i By May 27, 2023 No Comments

The InterContinental Chantilly – Château Mont Royal is the latest addition to IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury & Lifestyle portfolio in France.

The historic 107-key château, signed under a management agreement with Groupe BMF and Groupe PFH, will undergo a complete renovation before opening in 2024.

Joining the InterContinental Paris Le Grand and InterContinental Lyon – Hotel Dieu alongside three other InterContinental properties in Paris, Bordeaux and Marseille, the InterContinental Chantilly will serve as a flagship hotel for the brand in the country.

It will also become IHG’s third luxury opening in France in the last five years, following InterContinental Lyon – Hotel Dieu in 2019, and Kimpton Paris St. Honoré in 2021.

Built in the early 20th century and showcasing Louis XVI style architecture, InterContinental Chantilly – Château Mont Royal will feature two restaurants, a bar and a summer terrace as well as 11 meeting rooms, a gym, sauna, jacuzzi and treatment rooms alongside an indoor swimming pool and tennis court.

Chantilly is situated just 40-kilometers from Paris and 20 minutes from Charles de Gaulle Airport. The town is renowned for its elegant royal heritage, intricately woven lace, and popular racecourse, which was founded in 1840 and is the venue of the annual “Prix de Diane” held each June.

(Mrs) Willemijn Geels, vice-president, Development Europe, IHG Hotels & Resorts, said: “In signing InterContinental Chantilly – Château Mont Royal, we are delighted to have brought another luxurious property to our portfolio in France, through which we’ll further enhance the longstanding legacy of the world’s oldest luxury hotel brand. Adding another landmark hotel in one of Europe’s most desired destinations is a proud moment for everyone at IHG. We’re delighted to be maintaining the momentum of our Luxury & Lifestyle growth and demonstrate our commitment to growing our portfolio in European leisure destinations.”

Fabien Bertini, founder of Groupe BMF and Simon Pinto, president, Groupe PFH, said: “We are proud to be partnering with IHG Hotels & Resorts – a true powerhouse of the hotel industry – to bring to life our vision for InterContinental Chantilly – Château Mont Royal. Together, we’re undertaking one of the most exciting hotel projects in the region and we are confident that IHG’s global scale and enterprise platform will enable us to share the beauty of this hotel with guests from across the world. The InterContinental brand is one of the most iconic in the world, and we’re delighted to be continuing its great tradition here in France.”
