Hyatt has welcomed the reopening of Hôtel Martinez, Cannes, as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, following major renovations and a complete redesign.
Located on Boulevard de la Croisette, the 409-room hotel is one of the most recognisable hotels on the French Riviera, rich in culture and history.
As part of a collection of unique and independent properties, this iconic landmark from the 1930s has played host to some of the world’s most distinguished guests, offering the perfect location to enjoy Cannes, including the Palais des Festivals.
Every aspect of the hotel-wide redesign pays tribute to its illustrious past while setting it up for the future.
Parisian architect Pierre-Yves Rochon has combined the hotel’s original Art Deco style, with contemporary, chic design that takes inspiration from the colours of the French Riviera and the Mediterranean way of life.
New features include Version Originale, a restaurant serving authentic regional dishes with a creative twist, Le Martinez Bar offering a festive and glamorous atmosphere and Le Jardin du Martinez, an alfresco dining terrace with a Mediterranean garden setting.
These join La Palme d’Or, the two Michelin-starred restaurant by chef Christian Sinicropi.
“We are thrilled to re-open Hôtel Martinez as part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt and delivering story-worthy experiences for the modern traveller,” said Alessandro Cresta, general manager of Hôtel Martinez.
“The renovations have given new life to the iconic building while preserving its historic charm, and we are excited to unveil these ahead of the Cannes Film Festival.
“We look forward to welcoming guests old and new to experience the relaxed, yet glamourous atmosphere that has become synonymous with the French Riviera.”
Hôtel Martinez is the second property in France in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, joining Hôtel du Louvre in Paris, which is currently closed for renovation.
Together they represent a significant milestone for the brand in France and Europe.
The hotel has 409 newly renovated Art Deco rooms and suites overlooking the city of Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea.
The contemporary interior design by Pierre-Yves Rochon reflects the 1930s with each room featuring white lacquer furnishings and subtle touches of sky blue or light yellow creating a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
The exclusive Suite des Oliviers and the Penthouse Suite offer one of Europe’s largest private terraces overlooking the sea and the Promenade de la Croisette.
