Hyatt Announces the Opening of FirstName Bordeaux

Hyatt Hotels has announced the opening of FirstName Bordeaux, a lifestyle hotel joining the JdV by Hyatt collection of independent hotels.

Located in the center of the historic port city, FirstName Bordeaux is close to the Garonne River and a stone’s throw from the Quays of Bordeaux, the Water Mirror, La Cité du Vin and the Darwin Ecosystem. Other attractions include the Bordeaux vineyards and the Arcachon Bay, which are easily accessible by public transport or car.

The hotel offers 147 guestrooms and suites, offered in a range of categories: Cocoon, Canopée, Carat, Collector Suites and FirstRoom. Each guestroom is decorated with graphic frescoes by a local artist and equipped with easy-to-use technology. The hotel’s commitment to sustainability is realized in eco-friendly interiors, including wood sourced from eco-managed forests, plush carpets fashioned from discarded fishing nets, as well as charcoal in each room to purify the atmosphere.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar, Le Bada, highlights Bordeaux’s reputation as a wine region and its gastronomy. A supporter of “locavore” cuisine, consultant Chef Cédric Bechade has created a menu that celebrates regional produce, and advocates freshness and zero waste. Delicious plates are paired with a wine list that showcases the best vintages besides a selection of up-and-coming wineries from Bordeaux.

FirstName Bordeaux offers three meeting spaces. Comfortable benches and seating areas create a casual backdrop for reading, conversation and meetings. In the evenings, the spaces transform, offering a unique location for social gatherings, parties and cocktails. Speakeasy, the hotel’s secret bar can be found behind the door of a bordelaise cupboard and features furnishings designed to surprise and delight. It is an ideal place to book for a corporate event, a private party or an after-work gathering.
