The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo embarks on its re-creation


The Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo will engage in a renovation program on 6th October 2014. This will ensure that the Hôtel de Paris continues to satisfy the ever-more demanding requirements of the luxury hotel clientele.

A real challenge

6 October 2014 will be one of the outstanding dates in the 150-year history of the l’Hôtel de Paris, star hotel of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer group, with the launch of a vast program of renovation and restructuring that is scheduled to last for 4 years and will, when completed, add a new dimension to the dream of François Blanc, of “a hotel that transcends anything so far created”.


The hotel will be completely closed during the renovation works from 6 October to 15 December 2014, in order to prevent compromising the quality of our service.


For the remainder of the renovation works, the hotel will continue to operate but with a limited number of rooms and suites.


The Hôtel de Paris is scheduled to fully reopen in September 2018.


An exhibition presenting images of the renovation program is set in the “Sporting d’Hiver”.



Major innovations

Renovation will concern the whole of the establishment, with restructuring both of public areas 

and of service facilities. Total capacity will remain similar to the present figure, while the surface of rooms and suites will be greater and the proportion of suites increased.


Major innovations include the creation of a garden courtyard in the centre of the establishment and enhanced use of the roof space with the installation there of a new fitness, spa and pool area, superlative suites, and a “rooftop villa” with its own private pool and garden. These renovations and creations will ensure that the Hôtel de Paris continues to satisfy the ever-more demanding requirements of the luxury hotel clientele.



The hotel’s historic facade opposite the Café de Paris will remain intact. Its legendary Lobby and Cellar, and its emblematic establishments such as the American Bar, the Salle Empire, the Louis XV and the Grill, will all continue to exist.


In line with S.B.M.’s commitments to sustainable development, the project will comply with BREEAM standards (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method).


Architects Richard Martinet and Gabriel Viora have been given the task of perpetuating and sublimating the spirit of the Hôtel de Paris as it inspired their predecessors Jules Laurent Dutrou and Edouard-Jean Niermans, while giving it new roots in the 21st century so that its legend may live on.
