A central location for business and leisure travelers - just steps from the Champs Elysees
The InterContinental Paris Marceau -- in the 8th arrondissement and steps from the Champs Elysees -- is ideally situated in the center of Paris's fashion, business and tourism hub. Within walking distance are a number of restaurants as well as Paris's top shopping district on avenue Montaigne and the Faubourg Saint Honore. In addition to shopping, guests will be able to walk to L'Arc de Triomphe. Business travelers can access the La Defense business area via the nearby George V metro station. The hotel's concierge team can assist with airport transfers and reservations.
This historic Parisian building near Champs Elysees -- once a private mansion of Comte de Breteuil, and formerly known as the Crowne Plaza hotel -- is now owned by the InterContinental brand. But the property doesn't feel like a chain, offering 55 rooms and stylish boutique design by Bruno Borrione. Well-dressed guests linger in the communal areas, which include a lounge, and outdoor terrace surrounded by potted plants and classic architecture. The attached jazz-themed restaurant serves continental breakfast in the mornings and international gourmet cuisine for lunch and dinner. Rooms are modern and bright, with red accents, black and white ceiling murals, iPod/iPad docks, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs. Bathrooms -- also impressive -- include sliding doors, deep sinks, shower/tub combos and Hermes toiletries. A number of features were provided with business travelers in mind, including the high-tech meeting space and business corner, which are decorated with hip wall murals and atmospheric lighting. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
