Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo has opened a new luxurious rooftop suite.
Suite Prince Rainier III, the largest suite in Monte-Carlo’s most iconic property was inaugurated by H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco and H.S.H Princess Stephanie of Monaco.
This spacious suite pay pays tribute to the “Prince builder” to whom Monaco owes its transformation into a leading luxury destination.
The Sovereign Prince of Monaco, Prince Rainier III, who reigned for 56 years, loved and respected by the people, left his mark on Monaco at so many levels: economic, political, social, educational, scientific, sport, cultural. Under his guidance, Monaco experienced a period of unprecedented expansion, including its admission as a Member State into the United Nations in 1993. Today, the Principality is a dream destination for people the world over.
Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo held a special place in the life of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace. In 1956, their wedding breakfast was served at the hotel; 20 years later, they celebrated their wedding anniversary there; and in 1974, Prince Rainier celebrated the 25th year of his reign at the hotel with great pomp. Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo now pays tribute to Prince Rainier, giving his name to this new, exceptional Suite that harmoniously combines the classical luxury of noble and precious materials with contemporary design, creating a space that is light and cosy with clean lines and a warm atmosphere.
The rooftop villa suite features over 500 m² of refined luxury with breath-taking views over the mythical Place du Casino. Designed by Richard Martinet it was created using the best in French and Italian craftsmanship: straw marquetry; leather headboards; textured paints and decorative elements made in the workshops of artisans. The lights were also specially created for the Suite from original designs. Photos, paintings and some of Prince Rainier’s personal effects add a personal and intimate feel to the Suite. Sculptures by the Sovereign provide the final flourish to the interiors scheme, creating a unique experience in the heart of the Principality.
