F. Scott Fitzgerald favorite French Riviera Hotels

In the moment that the famous writer and his family needed to find “a new rhythm to our lives” as Fitzgerald wrote, they left their home on Long Island for the South of France, hoping to find a cheaper place to live and some quietude do write. They traveled through the then-cheap French Riviera Hotels. Many of the sunbaked restaurants, villas, and hotels they frequented still exist on the mythic stretch of coastline he dubbed “a playground for the world.”

Here’s where to walk in the  French Riviera Hotels in the same way that Fitzgerald did.

The stately Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, in Antibes, France, has held court on the rocky Côte d’Azur since the 1870s—playing host to everybody from Hemingway and Picasso to Liz in Dick to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The world’s most glamorous have flocked to Hotel du Cap since Scott’s day: his friends Gerald and Sara Murphy, the models for Dick and Nicole Diver, once rented the hotel for an entire summer, drawing compatriots like the Fitzgeralds, Ernest Hemingway, and Pablo Picasso into their magnetic orbit. Of course, nowadays the hotel is packed during the summer and is the virtual center of the universe during the Cannes Film Festival.

Opened in 1920 as Chez Robinson, an open-air terrace cafe, and bar. Scott and Zelda have known fans of the hotel’s restaurant, a traditional French spot featuring the main dining hall, private room, and garden terrace, reportedly spending many a raucous evening at La Colombe D’Or. It was here that a jealous Zelda once threw herself down a flight of stairs after Scott drunkenly flirted with the dancer Isadora Duncan.

While Gerald and Sara Murphy were living at the Hotel du Cap, waiting for renovations to be completed on their retreat Villa America, the Fitzgeralds stayed at the Continental Hotel in Saint-Raphaël in 1924. It’s here that Scott wrote the majority of The Great Gatsby.

Monte-Carlo Casino, Monte Carlo

“Once in the middle twenties, I was driving along the High Corniche Road through the twilight with the whole French Riviera twinkling on the sea below. As far ahead as I could see was Monte Carlo … when life was literally a dream.” – On Authorship, Scott Fitzgerald. Monte Carlo Casino was a favorite destination for the couple, mentioned frequently in their letters and writings.

Here, the hard-reveling couple would drink themselves into a stupor, with Scott reportedly a fan of the hotel bar’s gin fizz and mint juleps.

Zelda wrote of dining on the terrace where “stars fell in our plates … and we were alone with the deep blue grandeur and the filet de sole Ruhl, and the second bottle of champagne.”

Hôtel Beau Rivage, Nice

The Hotel Beau Rivage was another spot where the couple stayed and played—although, in Zelda’s words, more “economically” than at other spots. Today, the hotel has been renovated, offering air conditioning, a private beach, and a terrace front restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean.

F.Scott Fitzgerald favorite French Riviera Hotels 8 french riviera hotels F. Scott Fitzgerald favorite French Riviera Hotels FHôtel Belles-Rives, Juan-les-Pins

In 1926, Scott, Zelda, and Scottie returned to the Riviera and rented a seaside house in Juan-les-Pins. Take note of the letter from Fitzgerald to Hemingway in 1926, framed and on display in the lobby: “With our being back in a nice villa on my beloved Riviera (between Nice and Cannes) I’m happier than I’ve been for years. It’s one of those strange, precious and all too transitory moments when everything in one’s life seems to be going well.”

The Burj Al Arab hotel is a towering achievement in design as a whole, but even broken down into its individual components, each one remains a visual treat. It all begins in the futuristic lobby, housed in a towering atrium and brought to life by an intriguing but relaxing colour scheme.

(Curious we found a partner in the gallery when we are choosing the photos to the article. The coffee table is from BRABBU, a interior design brand.)

3. What was your major challenge while building the concept?
Working within the confines of buildings designated as city landmarks.

4. Who designed the project?
HOK

5. In which way does the interior design influence the service you offer your guests?
We believe the light and contemporary feel is far more welcoming and relaxing to our guests than the previous heavy and traditional style.

6. What kind of services do you provide?
Everything one would expect from a luxury hotel; 24 hour housekeeping and room service, a fully staffed department called ”Guest Experience” whose sole mission is maintaining guest history and preferences and striving to exceed guest expectations every time.

It is important to note that we also are home to The Towers at The New York Palace, which provide guests with a true 5 star experience and product. A separate lobby provides a dedicated check-in experience. Express elevators whisk guests to floors 41 – 54. Our Towers accommodations are among the most spacious in the city and every one provides spectacular skyline views. Ensuring that guests receive the highest level of personalized service, The Towers come complete with a dedicated Les Clefs d’Or concierge team. Other exclusive amenities for Towers guests include house car service in a dedicated Mercedes GL350 or Maybach, Maître d’Etage service, complimentary shoe shine and valet pressing, weekday newspaper delivery, and packing and unpacking services.

7. What are the main challenges the world’s top hotels are faced with every day?
What are the reasons that make you the best in your business? It is providing the perfect balance of product, experience and service. Like every other industry we have become tremendously dependent upon technology to manage our business, but we cannot forget that this is a business rooted in humanity, personal contact, communication and relationships. We succeed because we have sourced an army of managers and employees who sincerely care for the comfort and wellbeing of our guests. Every year we hire an independent consulting company to conduct an extensive employee opinion survey. The number one response year after year is “I am proud to work for the New York Palace.”

8. What is the restaurant’s concept?
At present the restaurant is operating only for breakfast and we are working on a new culinary concept for the space.

9. How did the partnership with Chef Michel Richard start?
Chef Richard has a long history with our ownership entity Northwood Hospitality.

10. When guests choose to stay in your hotel, are they also looking for a true gourmet experience?
Guests here and at every other New York hotel are looking for the vast culinary experiences that this city provides. With such a tremendous array of cultures and cuisines, it is difficult for hotels to compete with the seemingly endless range of offerings. Our top rated Concierge team provides our guests with a wealth of information and inside contacts.

11. How would you describe the cuisine style?
What should we definitely try? Check back with us in a few months.

12. Tell me a funny story about New York Palace.
More profound than funny…in the 1970’s the Villard Houses and adjoining buildings were purchased by real estate magnate Harry Helmsley. In the original plan he would build a 55 story high rise fronting Madison Avenue which would mean demolition of the Villard properties. Grand Central Station and Carnegie Hall were slated for the same fate. The New York City landmarks commission and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis put a halt to that plan and thankfully preserved these buildings for all time. One can only imagine how the demure yet forceful Mrs. Onassis stood her ground against the legendary “Queen of Mean” Leona Helmsley.

Welcome to New York Palace!
