For nearly a century the mythical Hotel NEGRESCO has dominated the Promenade des Anglais on the Baie des Anges with its huge pink dome. Its magical name evokes a certain “art de vivre” and the happy go lucky days of the “Edwardian era”.

Henri NEGRESCO, born in 1868, constructed the hotel in 1912. The son of a Rumanian innkeeper, he left his home at the age of 15 in order to travel around Europe. From Paris he went to Monaco and then to Nice where he became director of the Municipal Casino. At this time he was already quite famous and heads of state, princes and the American “kings” of finance, the Rockefellers, the Vanderbildts and the Singers had all heard of Negresco !

His dream was to build a palace worthy of his prestigious clients and he entrusted the construction of his “palace” to one of the most talented architects of that time, Edouard Niermans.

Since 1957 the hotel has been owned by Jeanne AUGIER who has put all her energy into creating a museum-hotel that has become a veritable showcase of French art for her international visitors. In 2003 the Hotel Negresco was listed a National Historic Building - a well earned recognition for the Hotel, its exceptional architecture and the superb art collection that it houses.
