Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo

An iconic palace in the heart of Monaco
The 150-plus-year-old Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo has quite the pedigree. It’s hosted everyone from the Rockefellers to Rothschilds — as well as Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace’s wedding dinner.

In 2014, the palace embarked on a four-year renovation led by French architect Richard Martinet (also behind The Peninsula Paris), giving a greater sense of definition to what François Blanc initially envisioned in 1864 as, “a hotel that surpasses everything that has been created until now.”

The modernized hotel emerged with stunning suites, award-winning restaurants, a jeweler’s courtyard, exclusive access to Thermes MarinsMonte-Carlo, Casino de Monte-Carlo and the haute-couture boutiques of One Monte-Carlo. The palace's transformation brings a host of new sensations to life, right in the heart of Monaco.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Experience a touch of the good life at Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, whether you’re enjoying a cup of tea in the enchanting Jeweler’s Courtyard, enjoying live jazz at Le Bar Américan or taking a leisurely dip in the rooftop pool at the Wellness Sky Club.

  • Hôtel de Paris is home to the world’s largest hotel wine cellar, stocked with more than 350,000 bottles — half of which hail from Bordeaux. Set up a private tasting with the master sommelier who will guide you through a selection of exquisite sips.
  • The two-story Princess Grace Suite (spanning the seventh and eighth floors) pays tribute to the legendary royal through artwork and books from her personal library, as well as bouquets of her favorite blush pink roses.

Things to Know

  • When the rooftop indoor-outdoor wellness space features a pool and loungers, steam and sauna facilities and a fitness center.
  • Reserve rooms during Monaco’s Formula 1 Grand Prix well in advance; the luxury hotel sits on a prime position along the race track with suites serving as front-row seats to the show.
  • Guests have complimentary access to the neighboring Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo. The 75,000-square-foot spa spans four levels and features amenities like a covered saltwater pool, hammam and Jacuzzi overlooking the Prince’s Palace.

The Rooms

  • Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo's sun-drenched rooms are tastefully decorated with sophisticated Murano glass chandeliers, gold-streaked antique mirrors and Italian Calacatta-marble-lined bathrooms.
  • The two-bedroom Princess Grace Suite, spanning almost 10,000 square feet, delivers sublime views from its terrace of the Mediterranean and the Prince’s Palace. The unit also has a heated infinity pool and granite Jacuzzi.

  • The nearly-9,000-square-foot Prince Rainier III Suite overlooks the Place du Casino and offers its own infinity pool with wave system.
  • The suites (which make up 60 percent of the room count) are more spacious and modern, offering a classically French feel (think brass bar carts, luxe bronze-colored linens and Louis XVI-style furniture) without being stuffy.

The Restaurants

  • A well-heeled crowd gathers for pre-dinner cocktails (some of Monaco’s best) at the burgundy-silk-lined jazz club Le Bar Américain, whose terrace looks out at the famous Monte-Carlo Casino.
  • Alain Ducasse’s renowned Le Louis XV may have received a sprucing up, but the gilded space still exudes Old World glamour — and a dress code. Put on your formalwear and swing by for lunch on the weekend or indulge in the four-course gourmet dinner menu sprinkled with regal, regionally inspired dishes.
  • Savor shareable Lebanese-Mediterranean fare at Em Sherif Monte-Carlo, which overlooks the water.
  • Sitting on top of the luxury hotel, Le Grill lets you admire stunning views that stretch to the Italian coast while you enjoy upscale Mediterranean cuisine.
