Cour des Loges hotel in Vieux-Lyon, a UNESCO World Heritage listed district, will join the Radisson Collection.

Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce that Cour des Loges hotel in Vieux-Lyon, a UNESCO World Heritage listed district, will join Radisson Collection. The latest signing brings the Group’s portfolio in France to 19 hotels and 3,280 rooms in operation or under development.

Located in the historic Vieux-Lyon district, Cour des Loges will receive a thoughtful renovation in 2021, introducing the exceptional Radisson Collection brand to the hotel while preserving the character and history of the building.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group says: “Radisson Collection is a relevant brand to owners and guests alike – around 35 hotels have joined the brand in less than 18 months. We are very pleased to announce the signing of our third Radisson Collection hotel in France. We thank our partners for their trust in our brand and people”.

The renovation will position the hotel as a premium destination for business and leisure travelers alike, featuring 60 guest rooms, including two junior suites and four suites. Guests will be able to take full advantage of leisure activities such as a fitness center and spa with a swimming pool, sauna, hammam, jacuzzi, relaxation room, and two treatment rooms. Business clientele will also be able to make use of 343m2 meeting space spread over 6 meeting rooms.

In keeping with Lyon’s reputation for haute cuisine, the hotel will offer guests a variety of gourmet fine dining options, including Michelin star chef Anthony Bonnet’s restaurant, Les Loges. Having trained alongside the best award-winning culinary experts in Lyon, Anthony has created a dining destination within the hotel, with a spectacular menu using locally sourced produce. Elsewhere, diners can also indulge in the bistro Le Café-Épicerie and relax in the cigarette lounge bar, Le Bar Fumoir. Guests will also be offered cooking classes hosted by experts at La Petite Loge.

Situated in the heart of the largest Renaissance district of Lyon, guests staying at the hotel will be immersed in culture, surrounded by historical landmarks such as Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière and Place Bellecour. The iconic destination also offers guests a wide range of cultural festivities including the Festival of Lights, the Lumiere Film Festival and the Nuits Sonores. The hotel can be easily accessed from two local train stations and is conveniently only 21km the airport.
