Travel Tuesdays: Monte Carlo, Monaco

Planning your next international meeting for that C-level group? Consider Monaco as your preferred location. Anyone who has the seen Casino Royale has seen the extravagance that Monaco has to offer and the decadence that awaits you there.

The principality of Monaco lies in between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, bound by the French Riviera to the west and the Italian Riviera to the east. This is the second smallest independent state in the world and is almost entirely urban. The country is divided into four areas: Monaco-Ville (the old-city), the Condamine (port quarter), Monte-Carlo (business and recreation), and Fontvieille (recreation and light industry).  The country is exploited for its exquisite location and climate, the principality is a resort for tourists and a tax haven for businesses.

Monaco boasts some of the most extravagant hotels in the region perfect for your meetings. Here are a few hotels ready to accommodate to your groups. The Hotel de Paris on Casino Square is considered the top property in Monaco. This 182 room five star hotel offers 7 meeting rooms to accommodate to your groups. Built in 1864, this hotel symbolizes the very same excellence in the art of hospitality. Not to mention it is only a few steps away from the legendary Casino de Monte-Carlo!

The Hotel Hermitage is but a block away from the aforementioned Hotel de Paris. The 280 room five star hotel offers 8 meeting rooms and over 6,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. Centralized in the heart of Monte Carlo, it offers great views of the city and accessibility to the sparkling life of Monaco and unforgettable sunsets over the sea.

Last but not least, the Fairmont Monte Carlo offers more of a modern feel to your stay. With over 600 sleeping rooms and over 40,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, the Fairmont Monte Carlo offers great luxury for your group. Also situated in the Principality of Monaco in between the Mediterranean Sea and the legendary Casino of Monte Carlo, the Fairmont reflects exclusive and sophisticated locale through the hotel’s exceptional meeting facilities.
Of course luxury hotels are not the only items Monaco has to offer. Aside from the extravagant style of living, Monaco offers incredible music, art, and exploration.
Your group will have plenty of activities to keep them busy.
