Mixing business with pleasure in Bordeaux

TEXT: KATIE TURNER | PHOTOS © GOLDEN TULIP FOR ALL FIVE

Bordeaux’s central business district has recently been radically transformed and at its heart is a bold new addition: the Golden Tulip Euratlantique. The hotel’s mission statement is ‘Playtime, Anytime’- and that means even when you’re working. The aim is to take some of the pressure out of that business trip you’re on.

Logistics really couldn’t be simpler: the Golden Tulip Euratlantique is seconds on foot from Bordeaux’s main St Jean station, which means you can be in the heart of Paris in a little over two hours on the TGV.

There are 111 modern and spacious rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and mini fridges. In terms of the food, in a region famous for its wines you’d expect the food to be good too and so it is. Food is locally-sourced and seasonal. The restaurant has a terrace to soak up some sun when the weather allows, while inside there’s a relaxing lounge area. Whether you want to be alone or meet up with others, they’ve got it covered.

The hotel is also working hard to appeal to a new generation of business travellers; their aim is to make things less formal and time-consuming. Guests are more mobile and more savvy about the places they stay than ever before. Need to grab food on-the-go? The hotel’s food truck is a perfect pit-stop. Simply order and take away.

There’s also a large ‘Creativity Space’ for collaborative working in larger groups and a co-working area, which is the perfect spot for a bit of networking. You’re likewise unlikely to find better facilities in the area for staff away days or training.

The idea is simple: a way to make doing business in Bordeaux a pleasure.
