It will be the icing on the cake of the future international city of gastronomy and wine. The Sainte-Anne Hôtel Dijon, whose first stone was laid on September 24, must embody the city’s ambitions for its center dedicated to the French art of living. Some 38 million euros will be invested to renovate the old Sainte-Anne hospice, financed through a public-private partnership involving the Banque des Territoires, Naos Hôtel Groupe, the Caisse d’Epargne Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and the Crédit Agricole Champagne Bourgogne .
In total, the four-star Hilton franchise hotel will have some 125 upscale rooms over 7,500 m2. A bistronomic restaurant, La table de Sainte-Anne, a spa, as well as spaces dedicated to business meetings are also planned. “We target an international clientele thanks to the hotel part, but also a local clientele thanks to the catering and spa offer”, detailed François Mary, general manager of operations at Naos Hôtel Groupe, during the symbolic launch of the project. .
40,000 overnight stays
In total, the hotel should generate the creation of 80 jobs and generate around 40,000 additional overnight stays for the city. With the international city of gastronomy, Dijon has between 800,000 and one million visitors each year. To accommodate them, more than 640 rooms must see the light of day by 2023, which will be added to the “3,980 already existing”, underlined François Rebsamen, president of Dijon Métropole. According to the city council, “Dijon already ranks eighth in France in terms of tourist attendance.” The opening of the Saint-Anne Dijon Curio by Hilton is scheduled for March 2023.
