Autograph Collection today adds a third French property to its collection of 24 strikingly independent hotels in Europe, the Boscolo Exedra Nice.
The hotel, originally designed by renowned architect Charles Dalmas, is situated on the Riviera and has been fully restored, replicating the beauty of its former glory years in 1913 and the iconic Belle Époque style of the time.
The recent renovations have been crafted by internationally renowned architects and designers; among them Maurizio Papiri, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Sergio Minorello and Simone Micheli.
The lobby is steeped in old-world grandeur and contemporary style with marble columns and hints of sweeping glass that echo early 20th century style.
The theme throughout is neutral, with pastel hues in white and cream inspiring a serene and tranquil atmosphere.
The 112 rooms include a Presidential Suite, an Executive Suite and a Boscolo Duplex Suite along with six Junior Suites looking out over the lively Boulevard Victor Hugo.
All rooms feature a combination of marble and pale parquet flooring, gilding details, furnishings draped in crisp white linens and fragrant fresh flowers.
Designed to offer guests a spacious sojourn in the city, some rooms even feature modular systems that allow the room space to increase to surface areas of up to 130m2.
For those seeking respite from the heat of the city, Boscolo Exedra Nice has just the ticket with 500m2 of exclusive wellness space designed by Simone Micheli.
The sleek, modern area features a fitness room, a wet area with a sauna, a Turkish bath and Vichy showers and a team room all set around an indoor swimming pool.
At its centre, a feature tree sculpture delivers powerful waterjets from its branches, offering guests a unique and invigorating in-pool massage experience.
Within the high-tech treatment rooms, expert therapists perform a variety of face and body treatments with high quality products such as Algotherm marine cosmetics.
The vision behind the Autograph Collection is to offer an evolving group of passionately independent hotel experiences ranging from a 15-room boutique hunting lodge in the mountains of Colorado to a 19th century neoclassical palace in the majestic city of Prague.
Exactly like nothing else, each hotel is thoughtfully chosen for its quality, originality, bold character and capacity to offer today’s modern traveller a range of unique experiences suited to their individual sense of style and adventure.
While still relatively new, the distinct portfolio has proven to be a highly successful venture due to its discerning selection process and unique ability to create memories through enriching travel experiences.
