Monaco’s Hotel de Paris reopens
The famous Hotel de Paris Monte-Carlo reopened in May after a three-year refurbishment aimed at reviving the dream of founder Franois Blanc, who opened the property in 1863.
Blanc’s vision was to offer a “hotel that surpasses everything that has been created up until now — an even more meaningful reality”.
The renovations have seen the hotel given more contemporary spaces; larger, more open modern rooms; sumptuous villas; new terraces; an inner patio with abundant vegetation, and more. In September the hotel will offer a new wine cellar housing over 450,000 bottles and a tasting area.
Formula One racing fans might know the Hotel de Paris for its prime location alongside the Monte Carlo Casino, close to where the cars work their way up Avenue d’Ostende on the tight and windy street circuit.
Parts of the hotel’s different wings are continuing to undergo renovations and will be progressively completed ahead of an official grand reopening scheduled for December 2018.
