More news from the 1835 While Palm Hotel: following its renovation and (and renaming) in 2009, the hotel will be re-branded as the Radisson Blu in December 2010. To be honest, I had just got used to calling it the White Palm, and not the Sofitel.
The Radisson Blu is the stylish hotel located at the tip of the old port, offering views across the bay and port. Its rooftop (photo by Alice Taylor) is a fantastic place for drinks far from the bustle of the Croisette.
The hotel was designed by Frenchmen Marc Hertrich and Nicolas Adnet. Besides 134 stylish and bright guest rooms it features 6 meeting rooms and 3 restaurants: “Le 360” is situated on a roof terrace offering, as the name implies, 360 degree views of Cannes, the sea and the harbour. “Le Bio” is located within the spa, specializes in healthy dishes and offers a unique “Bento Box” concept. “30(°)Celsius” serves light meals on the ground floor.
A further highlight of the hotel is the Thalasso spa, Les Thermes Marins de Cannes, one of the finest in the region. The 2,700 square meters facility offers 46 treatment rooms, a fitness centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hammam (Turkish bath), sauna, caldarium (Roman bath) and whirlpools.
