Crowne Plaza hotels open in Paris and London

CROWNE PLAZA, part of the InterContinental Hotel Group, has opened new properties in London and Paris.  The London – Kensington hotel, a former Holiday Inn, has been the subject of a UKP8m remodelling which retains the building's Victorian façade contrasting with a very contemporary interior.  The new 162-room Crowne Plaza includes 31 club rooms, 20 split-level suites, all offering exclusive club lounge access.  The 328-room Crowne Plaza Paris République is the fifth Crowne Plaza in France and the second in Paris, alongside the Crowne Plaza Paris Champs Elysées.  Built in 1865 during Napoleon III's reign, the building boasts the classic Parisian Haussman-style exterior and an historic inner courtyard.  Its '10 Bar' offers views directly onto the République square while its new '10 Restaurant' serves French cuisine under the direction of chef David Desplanques, formerly of Robuchon and Ducasse.  It is just three stops from the Gare du Nord Eurostar terminal. www.crownplaza.com
