For as much as my general comment re: Monte Carlo would be "avoid it", as nowadays, it has just as much glamour as the hordes of Spaniards they discharge off the ferry for their 20 minutes "day trip" through the city, I can only recommend staying at the Port Palace. It wasn't even the most expensive place, but much better than others I have stayed at in Monte Carlo. Supposedly a Boutique Hotel, the rooms are still bigger than most Tokyo apartments, and the view is much better than what they show on the 50” (I don’t dare to say 60”…) screen you have as a TV in front of your 3 meters wide bed: many impressive boats and even more activities of the new- and old-rich on them directly under your window. The staff is friendly and obliging despite being Monegasques, the gym is ridiculous but existing, and I am a bit sorry, I didn’t have dinner there (but my private bank account doesn’t allow that and the business dinner was in another place), as the menu looked quite attractive. Not much “green” around it, but this is sort of implicit in a very urban surrounding.
PS: Nice pseudo-Jacuzzi they have…
