The Art Deco queen of the Croisette has seen some ups and downs throughout the decades since its 1929 opening; but today, after a thorough renovation (and a slight name change), the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hôtel Martinez is poised to recapture its place of honor along Cannes’s famed oceanfront promenade.
Many hotels less secure in their sense of historical importance trowel on the pomp and seriousness, making a show of upright and stuffy service, and encouraging the guests to dress as if for a film premiere just for an elevator ride down to the lobby bar. Not so the Martinez, which lets its grand ivory-colored facade and updated neo-Deco interiors speak for themselves. This is an impressive place in its own right, with no need for any aristocratic pretensions.
The guest rooms are elegant and contemporary, many with stunning views over the sea. Look for flat-screen televisions and tasteful Thirties-inspired furnishings in the low-key monochrome bedrooms, and Annick Goutal products in the spacious marble bathrooms. Suites are decidedly more modernist in décor, with hardwood floors and ochre or ivory color schemes, in contrast with the sunny colors of the traditional rooms.
Most famously, though, the Martinez has divided its entire top floor into just two penthouse suites, each spanning eight thousand square feet, with two bedrooms, two baths, dining rooms, saunas, and a sprawling terrace complete with jacuzzi and enough seating for a modest after-party, with a commanding view over the Croisette and the Mediterranean.
Sadly, many of us are priced out of the penthouse market; the rest of us will have to drown our sorrows in the piano bar or the two-Michelin-starred Palme d’Or restaurant. A swimming pool and private beach are the most popular leisure venues, and the Martinez is home to one of a handful of Givenchy spas in the world.
