The Review

Opened in 1929, Hotel Martinez is today an immaculately restored art deco gem reflecting the Belle Epoque at its peak. Ideally situated on the prestigious La Croisette seaside promenade, it’s at the heart of this cosmopolitan and flamboyant French Riviera city.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/907/prop-98289-1350670773-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”Large French beds take center stage in the rooms. Prestige Sea View Rooms overlook the Med.”}The Martinez exudes quality and intimacy and a uniquely chic vibe, offering faultless service and keen attention to detail. Most of the 409 rooms and suites have views over the city and surrounding countryside or of the sea. The guestrooms and suites feature art deco decor, rich paneling, large French beds, marble bathrooms and flat-screen TVs.

The three restaurants on-site include the two-Michelin-starred La Palme d’Or, which looks out at the water and is helmed by executive chef Christian Sinicropi, who changes the French menu seasonally. Sinicropi also designed the menu at Le Relais, which features lighter fare in a terrace setting. And in the summer guests can enjoy roast meat and fish, freshly squeezed juice and more under the parasols at the Zplage Beach Restaurant. The Martinez also features a popular piano bar.

For health services, guests head to the hotel’s top floor and the exclusive L.RAPHAEL Beauty Spa. After a day spent in the notorious Riviera sun, they can receive treatments designed by solar skin care specialists. On the same floor there is a fitness center with the latest machines.

Back outside, the Martinez is a short stroll from the trendiest bars and finest restaurants and shops in Cannes. But there are plenty of diversions worth getting out of Cannes for, as well, including visits to the historic towns of Biot, Grasse and Vence, plus the spectacular Gorges du Loup, a deep, narrow valley surrounded by moss-covered cliffs. All are just a short drive away.

Martinez has become a habit now!

This October was my 5th in a row stay at this hotel. It has now been long changed and things only show an upward graph. I had dinner at the restaurant below for the first time and it was simply marvelous. The staff is new and much warmer than ever before. I don't foresee big changes every year now....a rating of 4 is what I am giving for several years to come.

Very good

This is one of my favorite hotels. Really good staff. Great location on the famous street La Croisette. Very good conditions of stay. I recommend to stay there. You know that Canne is known with the film festival and this is opportunity the feel like it.
