InterContinental Hotels: 5-Star Luxury in Two Paris Locations

Whether you are looking for trendy or traditional InterContinental has a hotel for you. We think of them both as affordable luxury.

Paris Le Grand

Paris Le Grand, the original InterContinental Hotel Paris, is in an historic landmark building decorated in classic Louis XV style.

Set in the 9th Arrondissement, it's literally steps away from the Palais Garnier opera house, itself historic landmark dating from the Haussmannian era of the 19th century.

The second, newer Intercontinental hotel in Paris is Avenue Marceau. Named after the iconic street it's on, the Marceau is all about cool, modern elegance.

Avenue Marceau is part of a chic and trendy quartier of the 8th Arrondissement the spins off the Etoile, where you find the Arc de Triomphe just next to the Champs-Elysées.

We've discovered that the InterContinental Hotels in Paris generally have lower rates than many of the other luxury hotels in the city. That — combined with elegant decor, great service, and fab locations — make them a great choice for luxe accommodations in the City of Luxe!

Set in the very heart of things, the historic 9th Arrondissement, the InterContinental Paris Hotel Le Grand is close to chic shopping, the theatre, Place Vendôme and Palais Garnier, the stunning Belle Époque Paris opera house.

You'll find the perfect service and the decor you'd expect from a hotel of this caliber. And then there's the spa — a fully-equipped fitness center open 24/7 as well as the luxurious I-Spa that offers thalassotherapy treatments, sea treatments and massages.

The InterContinental Paris Hotel Le Grand offers 72 suites, each decorated to reflect the historical heritage of this Paris landmark building.

There are four Presidential suites as well as a Honeymoon Suite, with inspiring views overlooking the Paris opera house.

Le Grand's Restaurants

Paris Le Grand

La Verriere is Le Grand's impressive winter garden restaurant that dominates the lobby of the hotel. Here you relax over breakfast or lunch while people-watching. In the evening, La Verriere is transformed into a wonderland of soft light.

The other restaurant in the InterContinental Paris Le Grand, Café de la Paix, was built in 1862 and retains the look and feel of the glamour of the Belle Époque.

Here you'll find the classic French recipes, prepared by top chefs, as you'd expect in a luxury hotel. Sit underneath the frescoed ceilings and gilded wood panelling and gaze at the Palais Garnier, directly across the street.

InterContinental Hotel Avenue Marceau

"Perfect location, special hotel”

Hotel Marceau

The newest InterContinental Hotel in Paris is this trendy boutique hotel just off Champs Elysée on luxe Avenue Marceau. Once a private mansion, the hotel has been recreated as a base for travelers, whether you're in Paris for business or just for pleasure.

The Marceau has features that will appeal to business travelers. There's plenty of meeting space as well as easy access to La Défense business region (a quick Metro ride away) and Palais des Congrès, the central Paris convention center.

Hotel Marceau

If you're in Paris seeking the good things in life you'll find Avenue Montaigne's haute couture less than 10 minutes away on foot. Or you might want to visit the jewelers on chi-chi Place Vendome or one of the 3-star restaurants. For modern elegance the InterContinental Avenue Marceau is a perfect choice.

On the top floor the suites look over not just one Paris monument, but two — the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.

In the rooms a very soothing environment has been created — decoration in neutral tones and with modern furniture.
