The Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez is set to reopen next spring as Hotel Martinez, a member of the Hyatt Unbound Collection. It is the second Unbound Collection property in Europe, joining Hotel du Louvre in Paris.
Four other Unbound Collection properties worldwide include The Confidante Miami Beach; The Driskill in Austin, Texas; The Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Ariz.; and Carmelo Resort & Spa in Uruguay.
The Hotel Martinez originally served as an aristocratic home before opening as the largest hotel in the French Riviera in 1929. A modern landmark, it provides 409 guestrooms and suites, overlooking the Bay of Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea.
Dining options include the Michelin-starred restaurant La Palme d’Or, as well as a more casual eatery in the garden. Another seasonal restaurant is located on the hotel’s private beach.
“Hotel Martinez will be a great addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt due to its distinct characteristics and personality. The hotel is iconic and its history is truly incredible — all of which is an ideal brand fit,” said Alessandro Cresta, general manager, Hotel Martinez. “The renovation will focus on preserving and enhancing the original details of the building, all while giving it a fresh twist.”
