h for history:
114 years of luxury and understated elegance

The amazing history of the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo is punctuated with spectacular events and unexpected transformations. Five dates in the atypical history of a luxury hotel which, since 1900, has changed in every way except in spirit.

1900: Modest beginnings.

1900. In the elegant setting of the promenade in the large Casino gardens, reputable restaurant owner J. Giroix and Vincent Benoit, owner of the famous restaurant Les Princes in London, opened the Hermitage Hôtel and Restaurant together. They partnered with A. Delor, a businessman in Bordeaux who promised them the best wine cellar in all Monte-Carlo. They were so successful that they significantly expanded the establishment in 1906, as reported by the New York Herald on 18 February.

1928: SBM enters centre stage.

1928. The success of the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo remained. The Société des Bains de Mer, owner of the Casino and the prestigious Hôtel de Paris, felt threatened by the success of the Hôtel Hermitage, the only establishment it felt was capable of stealing its limelight. The Société des Bains de Mer acquired the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo.

1970’s: A facelift.

1970. The success of the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo remained. The Société des Bains de Mer, owner of the Casino and the prestigious Hôtel de Paris, felt threatened by the success of the Hôtel Hermitage, the only establishment it felt was capable of stealing its limelight. The Société des Bains de Mer acquired the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo.

2000: Expansion.

2000. What the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo hadn't yet accomplished in a century, it set out to do in just a few months. Two floors were added to the Hotel using technical know-how that is a Monte-Carlo trademark. The lobby was entirely transformed and the Diamond Suites were created, illustrating the hotel's philosophy since its inception: welcome clients not as customers, but as our guests.

2014: Recognition

Silver Standard Certification awarded by Welcome Chinese, classified in the Top 101 Suites 2014 by Elite Traveler, certified Monaco Welcome 2014, voted Event Hotel of the Year 2012 by Eventia, Prix Villégiature 2012 in the category Best Hotel Atmosphere in Europe, World’s Best Award by Travel & Leisure 2012 in the category Large City Hotels, TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Thank you, Gustave

Thank you, Gustave

In 1906, elegant travellers came to the Côte d’Azur to winter. Winter gardens were all the rage,
modelled after nineteenth century English castles. The one at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo
was topped with a spectacular dome designed by none other than the great Gustave Eiffel.

There's a horse in the hallway

There's a horse in the hallway

To go to the hotel restaurant, the first clients had to travel down a path several
dozen metres long in a horse-drawn carriage. This path later became
the beautiful Princes Gallery that connects the hotel's two entrances on foot.

No light without shadow

No light without shadow

Like yin and yang, or two sides of the same coin, the destinies of the Hôtel de Paris and the Hôtel
Hermitage Monte-Carlo have been entwined for over a century. If the Hôtel de Paris shines,
the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo relishes shadow, charming and delighting discerning travellers.

Scorpio party (1969)

12 November 1969, Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo. Sixty stars get together for Princess Grace's
40th birthday party. They were all Scorpios, just like her. But the one who stole the limelight
that night was a Pisces. Alongside her husband, Richard Burton, Liz wore a million-dollar Cartier necklace.
