Marriot at Lyon

Lyon, the second-largest metropolitan area in France, now has a Marriott Hotel, the previous Hilton rebranding on 30 January.  The property joins a further 23 Marriott Hotels in France.

The hotel has an outstanding position sitting on the Avenue Charles de Gaulle overlooking the River Rhône on one side and the Parc de la Tête d’Or, the largest urban park in France, to the south.  It offers 204 guestrooms and suites along with an extensive wellness zone including a solarium with views over the rolling hills of Caluire.  

The hotel is by the Convention Centre and Lyon Saint-Exupery Airport is just 30 minutes away.   From 1 May 2015 Lyon will be connected to London on certain days of the week when Eurostar introduces a service to Marseille

For business travellers and corporate meetings, the Marriott Lyon offers a 1,100m2 conference centre, including 16 prestigious meeting rooms and a multipurpose 435m2 adaptable space, all with natural daylight.

Plans for a full renovation in 2015 are in progress which will see modernisation of the rooms, meeting spaces, fitness centre and restaurant, as well as the creation of a new bar.  The hotel will remain open throughout the renovations with minimum disruption to guests. www.marriott.co.uk
