Opening of the presigious InterContinental hotel and the International City of Gastronomy

Last phase of works for the Grand Hôtel-Dieu site

The transformation of the Grand Hôtel-Dieu, a listed historic monument, will soon be complete with two eagerly awaited openings. The InterContinental Hotel will open in June. It will boast 144 rooms, including 33 suites, and 1515 m² of reception spaces in the heart of this exceptional heritage site.
This will be followed by the International City of Gastronomy in the autumn. Its main vocation will be to hand down know-how, as well as to highlight the importance of a balanced diet. It will offer 4000 m² dedicated to gastronomy-related exhibitions and experiences.

  • Le Grand Réfectoire et L'Officine
    On the same spot where the nuns used to have their meals, the Grand Réfectoire serves up bistronomic cuisine with hints of Lyon’s terroir and flavours from distant places: 350 seats including 150 to come on the terrace.
    L’Officine, a premium bar with capacity for 120 guests, stays open until 1 am. It is possible to hold spirit tasting sessions as a team building activity and hire the 80 m² vaulted cellar for private events.

  • Les Halles du Grand Hôtel-Dieu
    Located under the historic arches of the Grand Hôtel Dieu, it could be described as the “stomach” of Lyon. Iconic healthy-eating outlets, artisans and holders of the title Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (MOF) work together to offer high quality food.
    Les Halles du Grand Hôtel-Dieu can be hired for private events for up to 300 guests. A fine place to explore Lyon’s gastronomy.
