The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo receives Travel & Leisure and Prix Villégiature 2012 awards


The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo has been honoured by the readers of the magazine Travel & Leisure and has also won the Prix Villégiature award for “Best Hotel Atmosphere in Europe”.  

Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo Travel & Leisure  


Travel & Leisure, the international magazine dedicated to high-end travel, asks its readers every year to vote for their favourite travel-service providers. In 2012, the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo received the same honour as the Monte-Carlo SBM group’s Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, last year’s winner of a World’s Best Award for European hotels in the “Large City Hotels” category.


This latest award for the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo reflects the recognition of the excellence of the Monte-Carlo SBM establishments and their teams’ know-how.


The quality of the reception and service is inimitable thanks to the know-how of the men and women who work there, offering customers much more than what you’d expect even in a grand palace.


Prix Villégiature 2012 “Best Hotel Atmosphere in Europe”


The Prix Villégiature awards are conferred by a jury of twenty-one international journalists and three directors of high-end European hotels. Through eighteen categories, they reward the best hotels in Europe, Asia and Africa as well as the best websites to exceptional travel destinations.


The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo won the Prix Villégiature for “Best Hotel Atmosphere in Europe”. The Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo recently finished a restructuring programme that began in 2003. This consisted of raising the height of the Beaumarchais Wing and creating 46 new rooms, 8 Monte-Carlo Diamond Suites and the Salle Eiffel, an adjustable 400m² space for holding receptions and meetings. All the hotel’s rooms and suites, in addition to the Gustave Eiffel cupola, were renovated in a spirit of Belle Epoque romanticism with all the comforts of modern technology. These renovations highlighted the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo‘s attractive features, appealing to and creating loyalty in family and business leisure customers.
