InterContinental Carlton Cannes

Built in 1911 to welcome British and Russian aristocracy, this hotel will be familiar to film buffs. Alfred Hitchcock's "To Catch a Thief" was set at the property in 1956. But its claim to fame doesn't stop there. Befitting the hotel's location in the home of the world's most famous film festival, signature suites are named after movie stars. The natural choices (Grace Kelly, Cary Grant) are complemented by some less obvious selections (Sean Penn, Sharon Stone.) For those who want to take full advantage of the bay, the setting couldn't be better. Along with sea views from the guest rooms and restaurant, the hotel offers water-skiing and parasailing from its very own pier.
