There’s a new very-affordable hotel option in Cannes, the 134-room Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel & Thalasso. It's a re-do of the 1835 White Palm Hotel and it opened last month. Situated in the old quarter of Le Suquet, overlooking the harbor, it’s within walking distance of Palais des Festivals et Congres,
site of the Cannes Film Festival. It’s also just a short stroll from La Croisette, Cannes’ famous seafront boulevard. The four-star hotel offers free WiFi in all guestrooms, six meeting rooms, three restaurants, a rooftop bar with 360-degree views and a 29,000-square-foot spa known as Les Thermes Marins de Cannes, where you’ll find 46 treatment rooms, a fitness center, indoor and outdoor pools, hammam, sauna, Roman bath and whirlpools. Running the food side are chef Reynald Thivet, who came from Le Bistrot de Mougins, just up the hill in Mougins, and F&B Manager Jean-Remy Casnedi, who owns a popular restaurant, La Grange des Agapes, and a tapas bar, L’Apero de L'Accoustillage, in St. Tropez. The Radisson Blu 1835 Hotel & Thalasso belongs to the Brussels-based Rezidor Hotel Group, operator of 400 hotels in 60 countries. Room rates begin at € 139. For info or reservations, click here
