About us
Le Vendôme was founded in 1964 by La Societe Hoteliere Fakhoury. Since then, the hotel's distinctive decor, superb location and outstanding service secured its reputation as one of the world's finest destination hotels, as well as being one of only a few of the InterContinental Group's designated boutique hotels. In 1974 the hotel became the responsibility of La Societe Des Grands Hotels Du Liban, who had to cease operations in 1983 due to Lebanon's civil strife. A decade later, with the arrival of peace, several million dollars were invested in renovation and restoration, reviving this landmark legend to its former glory. In 1995 InterContinental Hotels and Resorts took on the management, and reopened its doors in November 1996. Le Vendôme today has 73 rooms and suites equipped with the latest technology, gourmet restaurants and a 24-hour destination bar. Guests today at Le Vendôme Beirut experience life at the highest level of luxury in one of the world's most special cities. With world-class dining and entertainment, and interiors inspired by French chateaux, the hotel is synonymous with elegance. Le Vendôme Beirut combines its location's culture and history with exceptional service and impeccable attention to detail.
