Seeing the World Through Your Eyes Is a Thousand Times Better Than Any Dream

27 April 2023

"With 25 years of experience within the Marriott group, it is with great pleasure and a lot of pride that I open the doors to you of one of the jewels of La Croisette, the JW Marriott Cannes!

Anchored in the history of Cannes, cradle of the film festival, this 5-star hotel, dear to my heart, reopened its doors recently after more than 65 million euros of investment. A symbol of modern style, we now offer 263 rooms, new luxury boutiques, a casino, a champagne bar, an Italian restaurant, a private beach, a panoramic rooftop, as well as a unique conference center on the French Riviera!

Thanks to this project, we are writing a new page in the brand history!"

-Ziad Atrissi




After 18 months of renovations, its originality and authenticity are not only preserved but further enhanced with this extraordinary renovation. The hotel, which does not have to prove its worth anymore, is committed to delighting those who have known and loved it. Movies culture, star's portraits in the corridors and the rooms: the hotel not only keeps its soul. It sets it free.

The JW Marriott Cannes was the original Palais des Festivals, which explains its unique location at the heart of the Croisette boulevard. The stars, the film projections in its mythical 820-seat theatre, the social events, the backstage... A priceless gift for paparazzi to capture the slightest secrets of this timeless festival on camera.


After the renovation of all bedrooms in 2009 and of the event spaces in 2012, the JW Marriott Cannes now turns a new page in its history after over a year of extensive works to become the first contemporary palace of the Croisette.

Alain Moatti and his team have meticulously sublimated the lobby and the restaurant area in a haute-couture spirit.

The hotel lobby, adorned with italian Calacatta Lincoln marble, now welcomes our guests with the most beautiful pieces of furniture from Minotti and Knoll to Christian Lacroix. And the mirror games allow the sea and the nature to enter into the hotel


Creating the new facade on the ground floor was an architectural challenge, with more than 200 custom glasses, all unique and created for this specific space.


The creation of the new footbridge was the biggest challenge.


The new avant-garde entrance has a minimalist and simplistic design. At the Croisette level, you will find luxury boutiques, as well as access to the new reception desk now located on level +1. Now on the upper floor, the new modern reception area enjoy a beautiful sea view. Its mythical chandelier is all the more enhanced by mirroring the incoming rays of sunshine. The 263 rooms, including 50 suites, have had their rooms and bathrooms renovated.


Its emblematic theater with 820 seats, key to its history and identity, remains in the heart of the hotel. The exclusive 859 sqm rooftop still offers its breathtaking views of the bay of Cannes and remains a one of a kind location for your exclusive events. The 2400 sqm of lounges, including 13 modular meeting rooms, are the best spaces for your mice-business.
