Le Cavendish Hotel was built in 1897 and named after Lord Henry Cavendish, an English physician and chemist who's been pegged "the richest of intelligent men and the most intelligent of rich men." Today, after more than six months of renovations, Le Cavendish is again greeting its guest with attentive service and unabashed luxury.
The hotel is awash in tranquil blues, as well as warm violets and dynamic yellows, to create a vibrant edge. The hotel's guests can relax in one of the 34 luxurious guest rooms, which are designed to re-create the atmosphere of the beautiful houses of the Riviera at the turn of the century. Each has been renovated and refurbished with air-conditioning, a mini-bar, safe-deposit box and two direct phone lines per room.
The Executive Rooms are the largest, with beautiful carrare marble bathrooms. The creme de la creme are the Rotunda Rooms, each of which offers a beautiful balcony that overlooks the city. Guests can also enjoy the lounge bar, which boasts a hearty buffet breakfast of homemade pastries, marmalades, loose-leaf teas and much more. In the evening, guests can visit the Lounge Bar, for a free open bar where international spirits, wines from Provence and soft drinks are served.
It's a five-minute walk from the hotel to the Palais des Festivals and La Croisette beaches. Le Cavendish staff prepare their guests for a full day of exploring or relaxing by providing a comprehensive list of the key places in Cannes and the region. This new address in Cannes is ideal for demanding travelers looking for something different from traditional hotels.
