Official opening of two new Pullman and ibis Styles hotels in the heart of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport
On 6 April 2016, Foncière des Régions and Crédit Agricole Assurances, together with AccorHotels, the world's leading hotel operator, opened two new 3 and 4-star hotels in the heart of the Roissy air transport hub.
Present at the opening were Joël Sonnes – Manager of the Pullman Paris Roissy CDG Airport hotel, Damien Raphanel – Manager of the ibis Styles Paris CDG Airport Roissy hotel, Sophie Etchandy-Stabile – CEO of HotelServices AccorHotels France, Emeric Servin – Senior Advisor Real Estate at Crédit Agricole Assurances and Dominique Ozanne – CEO Hotels & Hospitality Management at Foncière des Régions and Chairman of FDM Management.
In 2014, Foncière des Régions (for both hotels) and Crédit Agricole Assurances, (for the ibis Styles Paris Roissy CDG Airport hotel) acquired this off-plan project from Eiffage. The Pullman Paris Roissy CDG Airport hotel is operated under a management agreement signed by AccorHotels and Foncière des Régions for a 20 year term. The ibis Styles Paris CDG Airport Roissy hotel is subject to a 12-year lease agreement, signed among the partners, under a joint investment with Crédit Agricole Assurances.
This major hotel project, delivered in November 2015 and designed by Arte Charpentier Architectes, includes more than 600 rooms spread across 27,300 m².
"With this new transaction, Foncière des Régions is strengthening its long-term partnership with AccorHotels, reaffirming its position as the European leader in hotel real estate. We have invested nearly €780 million in this market during 2015 and intend to continue in this direction through 2016, thanks to our unique range of expertise, which includes turnkey developments, sale and leaseback transactions, leases and management agreements," emphasised Dominique Ozanne, CEO Hotels & Hospitality Management at Foncière des Régions and Chairman of FDM Management.
"For Credit Agricole Assurances, a long-term investor, these two hotels exemplify the pursuit of its real estate investment diversification strategy, particularly in an asset class offering an attractive and secure risk/return ratio with key partners, each an expert in their respective fields," explained Emeric Servin, Senior Advisor Real Estate at Crédit Agricole Assurances.

The hotel complex enjoys an exceptional location at the centre of the airport. It is located only 50 m from the RER B train station with direct pedestrian access. Pedestrians also have easy access to all airport terminals and the TGV station, just minutes away via the CDGVAL automatic shuttle.
Both hotels, connected to the area's energy grid (heating, cooling, electricity) to achieve optimised and environmentally-responsible pooling of energy consumption, received the HQE "Very Good"
certification and the BBC-effinergie label.
