The only boutique-style hotel in Monaco, the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo is relaxed luxury in a fabulous location

What you need to know about the hotel

This urban palace offers an updated take on traditional Monaco style

  • Yoshi, the first Joel Robuchon Japanese restaurant in the world, boasts a sushi bar and opens onto Japanese-style gardens
  • The seventh floor of the hotel hosts the Prestige Suites—including the opulent Carré d’Or, with a 1,184-square-foot terrace overlooking the Mediterranean
  • Metropole Lifestyle card gives priority access to the Hotel’s restaurants & spa, complimentary access to the Monte-Carlo Casino & Metropole shopping Center boutiques discounts

The grand Belle Époque exterior is the first thing you notice about Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo. It’s not surprising, then, to discover its history dates back to 1886, when the original hotel was constructed on land owned by Pope Leon XIII. It was an immediate hit with international taste-makers—a trend that continues today, following a 2004 reinvention that modernized the hotel without losing the original character.

The 62 rooms and 64 suites maintain the building’s classic-meets-Mediterranean ambience, as do the hotel’s public spaces. Among those are four restaurants and bars—including two Michelin-starred restaurants and one designed by Karl Lagerfeld. There’s also 20,000 square feet of leisure facilities, most notably a spa, pool, gardens, terrace and sundeck.

The Tuscan cypress-lined road leading to Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo lets you know you’ve landed in a whole other world—one in which beauty and elegance are always in vogue. Perhaps that’s why shopping is an art form in Monte-Carlo. The hotel is part of Monte Carlo’s famed Carré d’Or area, which houses the most prestigious shops. Neighboring roads are dotted with stores like Cartier, Chopard and Bulgari (forming the “jewelry window”), while antiques hunters will find plenty of reasons to part with their money here, as well.

Other possibilities include exploring the sea on a posh yacht, spending the evening at the opera or taking a helicopter ride for the best views of the coast. It’s amazing how much there is to do both night and day in Monte Carlo.

How to enjoy Monaco

Monaco was first brought to the attention of the wider world when darling of the silver screen, Grace Kelly, married into royalty and became Prince Grace of Monaco. The miniature principality, (it barely stretches to a square mile), knows how to do luxury well

  • A quick guide: Monte Carlo is a district of Monaco (like Manhattan in NYC or Mayfair in London); now join the cognoscenti who know
  • For exquisite upscale shopping, browse the stores of Cercle d’Or, Avenue de Monte-Carlo, Avenue des Beaux Arts and the Allées Lumières
  • For three Michelin-Star dining, make a reservation for Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse, the signature restaurant of the elegant Hotel de Paris

From the fairy tale gilt and stucco of the cliff top Prince’s Palace to the marble and chandeliers of the casino, extravagance abounds. Monaco is a playground of the wealthy and home to Greek shipping magnates, multinational oil millionaires and celebrity A listers such as Ringo Starr, Roger Moore and Novak Djokovic, possibly drawn by the guarantee of excellent service and wonderful Mediterranean weather.

One of the best ways to arrive in Monaco is by yacht. Moor in Port de Fontvielle for wonderful views of the cliffs climbing high up the steep-sloped principality. Perhaps the best address in town, especially during the annual Monaco Grand Prix that races around the streets of Monte Carlo and traces the harbor’s edge, is aboard a yacht in Port Hercule. Failing that, do as the locals do and fly in to the Monte Carlo Heliport.
