The best expression of art déco in Nice with an extraordinary marble facade.
Magnificence facing the sea
An iconic hotel in the history of Nice during the last century, this building has been an eyewitness of the city's best periods, as well as certain phases of decline which have now fortunately been overcome. Inaugurated in 1929, the Palais de la Méditerranée stands as an emblem of the art déco style in Nice, thanks to a monumental white facade, which is made out of marble: its sober and impressive lines are the entrance to a dreamlike interior. The decoration and the stained-glass windows are a real statement in good taste. Nowadays, it's a luxury hotel run by the company called Hyatt, but with the peculiarity that the terrace located on the third floor is open to the general public. To have a snack on this terrace facing the sea and enjoying the views is an unbeatable experience.
