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
  • In honor of it’s 100th anniversary, the hotel has a host of special events planned; check in advance to see what’s on offer

Unapologetic Riviera glamour stars at this storied, 100-year-old Belle Époque beach hotel

The Lowdown

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.

Amazing Hotel and Impeccable service
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed a few days at the Carlton, we had an amazing time both at the hotel and in Cannes. The service at the Carlton is beyond amazing, staff were friendly and professional. We’ve stayed at many five star hotels but the Carlton is somewhat special. Breakfast was great, many options to choose from. Hotel location was superb, within walking distance to many tourist attractions and private beach just outside the hotel. Although if you’d like a beach lounger you’d have to pay extra. It would be great if your staying for a few days to have one day complimentary for the beach loungers as an extra incentive. Apart from that, I really can’t think of anything negative. All very positive, money worth spending for the level of service they provide at a beautiful and historic hotel. Well done Carlton team! Hope to see you again soon.

Glamour from the past great eat view and fantastic view. We stayed just one night in this fabulous hotel and the overall experience was fantastic. The service is a real 5 star service and the hotel in general is superd. Near to the beach most of the roooms have great sea view and they are big enought ( at least the one we had ) Breakfast was again very good . Quite expensive hotel but worths every euro you spent

A expensive 4 star hotel

The hotel is ok, but It is not unforgettable.
I went to a classic room,classic means”small” apparently in France.
I ve got a very good price, but I believe there are better options for the same money
Breakfast is great and personnel fantastic, very well located,but no more than this.
Air conditioning is not powerful,internet is slow
It is not bad,but a little bit disappointing for me.

Great Beach

The Hotel is absolutely beautiful! At the private Beach you Can rent comfortable chairs. Its close to town so Shopping opportunities are great. Right now one side of the hotel is being renovated so in some rooms you hear loud noises. But otherwise it's amazing.

Grand hotel
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We spent two nights here in room 233 with a lovely sea view overlooking the bay above the entrance to the hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly and professional. The room was well equipped although the separate WC was very small/tight. Breakfast was excellent with an extensive choice and a choice of indoor or outdoor tables. The hotel restaurant was also excellent. A private sandy beach is across the road but there is no hotel pool.
