"Century of Elegance" is the motto of Intercontinental Carlton Cannes. Yes, this must have been an elegant hotel once upon a time, but definetely, not now. We were obliged to have breakfast and dinner in a terrace-converted space instead of the original Carlton Restaurant. The terrace was converted with inappropriate and cheap materials such as wood imitation vinyl flooring, unpleasant to see and irregular to walk on. The dead roses on the tables were not replaced for days, the sink in the bathroom of our sea view room had a crack, we could hear the wake-up call and the conversations in the neighbouring room.
Friday is the day of Lobster & Champagne, again in the terrace-converted restaurant! We were served a completely different lobster dish from the one we had seen on the announccements. The starter and the dessert were very good but unfortunately I cannot say the same for the main dish. It was tasteless and stiff to cut and chew.
I think this is one of the two most beautiful buildings of La Croisette, with an interesting history and I do hope that it will be taken care and maintained accordingly.
