CHIGAGO (December 6, 2017) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) today announced that Cannes’ historic Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez is set to re-open in spring 2018 as Hotel Martinez and will join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, a global collection of unique and independent stay experiences.
Hotel Martinez will be the second hotel in Europe to join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, which launched in 2016. It will join Hotel du Louvre in Paris, which opened in 2016 and four additional properties globally: The Confidante Miami Beach; The Driskill in Austin, TX; The Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, AZ; and Carmelo Resort & Spa in Uruguay. Whether it is a captivating past, an exclusive location, famous architecture and design or an award-winning dining experience, each property in the collection maintains a distinct character and the freedom to be unique, while still providing guests with Hyatt’s World of Hyatt loyalty program, robust operational and marketing resources and trusted, quality brand.
Rich in culture and historical relevance, the Hotel Martinez building has a colorful past. It previously served as a home to English aristocrats and, in 1929, luxury hotelier Emmanuel Martinez opened it as the largest hotel in the French Riviera. Hotel Martinez has become a landmark in the French Riviera and has hosted some of the world’s most distinguished guests, which deliver on the brand’s promise of creating story-worthy and shareable experiences for the modern traveler.
“Hotel Martinez will be a great addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt due to its distinct characteristics and personality. The hotel is iconic and its history is truly incredible – all of which is an ideal brand fit,” said Alessandro Cresta, general manager, Hotel Martinez. “The renovation will focus on preserving and enhancing the original details of the building, all while giving it a fresh twist.”
Situated on La Croisette and overlooking the Bay of Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea, the hotel offers 409 guest rooms and suites with breathtaking sea views. Recent renovations combine the hotel’s historic Art Deco style with contemporary flare, inspired by the colors of the Mediterranean.
The renovations to the hotel’s 409 guest rooms were designed by Parisian firm Pierre-Yves Rochon. The rooms’ interior décor honors the traditions of French luxury and Italian influence while providing state of the art modern facilities. The spacious white rooms – brightened with touches of sky blue and pale yellow – are furnished to the highest standard and feature exquisite touches of marble, leather, terrazzo and mosaic. The rooms exude the Art Deco grandeur of the 1930s French Riviera and provides dazzling delights of the city.
Dining and Drinking
Renowned two Michelin star restaurant La Palme d’Or is a highlight of the hotel, serving bold and creative dishes made with local produce in an elegant setting. It features a panoramic terrace with a view overlooking La Croisette and the Mediterranean Sea. A second restaurant with a more relaxed atmosphere will offer guests traditional Mediterranean cuisine in a beautiful garden setting. Guests can also soak up the sun while dining at a seasonal club and restaurant located on the hotel’s private beach.
Wellness and Leisure
The hotel offers guests a variety of leisure and wellness activities: The L. Raphaël Beauty Spa, Hyatt StayFit gym, Kid's Club and seasonal water sports.
Meeting and Event Spaces
Hotel Martinez features 15 modulated meeting rooms, spanning 26,900 square feet. The event spaces can be utilized for a variety of events ranging from conferences and conventions to cocktail receptions and weddings.
