IHG® Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of voco® Strasbourg Centre - The Garden, marking the brand’s second opening in France, following the opening of voco® Paris Montparnasse in September last year. The hotel is located less than a ten-minute walk from the city’s central station, with direct trains available from Strasbourg Airport. The European Parliament is also a short electric bus ride away, with easy access to the newly developed Archipel-Wacken business district and the Palais des Congrès convention centre.
The façade of voco Strasbourg Centre - The Garden takes its design cues from the industrial era, with the original brickwork dating from the 19th Century highlighted using wrought iron. The 120 guest rooms, many with their own terraces, blend a botanically inspired palette, with panelling and contrast lighting. Set against a leafy backdrop with a large outside terrace area and lawn, the hotel’s onsite restaurant, ‘The Garden’, offers all-day dining with menus combining international and local specialities created with locally sourced ingredients in mind. For example, guests can enjoy locally-made, sustainability-sourced juices, honey and jams at breakfast. There is also a fully equipped gym, indoor pool, and spa with treatment rooms featuring a living wall, low lights and loungers.
Aurelia Gonthier, General Manager, voco® Strasbourg Centre - The Garden, commented on the new opening: “We are excited to be opening our doors to guests as a voco™. Our hotel offers guests the perfect place to relax whilst only being a short distance from a multitude of beautiful attractions the city has to offer. voco™ Hotels are all about delivering a great guest experience and we look forward to offering a warm welcome to guests, both existing and new when they choose to stay with us.”
Will Yell, Head of voco™ EMEAA, IHG Hotels & Resorts added: “voco Strasbourg Centre - The Garden is a perfect example of what the brand stands for. We pride ourselves on being reliably different and celebrate each hotel’s individual spirit and character, whether it’s a newly built property or a well-known building with its own history. The brand has seen extraordinary growth since launching only two and a half years ago. There are already 15 hotels open globally and a further 23 due to open in the next 3-5 years. Our second hotel in France, voco Strasbourg Centre - The Garden is an excellent addition to our growing portfolio.”
