IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group)

The nine trusted hotel brands of IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Goup) welcome you in France with more than 55 properties on the continent as well as 4 resorts in French Polynesia (part of 4,700 hotels worldwide).

From the luxury of InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts, the first truly international hotel brand with a 70 year-long history to the family-friendly Holiday Inn® Hotels & Resorts, where Kids Stay and Eat Free, is always ready to welcome you in beautiful France.

Besides, as a member of the award-winning loyalty programme, IHG® Rewards Club, you will earn points towards free travel, and enjoy free Internet at all properties. In France, IHG welcomes you at the following locations:

  • InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts***** (Paris, Marseille, Cannes, Moorea, Tahiti, Beachcomber): being worldly local is what they do best - from the In The Know promise to the leading Clefs d'Or Concierges, they ook forward to welcoming you in the heart of history. Ask for the table where Picasso used to sit in InterContinental Paris Le Grand's Café de la Paix or stay where Grace Kelly became Princess of Monaco at InterContinental Carlton Cannes, unless you prefer to explore Tahiti with the resident marinologists.
