InterContinental Carlton Cannes
What We Love
- Seeing and being seen strolling along the hotel’s posh private beach, which is lined with cream-colored sun loungers
- The rooms, some of which offer opulent sea views and décor that recalls Old Hollywood
- Suite 623 is known as the Hitchcock suite, after it appeared in the director’s 1955 film To Catch a Thief, set at the hotel
What To Know
- The heart of the Riviera is a magnet for the mega-rich; even a simple club sandwich at the beach cafe is priced accordingly

Built in 1913 as the no-holds-barred Carlton Hotel, the property is over the top in every way. So much so that in the ensuing years, Russia’s Grand Duke Michael and his aristocratic friends made it one of the most fashionable spots on the Cote D’Azur. And that’s not all. Grace Kelly and Cary Grant filmed To Catch a Thief here, and plenty of A-listers have followed in their wake. Today the grand dame of Cannes has 343 rooms, and its public spaces are just the place for a bit of summer peacocking.
In the Area
The InterContinental Carlton Cannes occupies a prime place on La Croisette beach. If guests tire of preening and shopping, they can arrange a boat ride to the stunning and peaceful Iles de Lerins to take the plunge and bask in the turquoise waters of the Med. Or visit Le Suquet, the quainter old town of Cannes that’s crisscrossed by steep stone staircases and seems lightyears away from the slick beach set; only the daring can wear stilettos.
How to Get There
Everything in this hotel is just more than perfect really very luxurious staff were very nice friendly and helpful I enjoyed the beach activities and enjoyed the outdoor breakfast it was really excellent
After having walked out of the hotel we had booked because we were totally dissatisfied, we drove to the Inter Continental Carlton Hotel in Cannes and asked if they had any rooms available for the week. We told them that we had not booked and came on the off chance. The staff were ultra helpful, polite and kind. We asked for the lowest cost of room that they had available and upgraded us straight away for the same price as the lower cost, to a room on the sixth floor with a balcony. The room was a delight with two double door French windows opening to the balcony, huge amount of space and a very large bathroom. We were there for a week and could not have been happier with the service and attention to detail that we were shown.
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights off season. Disappointing as the whole beach front was under construction so had to deal with noises all day and had terrible views from the room.
The service was superb and staff is super lovely and helpful but the hotel stay was not worth it. Expensive breakfast was not that great and rooms where very outdated.
- double bed was two single beds pulled together with huge gap in the middle and frame rattles every time you get on the bed
- shower is small
- tv is tiny and very far away from the bed
Unfortunately would not return.
