Made famous as a filming location for Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief in the 1950s, The InterContinental Carlton is one the most prestigious hotels situated along Cannes’ sweeping waterfront Croisette. It was built 40 years earlier for Henry Ruhl, a Swiss hotelier, and designed by architects Charles Dalmas and Marcellin Mayère. As host to film stars who flock to Cannes for its annual Film Festival, you can virtually feel the VIP atmosphere oozing from the walls as you enter the hotel, whose 343 luxury rooms offer the height of stately comfort, many boasting balconies with captivating views across the Mediterranean. The lobby alone is a feast of white pillars, light marble, chandeliers and soaring space; there’s a beauty and fitness center on the first floor and a private beach across the road. Service at the Bar & Terrace and Carlton Restaurant is razor sharp – and the hotel’s location is arguably the best in town, yards from the sea, the Palais des Festivals and pretty much everything else Cannes has to offer. It’s also fully accessible for disabled guests.
Enhance your stay on the Côte d'Azur with a luxurious stay at the InterContinental Carlton – you’ll leave feeling like a film star.
