InterContinental Carlton Cannes is located on the beach in Cannes, close to La Croisette, Palace of Festivals and Congress Hall, and Cannes Harbour. Other points of interest near this luxury hotel include Forville Provencal Food Market and Cannes City Hall.
We visited for cocktails with our French friends who live in Nice. I've read a few books with a lot of references set around this hotel so I was very excited to visit. It didn't disappoint! We were treated very well and the cocktails were superb! Looking forward to my next visit in the Summer!
"The best hotel on the Riviera"
We enjoyed yet another wonderful stay at the iconic Carlton hotel this New Year's holiday in Cannes This time we upgraded for NYEve to a seaview room and were given a generous and wonderful upgrade to that room for our whole stay, including one very cheap night and one on points. Thank you Carlton! To be seafront made it up to another level again. The opulence of the French doors opening out onto that classic view of the Croisette was stunning. It made it hard to ever go out as we sat sipping coffee by our wonderful view for hours. We didn't feel this hotel needed any renovation work. It is a classic style so don't expect all glass and metal, instead you get wonderful classic French styling. The seafront rooms are all enormous too which was great, with a huge four piece bathroom too. As ever best of all were the staff, especially Reception, the meticulous Housekeeping services, and the Breakfast staff. They were even wonderful despite the entire hotel arriving bleary eyed for a late breakfast on New Year's Day ! The food and drink at breakfast was stunning We cannot wait to return again. thank you for a wonderful Bonne Annee Carlton
"Elegant but need a renovation"
Beautiful and Elegant property in a perfect location. Great service at the Front Desk. The hotel needs a major renovation as it is outdated. We arrived from Nice airport and took a Uber which cost 60 euros.
"A classic, whether you like it or not"
I would easily agree with other reviews that suggest Carlton Rooms need renovation. However, I would say that this does not come first when you have such a building, such a decoration, such a location, such big rooms, such breakfast and such service. I really enjoyed my stay and highly recommend it even if the rooms stay unchanged. Especially if you can go off season, then value for money is top.
"Empress of the French Riviera"
Carlton Cannes is definitely the best hotel at Cannes. Exceptionally located and welcoming guests for over a century. Our stay at the hotel was very comfortable. They were too kind upgrade us to a large suite which was very roomy. The 2 bathrooms were extremely convenient. As this is a heritage building it definitely requires refurbishment as rooms are made in the old format, although very grand. But this fact was overshadowed with the exceptional overall service we received. The housekeeping was absolutely superb, we always found our room to be spic and span on our return in the evenings. By far the best service I have seen around Europe. The breakfast was also very good with energetic staff and great service. Also the Front Desk was always more than helpful with an experienced Concierge and efficient billing/cash desk. Contrary to some adverse comments, about room size etc, I thought it was a great experience to stay at an old style luxury hotel. I would love to stay here again next December in 2017 - I found teh hospitality awesome.
