Monaco: an exceptional destination
The Principality of Monaco symbolises fine living and the art of welcoming visitors.
Its choice of hotels and congress infrastructures is unrivalled. It can offer individual tourists and groups of tourists an array of hotels spanning the entire range - from luxury hotels to two-star hotels. On top of this, Monaco can also offer large-scale, structured and secure logistics for the organisation of events.
Monaco has embarked on a policy of excellence in matters of hotels and congresses. The Principality is seen as a benchmark for the perfect hosting of visitors in the fields of individual tourism, incentive and corporate travel, international business tourism events and key regional and cultural events.
The Principality offers a particularly varied range of 15 hotels, open all year round. Since August 2010, a new hotel rating system has been put in place. The 4-star-luxury category has been abolished, now replaced by the 5-star category.
There are four establishments in this most luxurious category, offering the height of comfort: the Hôtel Hermitage, the Hôtel de Paris, the Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo and the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel.
The Fairmont Monte Carlo and the Méridien Beach Plaza are rated in the 4-star category, along with the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort and the Port Palace. Apart from these internationally reputed luxury hotels, the Principality boasts four 3-star hotels: (the Ambassador, the Columbus, the Miramar and the Novotel), and two 2-star hotels.
Over 2,400 rooms and suites are thus made available to a clientele that visits from all over the globe, but mostly from Italy, France, Great Britain, the United States and Germany.
Monaco is a natural Mecca for gourmet cuisine, thanks to the talent and the international reputations of the great chefs who work in the Principality.
