InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has raised its first ever voco flag in France, with the inauguration of voco Paris Montparnasse.

Managed by Paris Inn Group, IHG’s voco brand will also debut in the picturesque Strasbourg later this year, in the unofficial champagne capital Reims in 2021, and in Burgundy’s Beaune in 2022.

The 102-room voco Paris Montparnasse embodies the unique characteristics of voco, with exclusive features and distinctive hallmarks setting it apart for a memorable stay. The stylish, timeless and contemporary design by Fabien Roque from Roque Interieurs goes hand-in-hand with seamless voco service. Located on the hip Left Bank of the River Seine, in the heart of Paris, the sustainability-focused hotel is just a five-minute walk from Montparnasse railway station, for buses straight to Orly or Paris-Charles de Gaulle airports.

All voco hotels promote sustainability to help guests sleep easier with thoughtful comforts, such as cosy bedding made from 100 per cent recycled materials, Korres amenities in large size dispenser bottles and aerated shower heads to reduce water usage. voco hotels also remove an average of 300 plastic bottles in every guest room per year by instead using micro-filtered water.

Head of voco – EMEAA, IHG, Will Yell declared: “Since we launched voco two years ago, we’ve seen fantastic growth all around the world and it’s so exciting to open our first hotel in France, with three more voco hotels in the pipeline for this market. voco Paris Montparnasse will be a great example of the brand, blending voco’ s unique characteristics with the spirit of the French capital.

“Being part of the voco family doesn’t mean becoming one of the same. Whether it’s a newly built property or a well-known hotel with plenty of history, we foster and celebrate all the individual spirit and elements that make a hotel successful,” he concluded.
