The TOPHOTELCONSTRUCTION database shows France focusing on luxury and upscale segments projects.

As the decade comes to a close, we look to the future with some projected figures for France’s hospitality industry. The nation’s hotel pipeline looks to be in good shape, and we take a deep dive into hotel development in France with some stats from the TOPHOTELPROJECTS databases.

Luxury and upscale segments prove popular in France

One of the cradles of European culture, France is no stranger to opulence and luxury, so it is perhaps no surprise that it’s current hospitality pipeline is looking the most healthy in the luxury and upscale segments. Out of France’s total of 114 projects (17,402 rooms), 56 of them will be 4-star hotels, while 40 will be 5-star. The majority of the projects are currently in the planning (48) or construction (42) phases, meaning they should be on track for openings in 2021 (38), 2022 (24) and 2023 (20), with 2024 and beyond seeing the opening of 23 properties.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the French capital of Paris will receive the lion’s share of the new hotels, with 31 venues set to open over the coming years, while Roissy-en-France, Nice, Gonesse and Nanterre will welcome 11, eight, five and four properties respectively. Despite the wealth of hotels to open in the upper tiers of the hospitality sectors, the biggest brands are mid-scale offerings, including Hilton Garden Inn with five hotels, Courtyard by Marriott with four properties and Hampton by Hilton with three hotels.

Notable projects

Radisson Blu Hotel Rouen

This 93-key property is slated to open in the second quarter of 2020. A 5-star new build property in the heart of historic French city of Rouen, the Radisson Blu will provide ample accommodation for anyone wishing to explore this medieval town and its highlights, including the Tour Jeanne D’Arc. Situated adjacent to a typically French building, the architecture will blend old with new, and will offer guest the choice of Radisson’s reliable guest rooms or nine suites, as well as access to meeting facilities and an on site gym and spa.

Le Menton – Hotel Garavan

Due to open at the beginning of 2021, this 104-key new build hotel is located on the southern French coast just north of Monaco. Sited on a prestigious area of land that stretches down from landscaped gardens all the way to the sea, this 5-star property boasts and eco-friendly architectural approach, as well as extensive conference and meeting facilities, as well as a state of the art spa, making the hotel ideal for both business and leisure travelers. The highlight of the property are the panoramic views out over the ocean from the many terraces that are incorporated into the hotel, while the bottom two floors are designed to invite the public in, making them vibrant and active.

Maison Heler Metz – A Curio by Hilton Collection

Located in the newly developed Quartier de l’Amphithéâtre neighbourhood, this unusual 5-star luxury new build will form part of the redevelopment of the former Metz freight station. The 14 storey hotel consists of two parts – a rectangular volume on which a turreted house is perched. The result is an ambitious project which combines conceptual areas by designers such as Phillippe Starck with entertainment and retail elements, as well as meeting and wellness facilities. The hotel will be in close proximity to the Centre Pompidou-Metz, the Muse shopping centre and the Congress Centre.

According to the TOPHOTELCONSTRUCTION online database, 114 hotel projects are currently in the pipeline in France:
