History

The past, a rich heritage

InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel has become part of the life of its city, its heritage, its region and its vineyards. What was true from the end of the 18th century, at the very beginning of its history, is still true 207 years later, with the same strength, the same commitment, the same passion and the same desire for perfection. InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel is the place for all types of meetings and emotions.

A dream, a history

Right in the heart of the golden triangle, generally known as the “quartier des Grands Hommes”, the historic hub of the city of Bordeaux, architect Victor Louis added the final touches to the construction of a mansion house. This inspired architect also designed the Opera House. A reference in the art of building! The same neoclassical-inspired façade, same Corinthian style colonnade, same excessive interior style, like the astonishing Marble Room, now called the Sauternes Salon, a marvel of marvels: the mirror effect is immediate between the Opera House and the Grand Hotel, striking, and at the same time the harmony of the whole Place de la Comédie reaches perfection. These new buildings immediately entered the hearts of the people of Bordeaux forever.

The Grand Hôtel was therefore born under the sign of Excellence.

The years and decades passed and asserted the hotel”s reputation, reinforced by legendary guests, like the Deputy… Victor Hugo who, in 1870, made this visionary statement from the neighbouring terrace of the Café de Bordeaux: “If we do not want any more wars in Europe, we must create Europe”. Visionary, did we say… Then History with a capital “H” began to slow down. As the years went by, life in the hotel lost some of its intensity and some of its splendour. But the myth lived on.
