Stay with the stars at the Festival de Cannes

Hotel Martinez is a renowned luxurious hotel built in 1929 that contributed to the fairytale that the Festival de Cannes, launched in 1946 under the name “Festival International du Film de Cannes”, inspires.

Located on the most famous lane of Cannes, La Croisette, the palace has often welcomed guests from the media and entertainment business. Hotel Martinez is indeed only 500 metres away from the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès where, every year, the famous red carpet is unrolled and a jury made of celebrities awards the Palme d’Orto the year’s best movie.

Hotel Martinez also has the largest private beach in Cannes: Zplage. Every year, at the time of the festival, the television channel Canal+ settles on this beach to cover events related to the Cannes international film festival.

For its 65th edition, the Cannes Film Festival pays tribute to the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe. The festival will be held this year from May 16 to 27, 2012.
