Once again, the blatant incoherence between the renovated rooms (on the 'executive' floor), and the (somewhat outmoded) standard rooms, is striking.
Indeed, in 2008, the top floor (where the 'executive' rooms are to be found) was entirely renovated in a contemporary and stylish Zen style. Even though this hotel tends to be presented as a hotel best suited to a couples, it is also perfectly adapted to families, with its numerous adjoining rooms.
In the 'executive' style, the available categories, for now, are double rooms, suites and apartments with a kitchen area. The term 'executive' is simply applied to every room which has been renovated. Their accomplished new style comes in dark shades, with details highlighting the choice of modernity: an espresso machine, a bathroom fitted with a designer wash basin confirming the increased effort made on these rooms, and a flat-screen swivel television which can be turned to face you, whichever way you are lying on the bed...
We liked the designer elements of the executive guest rooms. What a shame, though, that these are not yet present in the majority of the hotel.
Although we obviously preferred the executive rooms, with their dark furniture and modern colours, we have to admit that the standard rooms were a good comfortable size: between 34 and 40 m² (which is a luxury in Cannes). Amenities are not of a very high quality, though, and the bathrooms, which have not yet been renovated, are depressing, if only because of their tiling. Finally, most rooms have a balcony. Some even have a small terrace, which are great, because they look out to the back of the building, namely to the small pool and the garden, and are therefore very quiet.
