THREE NEW ORIGINAL VENUES FOR EXCEPTIONAL EVENTS

A former chapel, a former courthouse, a downtown hotel with a 100% art deco style... In Nantes, you can host your event and book a room in a totally unique hotel! There is no shortage of unusual venues for your events, and they will leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Sozo Hotel: host your event or spend the night in a chapel

Featuring exposed stones in each room and minimalist decoration to showcase the beauty of the space without venturing into the austere, this charming boutique hotel located just steps from the Jardin des Plantes will surprise your guests. Built in 1887, the chapel belonged to a congregation of nuns. Deconsecrated and then renovated into a 4-star hotel, it was recently bought by a hotel group in Rennes, "Beautiful Life Hotels". With 24 rooms, including a 55 m2 suite, two meeting rooms (photo above) that can accommodate 15 and 10 people respectively, a lobby-bar in the former nave with a 17 m high ceiling, a wellness area that can be reserved for private events and premium services, your event is sure to be memorable in this intimate and restful setting. In a little nod to the hotel’s former status, on the Sozo hotel's website, a little angel tracks the movements of your mouse. The devil is in the details, as the saying goes.

Hôtel Mercure Passage Pommeraye: "family home" atmosphere and art deco style

After more than a year of renovation work, in July 2019 the Mercure Nantes Centre Passage Pommeraye Hotel unveiled a new interior in a pure Art Deco style (photo below), a subtle blend of on-trend flair and classic chic. Gold-tone wall lights, smoked and bevelled mirrors, velvet, wallpaper, deep shades and geometric patterns deliver comfort and character, creating a warm atmosphere that calls to mind a family home. The hotel doesn’t have a "restaurant", instead it’s called a "dining room". The large marble table under the glass roof and the collection of crystal decanters accentuate this table d'hôte spirit. In the two small adjoining lounges you can spend a relaxing evening, just like at home. There’s no reception desk any more, instead the staff come out to welcome you ‘home’, as if it were the most natural thing in the world. The 61 rooms in this hotel located in central Nantes will make your guests feel a bit nostalgic for bygone days. On each landing, a cat-shaped light illuminates the hall, a subtle reminder of the sleepy old tomcat that lived in every farmhouse. It’s enough to make you purr with pleasure.

Radisson Blu Hotel: a night in a hotel steeped in history

It’s hard not to be impressed by the majestic Radisson Blu Hotel in Nantes. This 4-star hotel, converted from an iconic former courthouse that delivered justice in Nantes for more than a century and a half, is unique in France. A subtle combination of old and new, the elegant decor of each space is truly impressive. Upon entering the former waiting room that serves as a lobby and restaurant, your guests can’t help but look up and admire the huge glass roof. “Wow” effect guaranteed! The original black and white chequered floor creates a contemporary yet elegant style. The dramatic colonnade and high ceiling enhance the solemn character of the space. You can host your event in L'Assise, the historic former Criminal Court, the Coursive, or one of the 9 seminar rooms (approximately 1000 m2 of space available for events). Your participants will love spending the night in this atypical place. The 142 rooms are tastefully decorated by architect Jean-Philippe Nuel, in keeping with the building's natural elegance.
