posted by Lenny Spangberg @ 21:08 PM

On Thursday16th May, I attended the presentation of the Légion d’honneur to Didier Boidin, Vice President Intercontinental-Western Europe by Mr. Sénateur Maire Jean-Claude Gaudin.

On this occasion, I had the opportunity to discover the new Intercontinental Hotel Marseille, which has been fully renovated from former hospital Hotel-Dieu into a luxury hotel of 196 rooms overlooking Notre-Dame de la Garde and the old port of Marseille.

A sophisticated contemporary decor, 2 restaurants and bars, several meeting rooms, a beautiful spa and a huge terrace facing the “Bonne mère” and the old port!

A new asset for Marseille, European Capital of Culture 2013!

Last week I went to Marrakech and Casablanca. I discovered recently opened hotels and those about to be inaugurated.

The Royal Mansour

At the invitation of its Director General, Jean-Pierre Chaumard, I visited the Royal Mansour which is probably one of the finest hostel in the world.
Consisting of 53 riads of one to three bedrooms, built as an authentic medina, 5 minutes from the famous Jamaa El Fna, this palace is absolutely beautiful! In addition, each customer deserve special attention from the 530 employees. The service is really unique!

More and more opportunities for hotel acquisitions

As a  consequence of the crisis, the French Riviera offers more and more opportunities for hotel acquisitions in all categories and sizes of businesses. Prices become available and moderate, offering real opportunities for investors:
