Welcome to the legendary Carlton in Cannes. Built in 1911 with inspiration from the Belle Ã‰poque period, this magnificent hotel is situated on one of France`s most famous avenues, La Croisette. The Bay of Cannes sparkles just outside the doors, and the Palais des Festivals is a short walk away. The old town, shopping on Rue d`Antibes, and the mysterious Lérins Islands are not to be missed, like a lunch at the `Carlton Beach Restaurant` where you can try to spot celebrities. The Carlton is famous for hosting movie stars from around the world during the Film Festival. More Famously, the hotel was the central location for the Alfred Hitchcock film `to catch a thief` starring Grace Kelly and Cary Grant and it was while staying at the Carlton that Grace Kelly met Prince Rainier of Monaco. The beautiful standard rooms have a mountain view and are spacious and luxurious.
