Pullman Hotels, Accor’s upscale brand, is revolutionizing the interiors of its five Parisian hotels, with refurbishments scheduled to last until the first quarter of 2014.
This ambitious overhaul, called “Pullman Paris Live,” involves the renovation of over 2,500 rooms and the reinventing of 28,000 square feet of public areas so the establishments will be even better equipped to cater for the needs of the brand’s cosmopolitan clientele of seasoned travelers.
After the transformations, the Paris Pullman hotels (Montparnasse, Bercy, Tour Eiffel, La Défense and Charles de Gaulle Airport) will showcase the new approach to upscale hospitality invented by Pullman, an experience that blends efficiency with pleasure and a lifestyle where business and relaxation are not inconsistent.
Pullman is launching an operation that aims to transform its five Parisian hotels.
All five establishments, which are located in emblematic districts of the French capital, are initiating a period of refurbishment involving architects and interior designers.
The project involving 30 months of renovations, the refurbishment of 2,510 rooms and the redesigning of 28,000 square feet of public areas.
Several features have been reinvented — services, interior design, removal of partitions to expand each space, etc.
An organization system has been deployed so that the establishments can continue to welcome guests during the refurbishment period.
The renovations will be discrete and the top priority will be to preserve customer’s well-being and comfort.
As a result, guests will be privy to each hotel’s new look as the renovations progress.
The project includes a large-scale information campaign and internal training program that will last throughout the renovation period.
Communication aimed at customers has also been initiated to accompany the refurbishment and promote the brand’s differentiating features.
A section on a dedicated website will highlight Pullman’s specific professions, for example, the Welcomer, the Event Manager or the Open Kitchen cooks.
In January, work starts at the Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel. In March, the Pullman Paris La Défense and Pullman Paris Montparnasse will be unveiled, followed by the Pullman Paris Bercy in September, the Pullman Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in December and the Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel in April 2014.
