3 September, 2013 - InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) one of the world’s largest hotel companies, is delighted to announce the signing of the Crowne Plaza hotel in Lyon, France: Crowne Plaza Lyon – Cité Internationale.
Due to open in quarter one 2014, the 164-room property will undergo a rapid rebranding from an existing hotel under a franchise agreement with Societe des Cinq Soeurs Pochettino (SCSP).
The hotel will be located within the ‘Cité Internationale’, one of the most popular business sites in Lyon and home to 15,000m2 of offices and its own convention centre, Palais des Congrès. Situated on the banks of the Rh?ne River and overlooking the Tête d’Or Park, Crowne Plaza Lyon – Cité Internationale will offer stunning views of the park and surrounding area. It will also be connected to the major road network and the tram line that links to Part-Dieu Train Station, providing easy access to the city centre, the Paris-Marseille high-speed railway and nearby airports.
The hotel will offer a full-service restaurant and bar, and guests will be able to enjoy a variety of quality menu items for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Brice Marguet, Director of Development, France and North Africa said: “Crowne Plaza Lyon – Cité Internationale is a significant signing for us in France. Lyon is a key city in France and an important European business hub. We’re delighted to be working with SCSP to create a hotel that will provide great guest experiences and quality business services, with a particular expertise around meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions.”
