Edgar Suites reveals his strategies for next year’s Olympic Games to be held in the French capital
The Paris 2024 Olympic Games is undoubtedly the most anticipated event to come. The French sports and tourism sector is impatient, as the event is expected to attract hundreds of sports professionals and thousands of tourists from all over the world.
Grégoire Benoit Co-founder of Edgar Suites in France assured One IN Magazine that the recovery of tourism in Europe is an indisputable reality, in addition to leaving behind the restrictions due to the pandemic, in countries with a great history such as France we see a very positive return of international mobility.
While in the past, tourists came to Paris only to see the beautiful Eiffel Tower, “love is no longer the only reason to visit the city, but also the immensity of cultural activities, the upcoming reopening of the Notre Dame Cathedral and the celebration of the 2024 Summer Olympics,” he said.
“Looking ahead to the arrival of the 2024 Olympic Games, we want to be sure to be prepared for the reception of all players and fans,” Benoit said. “Our suites are ideal for this type of event, as they are highly rated in professional profiles and people traveling in groups and family,” he detailed.
For this year, the company has launched the construction of more suites in other strategic sites in the country, in cities such as Lille (north) or Cannes (south).
“We have many expectations, in the medium term, our goal is to be present in the 10 most important French cities,” he explained that so far, Edgar Suites has around 200 buildings throughout the country, especially in Paris, but we also have constructions in cities such as Bordeaux.
Edgar Suites was created from the desire of three entrepreneurs to revisit the scheme of the hotel residence and the private rental apartment and take the best of both. The project, which was born a little over 5 years ago, has become the new concept of luxury accommodation that seeks to give another type of experience to tourists from all over the world.
The floors and buildings that make up the brand, spaces that were uninhabited and have been refurbished into high standard suites, with all the amenities for travelers looking for more than just a conventional stay.
As its founder explains, the idea of “urban recycling” arises from the great demand for work in our country, especially in Paris, where there were many homes or offices, but little by little – as a result of the new hybrid employment modalities – these have been vacated or abandoned. This has increased even more with the arrival of the pandemic and the subsequent rise of teleworking.
All accommodations are centrally located, strategic and surrounded by all amenities such as restaurants and stores. Its founders have called these works as “urban recycling”, since in addition to giving a second life to the buildings, they have implemented it with recycled items.
Likewise, Edgar Suites develops its sustainable bet in other branches of development in order to promote eco-conception. From the design to the operation of their hotel residences.
When rehabilitating offices or hotels at the end of their cycle, they ensure the improvement of the environmental performance of the spaces through eco-design (BREAM certification). They use environmentally friendly materials and resources, and we collaborate with platforms that provide us with second-hand goods.
They leave aside the use of plastics, each suite has a “kit” gift for travelers to use recyclable bags. Likewise, the rooms have accessories that can be washed and reused, while the amenities are sourced from ecological and local brands.
