37 Promenade des Anglais
Nice, Côte d'Azur, France
The Unexpected Palace
100 years… the Negresco has been overlooking one of the French Riviera’s most beautiful bays for a century.
Le Negresco first opened its doors on January 8th, 1913. The hotel, designed by Henri Negrescu, immediately attracted a brilliant international clientele, Kings of the old and the new world. Jeanne Augier is the guardian of this myth. Owner of the Palace since 1957, this great lady – with deeply-rooted convictions – has devoted her life to the preservation and the development of this unique heritage.
Facing the Mediterranean Sea on the famous Promenade des Anglais, the hotel is a few minutes’ walk away from Nice old town. The perfect combination of historic and contemporary is Negresco’s trademark. Equipped and personalized with exceptional period furniture, each one of the 96 rooms and 21 suites draws its inspiration from the most remarkable French art periods. From Louis XIII style to modern art, five centuries of history are represented. Every room and suite is equipped with LCD TV and wifi access.
