Signature brand of Marriott International, Marriott Hotels, has now welcomed Lyon Marriott Hotel Cité International to its French portfolio. The hotel joins a further 23 Marriott Hotels in France.
Located in the heart of the renowned city, famous for its historical and architectural landmarks, the hotel offers 204 spacious guest rooms and suites, along with an extensive wellness zone including a solarium with views over the rolling hills of Caluire.
A selection of European dishes are served in the hotel’s La Brasserie restaurant, a warm and comforting space clad in warming wood panelling, while the restaurant’s expansive terrace looks out over the Parc de la Tête d’Or, the largest urban park in France. The bar – The Spark – welcomes guests into an intimate setting with a delectable cocktail menu.
For business travellers and corporate meetings, the Marriott Lyon offers a 1,100 square metre conference centre, including 16 prestigious meeting rooms and a multipurpose 435 square metre adaptable space, all with natural daylight.
Plans for a full renovation in 2015 are in progress and will be managed by Les Clés du Luxe, owners of the hotel since July. The new design, envisioned by architects Albert Constantin and Marie Courdouan, will see modernisation of the rooms, meeting spaces, fitness centre and restaurant, as well as the creation of a new bar. The hotel will remain open throughout the renovations with minimum disruption to guests.
“Our entry into the Marriott Hotels portfolio marks a new stage in the development of the largest hotel group in the Rhône-Alpes region,” comments Emmanuel Comble, MD, Les Cles du Luxe.
