Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 7 July 2010

Rezidor has signed a Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes in France.

The famous Palais de Justice in Nantes, capital of the Pays de la Loire region, will be converted into an 142-room property which will welcome the first guests in 2013.

The 19th century Palais de Justice is a local landmark and its elegant, classical faade overlooks bustling Aristide Briand Square in the city centre of Nantes. The building served as a courthouse until 2000 and the local government recently authorised its transformation into an upscale hotel and cultural centre.

The interior by the French designer Jean-Philippe Nuel (Agence Nuel) will be sophisticated and contemporary, but reflective of the local culture and the historical aspects of the building. In addition to 142 guestrooms - including 20 suites - there will be an all-day-dining restaurant in the former courtroom, a bar, 320 m2 of meeting space, an exclusive spa, and a cultural centre which will also be used for events.

With a city centre location, the hotel is proximate to Nantes main high street and well-known shopping areas. The citys main tourist attractions, such as Le Chteau des Ducs de Bretagne (a castle housing the Nantes History Museum) and La Galerie des Machines (a Jules Verne inspired attraction) are within walking distance. The train station is 1.5 km away and links the city by high speed TGV lines to Paris, Lille, Lyon, Marseille and Strasbourg. Nantes is also the gateway to many of the resort areas along the Atlantic Coast of France.

Rezidor now features 26 hotels with a total of 4,300 rooms in operation and under development in France, and is present in major cities such a Paris, Bordeaux, Marseille, Nice and Lyon.
