With over 2,300 square meters of meeting space including ten flexible venues and one state-of-the-art ballroom, guests and event-planners will choose from a plethora of sought-after venues for social or business gatherings. The names of the meeting rooms represent the grand voyage of the Luxor Obelisk (1832-1836) from the temple of Luxor in Egypt to its arrival in the Place de Concorde in Paris. Special occasions will be held under the stars in the L’Obelisque ballroom where the ceiling is adorned with Swarovski crystal chandeliers in the shape of a star constellation. Two green meeting rooms (Paris and Alexandria) offer electronic flipcharts and amenities made from eco-friendly materials.
