The Hotel Negresco was the dream of Henri Negresco and was to be Nice's first luxury hotel. It was built in the belle epoque style and was completed in 1912. It is still a beautiful hotel after all these years, maintaining its charm and character. It has actually been listed as a National Historic Building.

It is as much a museum as it is a hotel. Inside you will find a classic decor with many intricate details to remind you that the Negresco was and is very much a palace. Just beyond the reception area, you will find a rotunda which contains many works of art. At this time, there was a blending of classic and modern art being displayed.
