Radisson Blu Hotel, Nantes



The Radisson Blu Nantes is located inside the beautifully renovated former Palais de Justice (or courthouse), which was disused for many years after Jean Nouvel created a new building on the île de Nantes. This 4-star hotel, situated in the heart of the city on Aristide Briand square, offers sumptuous comfort along with easy access to tourist attractions and shops.

The renovation of the former Palais de Justice has preserved the building’s striking neoclassical structure while adding a contemporary twist. The interior designers, including the acclaimed Jean-Philippe Nuel and the DTACC architects agency, drew on the expertise of the Compagnons du Tour de France when redesigning the prestigious building. The spacious interior boasts optimum natural light levels and ample room for guests. The former entrance hall has been converted into a lobby complete a bar and numerous sofas, the ideal space for relaxing and socializing. The former courtroom is now a restaurant open to guests and the public. The restaurant’s wine cellar occupies the former seat of the trial judge, alluding to the previous activity of the spot!

Redesigned by a team of experts, the hotel is managed by accomplished professionals with great ambitions. The former court is home to a contemporary art space, with cultural events and exhibitions planned to take place within the hotel. Fréderic Laval, Executive Chef of the L’Assise Restaurant, intends to utilize the rich local produce and combine French cuisine with Far Eastern flavors.

The Radisson Blu Hotel caters to a diverse and sophisticated clientele, comprised of tourists and business travelers. There are 7 meeting rooms as well as Business Class rooms to meet corporate needs.
