The hotel is located in the higher floors of the city’s iconic Part-Dieu Tower where views stretch as far as the French Alps and Mont Blanc.

On arrival, guests are welcomed into an expansive lobby area lit by an 18-metre high light installation underneath the tower’s glass roof.

Groups of up to 350 can be hosted in the hotel’s meeting facilities, located on the 32nd floor, with 11 rooms spread across 500sqm of event space, before enjoying fine dining from a seasonal menu at the hotel’s signature eatery, Celest Bar & Restaurant.

The property’s central location means groups have quick access to Lyon’s UNESCO protected historical quarter, as well as the banks of the Rhone river and the Beaujolais vineyards.
