Successive hotels’ official openings have taken place at a fast pace in Bordeaux in the last months: the Hilton Garden Inn last August, the Radisson Blu in September and the Golden Tulip in November. The city’s ability to host large-scale corporate events is constantly upgrading. Those – mostly internationally renowned – hotel groups attract customers from all around the world. Several projects confirm this trend for the years to come and guarantee an enriched offer. From 14,000 rooms and 220 hotels in 2019, Bordeaux’s hotel capacity will rise to almost 15,000 rooms in 2020.
Since last 21st of December, the Palais Gallien – located in the historic quarter of the city - will welcome its guests in the 22 rooms of its 5 star hotel. The Euratlantique neighbourhood, future economic lung of Bordeaux next to the train station, will welcome from May 2019 La Zoologie, a 4 star hotel with 40 rooms, in the historic building of the Institute of Zoology. The Hotel Meininger, half hostel and half hotel (a mix much appreciated by the German group), laid the cornerstone of its new building for an opening in 2020. At the very same date les Bassins à Flots – the former docks which are nowadays booming with activities – will see the transformation of their protected silo in a 4 star hotel with 150 rooms, a restaurant with a panoramic swimming pool, and a 3 star hotel with 133 rooms and a hostel. Next to the airport, the Hilton Group will build a Double Tree hotel of 177 rooms and a congress centre by the end of 2019. The MOB Hotel Group has set its sight on the Brazza’s quays to launch in 2021 its concept of 120 rooms with a bar, vegetable gardens, an open-air cinema and a swimming pool underneath a tropical greenhouse.
