ibis, Europe’s leading economy hospitality brand, opens a new franchised hotel in Lille, France. The ibis Lille Centre Grand Palais is the first to showcase every new concept that this brand is introducing. The ibis Lille Centre Grand Palais is a short walk from Lille Flandres and Lille Europe train stations and also close to the two subways of the city, in a downtown location, and in a quiet spot.

It is in a prime position for tourists who want to explore the city, near the Palais des Congrès (a convention center), Zénith (a concert venue), the town hall and its Beffroi (belfry, one of the city's landmarks), the old part of town and all the main interesting cultural, touristic and economic locations.

The hotel spans seven stories and was built to encapsulate the brand's up-to-the-minute comfort spirit by Olivier Dolicque and Baptiste Plantet from APSIS, a Lille-based architect firm. It has 91 Sweet Rooms by ibis™, including nine suites and three rooms for mobility-impaired guests.

The rooms are 17 to 21 sq. m. and all have the Sweet Bed by ibis™, including the duvet and super-soft pillows, 22-inch flat-screen LCD TVs, generously-sized bathrooms, modular desks and free Wi-Fi. And a lot of work went into the soundproofing so guests can also sleep and work peacefully. Prices start at €73€.

The hotel also offers ibis kitchen Lounge concept. To suit guests' preferences, breakfast is served from 6:30 to 10:00 am and the buffet includes a choice of local specialties. The Lounge Bar welcomes patrons 24/7 and serves an assortment of snacks in laid-back, easygoing surroundings decorated with a sense of humor (bubbly visuals, rocking chairs, game-board tables and more).

The ibis Lille Centre Grand Palais also has a light-filled 30 sq. m. meeting room opening out onto a terrace for professional customers. This meeting room can seat 14 to 22 people depending on the configuration and includes a video-projector, screen and Wi-Fi access.
