With France’s famed wine-growing region as a backdrop, the recently opened InterContinental Bordeaux—Le Grand Hotel pays homage to its posh predecessor, the Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux & Spa, while establishing a new benchmark for hospitality in its namesake city.

And to complement any meal, the hotel’s Wine Concierge Service provides selections from vintners and vintages usually unavailable to the public.
Four Seasons Hotel George V has announced that after just one year as Executive Chef at Le Cinq, Christian Le Squer has been awarded a third Michelin star in the 2016 Michelin Guide.
