Hotel Carlton, Cannes
The Carlton InterContinental Cannes is a 343-room luxury hotel on 7 floors built in 1911, and listed by the Government of France as a National Historic Building since 1984.
The Carlton has a large "Belle Époque" façade on the sea front and a private beach.
Inaugurated in 1912, this magnificent Belle Epoque landmark was built when Cannes was a winter destination sought by wealthy Brits and Russians. According to legend, the architect, Charles Dalmas, based the design of the two domes on the breasts of la Belle Otéro, the notorious cabaret performer famous at the turn of the century. The Carlton Hotel, with its fame and location at the centre of la Croisette, is one of Cannes' defining symbols which has been visited by nearly every celebrity on this planet. Today, le Carlton is part of the Intercontinental chain, and remains a luxurious hotel whose name will forever be associated with glamour and celebrities.
We definitely did not stay here, but I had to take a picture of this because it is the Carlton, and I really liked how they decorated it with the movie posters from the films represented at the festival.
If you can't afford it - stroll through the ornate lobby, sit on the couch, pretend, and take a picture.
