IHG to Open First New Generation Regent Hotel in Europe
IHG Hotels & Resorts has announced an historic addition to its Regent Hotels & Resorts portfolio - a continuation of its partnership with the hotel’s owner and developer, Katara Hospitality.
Carlton Cannes, a Regent Hotel will open in Spring 2023 after a two-year multi-million Euro redevelopment. The property will become a flagship property within the new generation of Regent Hotels & Resorts, as the brand – part of IHG’s Luxury & Lifestyle Collection - returns to reimagine modern luxury once more.
Carlton Cannes, a Regent Hotel will have 332 rooms and 37 branded residences. Guests staying at Calton Cannes – a Regent Hotel will experience the brand’s distinctive new hallmarks.
The epitome of elegance and the ‘Grande Dame’ of Cannes’ hotel scene, the property’s majestic Belle Epoque façade, framed by twin domes, occupies the frontage of an entire city block overlooking the prestigious beachfront promenade, La Croisette.
The addition of Carlton Cannes to the Regent Hotels & Resorts portfolio marks a truly historic milestone in the reimagination of the legendary Regent brand since it joined IHG Hotels & Resorts in 2018.
Created in 1970 to reinvent luxury travel, the brand builds on a storied heritage of innovation, extraordinary views, landmark destinations and exceptional service. Carlton Cannes will join the new era of Regent along with Chongqing, Shanghai and Phu Quoc in celebrating the most refined experiences for modern luxury trendsetters.
Carlton Cannes is one of eight Regent properties in the pipeline for IHG and will be a brand flagship property in Europe. The signing signifies the importance of the French market to IHG.
France has long been a go-to destination for European and global leisure and business travellers. Currently there are 63 open hotels and 18 hotels in the pipeline in France.
