Extravagant renovations are transforming this landmark Monte Carlo hotel into a cutting edge gem.
Synonymous with high-end Riviera luxury, the gorgeous building that houses the Hotel de Paris Monte Carlo has been a local fixture for 150 years. October 2014 saw the launch of a four-year renovation program that will elevate the already lavish property to even greater heights with a new garden courtyard, updated suites and a rooftop villa with private garden and pool. The hotel will remain open throughout the renovation period, with a limited capacity of 53 rooms and suites. The stunning façade overlooking Casino Square will remain untouched, as will historical spaces such as the lobby with its signature equestrian statue of Louis XIV (thought to bring luck to those who touch it), the American Bar, the Louis XV-Alain Ducasse restaurant, the Empire Room and the legendary 450,000-bottle wine cellar. When renovations are completed in 2018, the hotel will be home to a new spa, a modern fitness facility and a pool --- innovations that will continue to rank the property at the forefront of French luxury hotels.
