Back in the 1970s, when I lived in the south of France, the Martinez was a tired and overpriced excuse for a top rated hotel. It wasn't anyone's first choice. That's not the case today. A fortune was spent on redecoration, and the rooms are now worthy of the title, first class. What's more, the staff has been trained to four star quality, and are filled with the pride that comes with working in a top rated property. Meet Aurelia, Sofia and Olivier at the front desk and you'll see what I mean. They are terrific! Back in the '70s, the only worthy hotels in Cannes were the Majestic and the Carlton. That's no longer the case. However, this spring, Hyatt is taking control of the Martinez and there's no telling what they'll do. If they "chain-ify" the place, it will be tragic.The Martinez isn't broken so, please Hyatt, don't fix` it. Hopefully, they will be smart enough to leave it the way it is right now. If they do, then today's Martinez must be added to anyone's list of the top 3 hotels in Cannes. / Jeffrey Robinson
