The project reflects the Group’s ambition to broaden its presence in France where the company plans to increase its portfolio in Paris and in other major cities such as Marseille, Lyon, Nice, Lille, Bordeaux or Toulouse, as well as in the areas surrounding key airports through its brands NH Collection, NH Hotels and nhow.
The hotel, which will be the Group’s first hotel operating under its premium NH Collection brand in France, will occupy a building in the process of renovation, just 350 metres from the third-largest port in Europe, 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the Gare Sain Charles train station. . The economic, industrial, cultural and commercial activity of the city, as well as the central location where the hotel will be set - in the heart of an urban development area named Euroméditerranée - make this project a great opportunity for NH Hotel Group.
NH Collection houses the company’s upper-upscale hotels and aims to fulfil the demands of the discerning leisure and business traveller looking for excellent standards in comfort, a wide range of top-quality products and services, and personal and friendly treatment in strategic city locations. The Group places great importance on not only satisfying the needs of those seeking this service but exceeding their expectations of every NH Collection hotel and its service.
The NH Collection Marseille will feature 176 rooms, three meeting rooms, a fitness centre and a wide range of services that are characteristic of NH Hotel Group. Its extraordinary location in the centre of Marseille, a city boasting one of the highest commercial and tourist capacities on the French coast, plus its excellent connections to places of interest and transport services, support NH Hotel Group’s choice for continuing its expansion in France, which is a strategic country for the company over the next few years.
