Suresnes (French pronunciation: [sy.ʁɛn]) is a commune in the western suburbs of Paris, France. It is located in Hauts-de-Seine, 9.3 km (5.8 mi) from the centre of Paris and had a population of 45,039 in 2006. The nearest communes are Neuilly-sur-Seine, Puteaux, Rueil-Malmaison, Saint-Cloud and Boulogne-Billancourt. It is also on the Île-de-France tramway Line 2 giving access to La Defense and its rail services. The Foch Hospital is located in the city.
In 1974 the Spanish Socialist Workers Party held its 26th Congress in Suresnes (it was illegal in Spain under Franco). Felipe González was elected Secretary General, replacing Rodolfo Llopis Ferrándiz. González was from the "reform" wing of the party, and his victory signaled a defeat for the historic and veteran wing of the Party. The direction of the party shifted from the exiles to the young people in Spain who had not fought in the Spanish Civil War.
