Crowne Plaza® Paris – République Makes U.S. Television Debut; InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts and Hotel Indigo® Welcome Cast and Crew on Location in Paris

IHG® Hotels & Resorts (IHG®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, recently hosted the hit television show “Modern Family” in the “City of Love” while filming on-location in Paris for the show’s farewell season. 

Crowne Plaza® Paris – République, a global flagship hotel showcasing a host of distinctive brand features, served as a key filming location for the special Valentine’s Day episode, entitled “Paris,” which included scenes with many of the series’ principal characters. 

Filming locations at Crowne Plaza Paris – République included the façade of the hotel exterior, the reception desk and the courtyard terrace, as well as the brand’s new signature Plaza Workspace – collection of modern spaces for work, collaboration and celebration. The episode will air in the U.S. and Canada on Wednesday, Feb. 12, and can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu. Check local listings for details on timing and channel information. It will air in additional global markets later in 2020.

Claire Bennett, Global Chief Marketing Officer, IHG, said: “It’s hard to believe we’re saying ‘good-bye’ to one of my favorite television families! Hosting and filming with the Modern Family team in Paris was unforgettable for us. This celebrity filled final season will also be unforgettable for Modern Family fans around the world – which is why it was such a great opportunity for IHG Hotels & Resorts to get involved. From hosting the cast and crew, to filming at one of our flagship Crowne Plaza hotels, we were thrilled to welcome the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan to our IHG family of hotels.” 


In addition to Crowne Plaza Paris – République, cast and crew were guests at InterContinental® Le Grand – Paris and Hotel Indigo® Paris – Opera
