The Altis Avenida Hotel Lisbon

Hotel Altis Avenida is a boutique hotel, with an extraordinary location in the city centre on the Praça dos Restauradores.

The InterContinental Bordeaux - Le Grand Hotel

Eighteenth century architect, Victor Louis, designed both the Comédie-Française and the garden galleries of the Palais-Royal in Paris, but the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux is considered his masterpiece. The Grand Hotel de Bordeaux, also designed by Louis with a matching neoclassical façade, sits across the street from the theater in the Golden triangle, a historic hub of Bordeaux known as the "quartier des Grands Hommes". Converted to a hotel by a Bordeaux businessman, who purchased it in 1999 and lovingly restored it, the Grand Hotel opened in 2007 to acclaim. Featuring a deluxe spa, the Bains de Léa, and multiple restaurants and bars within its confines, the hotel offers an extraordinary, imperial-styled experience.
