse suites, one of which is terraced with views of the Eiffel Tower. Le M64, the hotel’s conservatory restaurant, opens on to a courtyard with outdoor seating during the summer.
Interior décor was masterminded by Bruno Borrione, a member of Philippe Starck’s design team. IHG said the hotel was a mix of “French classical and urban contemporary design” with “Venetian Renaissance frescos” and modern furniture.
Each bedroom has Bang & Olufsen sound systems and Nespresso coffee machines. Other hotel facilities include meeting suites and a 24-hour gym.
The Intercontinental Paris Avenue Marceau is one of 28 hotels in the city and 63 hotels across France operating under one of IHG’s seven brands.
IHG said it has around 1,500 hotels in its development pipeline over the next few years.
