Palais Stephanie Gets a Royal Upgrade

The site of the original Cannes Film Festival has received an extensive renovation—to the tune of $51 million. The Palais Stephanie, located in the center of the Promenade de la Croisette just steps from the beach, features 261 rooms with views of the bay. The expansive upgrade, unveiled in time for the Cannes Film Festival and sizzling summer season, includes newly installed private terraces and a dramatic new rooftop with a heated swimming pool and Jacuzzis with views of the Bay of Cannes, Lerins Islands, and Esterel Mountains. The rooftop offers cocktails and organic snacks at all hours. Additionally, 150 slot machines and 19 gaming tables have been installed, and private lounges are accessible for late-night entertaining within the La Scena Lounge Bar. For those visiting during the film festival, the most coveted room is the Palais Stephanie’s 750-square-foot corner suite with a separate living area and an expansive private terrace providing front-row viewing of the stars as they pass by on their way to screenings.
