Inaugurated in 1913, the Negresco is one of the most emblematic palaces in Europe. Its neoclassical architecture with a baroque tendency testifies to the richness of its history and the hotel has maintained the highest level of excellence over the decades. Many hotels claim to have a world-class art collection but in the case of the stunning Le Negresco, it is utterly true—and then some. Works by Moretti, Dalí and sculptress Niki de Saint-Phalle are strikingly mixed in with the interiors’ rare antiques and historical paintings. Jeanne Augier (family-owner from 1957 to 2019) was an art connoisseur who amassed a museum-worthy collection here (the Negresco has been). The striking pink-andwhite building itself, complete with a domed tower, is a National Historic Monument and faces the Bay of Angels. The most sumptuous suites have balconies overlooking the sparkling sea, but all showcase Madame Augier’s exquisite taste. Guests inspired by the art here can visit such nearby museums as Musée Matisse and Musée National Marc Chagall.
The Negresco mixes the old and the new. All rooms and suites are inspired by the mythical periods of the history of French art. From the Louis XIII style to modern art, five centuries are represented. Designed for families, ‘De Luxe’ rooms have an area of 50 sqm (538 sqft) and can accommodate three people. They offer space and peace and have a view of the inner courtyard of the hotel. Other rooms and suites offer a relaxing view of the sea and the park of Palais Massena with its centenary palms. The hotel features a gym and access to the private beach ‘Le Neptune’. WiFi is free throughout the property. A business centre and nine seminar and conference rooms are available for very busy dads and moms. Valet parking is available at a cost of €28/day and the hotel has special access for disabled guests.
