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
- 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

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
My hotel room was in serious need of decoration. All signs of the beautiful french chiq that the facade of the hotel suggests are lost in the battered furniture, outmoded style and glumness of the room.
It feels like this should be on its third or fourth redecoration since this room was last taken care of. I can cope with a little work needed but this has clearly been left for far too long.
Also - a very ill-fitting and random picture of celebrities on the red carpet adorned the wall!
I stayed here one night whilst working in Cannes 0n a four day trip, the other nights were at the Martinez Hotel, but although I like old look/style things and places I didn't particularly liked this one but I'm not to say others wont! But overall, it was okay, staff great, breakfast was good with lots of variety same as other hotels, like I say, overall was okay but did not woke up well, stiff neck but cant blame that on them..
meeting an old friend during the recent Miptv in cannes we had the restaurant to ourselves at 8am.So the service was prompt and friendly.The food was fresh as was the coffee.i had eggs,fruit,breakfast tea,cereal,fresh orange juice and no noise
my colleague and i were joined by another friend we read the newspapers slowly had an attentive waitress and the most peaceful meal i have ever had in cannes.
It is very prestigious hotel but it is a little updated.
The building is very beautiful.
We did have a room with the view of the Croisette and it was very nice but the style and the details are too old.
The staff was friendly and professional
The breakfast was ok.
I will like to back when it will be reformed .
Very luxury hotel, big rooms with all the useful things inside: cofee machine, umbrella, iron and ironing board, slippers, shower and bathtub, infrared dryer in the bathroom, large wardrobe, ...
Service impeccable, both in the room and in the public spaces.
