Returning to The Carton after so many years evoked such enjoyable memories of this classic hotel. I was a teenager then when my dad took our family there and now, some 40 year later, it is mostly the
same although we were excited to see so many high-end shops around the hotel, adding to the fun of visiting Cannes.
Through my IHG Ambassador membership, we were fortunate to get a sensational upgrade to the prime ocean view Nicholas Cage suite complete with walk-out balcony centered above the famous Carlton clock.
The front desk staff were so hospitable and even volunteered to call ahead to the Hotel de Paris, our next stop, and alert one of their hotel associates who had recently taken a job there, of our upcoming arrival. Quite unexpected but that is what you can expect staying at this famous Grand Dame hotel.
There are still a few upgrades that need to be done to the lobby area and the suites and we understand that improvements are slated to be done in the near future. [Less]
