"Two words sum up this grandest of Parisian hotels: Opera and Empire.
Its history is intertwined with that of the Opera Garnier next door. Both buildings were commissioned by Napoleon III in the days of the Second Empire and both are characterised by the same rich red and gold flavour. At the Grand Hotel Intercontinental, the legacy of opera is overwhelming, from the magnificence of the Salon Opera to the bust of Sarah Bernhardt that greets you in the lobby."
