Hotel Description

Some classic hotels are never quite the same again after a big renovation. The Métropole, however, is perhaps even more a big deal than it already was — when it started to show its age, the famed Parisian designer Jacques Garcia was commissioned for an update, and it turns out that his hyper-luxe style is the perfect match for what was already a pretty delightfully over-the-top grand hotel.

This belle-époque Italianate mansion is an alternative to the bigger palace hotels down on the waterfront, and while it’s not exactly understated or cozy, it’s got an air of discreet privacy about it. The rooms are stunningly opulent and decidedly old-fashioned — Mr. Garcia doesn’t go in for anything minimalist, preferring rich fabrics, ornate antiques and classic marble baths.

The location means the Métropole is just slightly off the beaten path, as does its status as an independent, outside the SBM conglomerate that controls the Monte-Carlo casino and many of the hotels. An excellent Riviera-style French restaurant is a must, as there’s so much competition around town; this one just happens to be helmed by a certain Joël Robuchon. Likewise any luxury hotel worth its salt needs a spa of the ESPA’s caliber — here all varieties of relaxation are possible, from purifying rituals to simple poolside cocktails. And the pool, by the way, is a stunner, surrounded by landscaped gardens and home to a fine alfresco Mediterranean restaurant by Joël Robuchon. Unique in the principality, it’s enclosed in fall and winter to allow for year-round swimming — or year-round loafing by its side, for that matter.

Please note: ESPA fitness studio will be closed for renovation from July 13 through August 9, 2015. Also note that Joël Robuchon and Yoshi restaurants will be closed for lunch service from July 13 through 31 and August 1 through 26, respectively. Odyssey restaurant will remain open for lunch and dinner service during these periods.
