Carlton Cannes

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

The Carlton Cannes, a symbol of Belle Époque glamour, is situated along the famous La Croisette in Cannes, France. A protected historical monument and the world’s most photographed hotel, the Carlton Cannes emerged from an extensive restoration in 2023, overseen by interior designer Tristan Auer and architect Richard Lavelle, reaffirming its status as a luxurious beach destination. Its instantly recognisable cream-coloured façade and twin domes, inspired by the Spanish Greek courtesan La Belle Otero, have welcomed countless A-list celebrities and become synonymous with the Cannes Film Festival.

What are the rooms like?

The Carlton Cannes offers 332 rooms and suites, including 72 boasting breathtaking sea views. Each room features French windows opening onto wrought-iron balconies, cream-coloured love seats in alcoves and a white-on-white palette designed to highlight the ever-changing Mediterranean light. The hotel’s renowned suites, named after famous celebrities like Alfred Hitchcock and Grace Kelly, are on the sixth and seventh floors. The showstopper is room 130, whose terrace sits atop the hotel’s arched porch entranceway, offering unparalleled views.
