Hôtel-Dieu in Marseille
Ideally located only a short distance from the Old Port, the former Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Marseille has been entirely converted into a five-star InterContinental hotel.
Eiffage Construction and Eiffage Énergie redeveloped the building in less than three years, in partnership with two architectural firms, Anthony Béchu and Tangram Architectes, as well as the Nuel interior design agency.

The 194-room hotel, which opened in April 2013, features a conference centre, bar, brasserie, restaurant, cultural centre, indoor pool and spa. The façades, roofs and monumental staircases are listed historical features and were carefully preserved.
Marble and stucco were applied and tapestries hung on the walls. Eiffage Énergie installed all lighting, air-conditioning, fire protection and plumbing systems.
