Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco
For off-the-scale glamour and exclusivity, it doesn’t get better than the minuscule sovereign state of Monaco that’s surrounded on three sides by France and on the fourth by the glittering Mediterranean Sea. So it’s simple to see why the four-star Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco – just 10 metres from the border of this timeless playground for the see-and-be-seen crowd – is such a deal-breaker.
Overlooking the swanky marina in the Cote d’Azur town of Cap d’Ail, everything here is resolutely modern. Each of the decently sized rooms assures tasteful décor that veers on the right side of contemporary, and offers wall-to-wall comfort throughout. Most fabulous, though, are the furnished balconies for hours of sea-gazing and yacht-spotting.
Days here can be spent hitting the jogging trail for an early morning run, working out in the well-equipped gym, relaxing by the outdoor pool, or seeking out sand space at one of the nearby beaches. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to any of the hotel’s three dining spots to enjoy French fare, Provençal specialties, and a cracking choice of cocktails.
