Amy Adejokun Section editor

This was the first hotel to be built on the Croisette back in the 1960's. These days, the Grand Hôtel Cannes not only continues to offer luxurious 5 star accommodation, it has also kept its original interior design. If this matches your tastes, you will be in 7th heaven, because the hotel could almost classify as a museum of 1960's decorative arts, as well as offering services to match its lofty category.

    Location 8.79 /10

    As far as location is concerned, you could hardly improve the placement of this 5 star establishment. On the Croisette, it overlooks the sea and has unobstructed views of the beach. Rue d'Antibes, the main shopping street in Cannes, is a few metres behind the hotel, and is full of shops and restaurants.
    The Palais des Festivals and the historical district of Suquet are both just a few hundred metres away.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The Grand Hôtel has 75 guest rooms and is one of the flagship establishments of the Croisette. If you are a fan of 1960's-based styles, you will think you have arrived in heaven.
    Whether you are in a superior room, a Junior Suite, a Prestige room, an Executive Jacuzzi, the Penthouse Suite, or the Penthouse Executive Jacuzzi, every last detail in the decor has carefully been seen to.
    The Prestige rooms measure a generous 25m², and are further augmented by the 15m² of terrace overlooking the rapidly rising slopes of Cannes. The 1960's style of the decor is apparent, but is more discreet than in the communal spaces and corridors (beige and brown carpeting, dark brown walls, and an orange ceiling). What really ties the rooms in with the decor in the rest of the hotel is the furniture.
    The shades of beige that feature most strongly in the rooms give them a subdued brightness that nicely sets off the pink bedsheets, headboard, and curtains. The patterning on the beige carpet is echoed in the design of the duvet. The furniture, too, has been very carefully selected: a long Formica desk, a chrome coffee table, a chrome and leather stool, etc.
    The flat-screen television blends in perfectly with all these pieces of 1960's furniture because of its similar shape to the mirrors around it.
    In the bathrooms, the 1960's style gives way to the sophistication of grey marble. Nothing could be more classic. All of the bathrooms have a towel dryer, a hair-dryer, Bulgari hospitality products, bathrobes, a bathtub, and a separate toilet. Finally, every room has a safe (concealed in the wardrobe) and a minibar.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Dig out your flares, don a big-collared shirt, and let your sideburns grow out, because entering the Grand Hôtel is like being sent straight back to the 1960's.
    Built in 1960, the Grand Hôtel is the oldest hotel on the Croisette and it was in keeping with the style of this year that the renovations in 2006 took place. The design of the place is typical from that time: the hotel building is a large 11 storey block whose balconies form little compartments in the façade. It isn't exactly ugly, but it's not especially easy on the eye either. Luckily, the green space dotted with palm trees that separates the building from the pavement gives a more pleasant and summery feel to this impressive ocean liner of a building.
    Indeed, as soon as you enter the lobby, the size of the spaces and the pale colour of the omnipresent marble make it feel as though you are on the set of The Love Boat! The marble, combined with the brown shades of the cavernous lobby, lacks warmth, and the chrome in the designer furniture chosen to adorn the place does little to brighten it up.
    The lounges and the bar, 'Le Cercle', which are located to either side of the lobby, are also like a blast from the past. With armchairs made of smooth brown velvet, an iron lamp and table, and the brown and orange rug with geometric patterns, fans and collectors will feel like they have entered a museum full of artefacts from that decade. It seems the hotel's interior decorator was able to bring together the shapes, colours, and patterns of most of the design masterpieces of that time.
    Needless to say, this style of decor can be seen pretty much throughout the hotel. The only part of the establishment that appears to have escaped the time machine is the terrace of the restaurant, Le Park 45, whose outdoor furniture is unsettlingly understated compared to the rest of the hotel.
    Another pocket of resistance can be found in the meeting room, which is in a building next to the car park. This space is decorated entirely in white and can be divided into 3 sections holding up to 100 people. It is provided with all the necessary equipment (overhead projector and screen and a Wi-Fi connection).

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    Le Park 45, the Grand Hôtel Cannes' restaurant, is overseen by chef Sébastien Broda, who previously won a Michelin star at the Jarrier à Biot. The cuisine features local products that have been incorporated into Mediterranean-influenced dishes. Merely reading the menu is a mouthwatering experience: large Provencal asparagus, smoked salmon and Ossetra caviar, scrambled egg and lemon froth served cold; Foie gras of Chalosse duck, ginger marmalade, toast; Large filet of wild turbot roasted in olive oil, new green beans, passion fruit flowers, ginger curry, and granny smith apple condiments, gravy; French suckling lamb roasted with fresh garlic, Provencal artichokes, zucchini, spicy sausage gravy, chocolate tapas on a kumquat madeleine biscuit, 'petit-suisse' cream cheese mousse with candied cherry tomatoes, etc. All of these dishes are served in a setting that brings together the spirit of the 60's and classic, contemporary furniture. The terrace is quite the agreeable place during fine weather, and the bar, 'Le Cercle', is also very pleasant. Opening at 11:00am, you can enjoy a selection of cocktails and light meals in a jazzy ambience.
    Open from April to October, you will find seafood and local specialities at the beach restaurant, 'La Plage 45'.

      The Hôtel De Provence is slightly set back from the city centre and offers two major advantages, namely a small but very pleasant garden and the fact that it has just been renovated. The hotel is very clean and bright with some charming communal areas. The more neutral guest rooms are ideal for conference-goers looking for a basic level of comfort and some peace and quiet in Cannes.

      This little city hotel certainly doesn't look the most impressive but its strength lies in its location at the heart of the city and in the warm welcome extended by the owner. The hotel, as its name suggests, is perfect for those attending conferences in the area and the most festive of festival-goers. If it's charm and style you're looking for when it comes to choosing a hotel in Cannes, however, then this is probably not the place for you.

      This establishment will make you forget all you thought you knew about residence hotels. Gone are the nondescript interiors, kitsch decors, and cheap and ugly furniture, and gone are the tiny rooms with their bunk-beds. Here, everything is modern, simple and comfortable. It's the perfect place for families.

      Facing the port, the Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel is a modern and classy establishment that welcomes rather well-off guests from all over the world. The decor is reason enough to book a room here, even if it's only for one night. However, if you want to fully enjoy this atmosphere filled with decorative creativity, try to avoid the classic rooms.

      Some films are great and others dreadful, and the same goes for hotels. The Renoir belongs to the former category. There is a slight nod towards the glamour of the silver screen, handled with intelligence and sophistication, much in the same way as everything else in this hotel.
      When refinement and charm are top the bill, the only thing you have to fear as a guest - or an audience member - is the sound of the clapperboard announcing the end of your stay.
