Change of name for two of the Riviera’s biggest hotels!

Two of the biggest and most famous hotels on the French Riviera have undergone a change of name!

Those of you with an apartment in Nice, a villa in Cannes or a property in the surrounding areas will surely know of the Hotel Martinez in Cannes and the Palais de la Méditerranée in Nice. Well these two famous hotels will soon be rechristened following a new management agreement between Chicago-based Hyatt and Constellations Hotels Holding Ltd. The local landmarks now fall under the Hyatt family of hotels, and have lengthier titles to match.

Cannes Hotel Martinez

The historic sign of the Hôtel Martinez will still feature in this year's Cannes Film Festival.

"Hyatt announces the signing of management agreements for hotels in Paris, Cannes and Nice; locations include iconic and historic buildings dating back to 1855," confirmed the Hyatt Hotels Corporation, who now boasts a total of seven establishments in France.

Palais de la Méditerrannée

From Tuesday 9th April, the Hôtel Martinez will be officially named Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez, while the Palais de la Mediterranée hotel and casino will be hailed Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée.

As Peter Fulton, representative of the Hyatt group, explained: "Paris and Cannes are France’s two most important cities for business and leisure travel, and Nice is one of the most in-demand resort areas in the world."

We have to say that we completely agree with his assessment of Nice’s status as a world-class holiday destination; all the more reason to invest in Nice Real Estate!
