The Formula 1 Grand Prix is the most anticipated event of the Principality. Every year on the last weekend of May, more than 200,000 people from all around the world gather in Monaco to watch the race cars run at an incredible speed in the narrow streets of the city. For many aficionados, the heart-thumping action relating to what is the most important sport car event in Monaco, is best experienced from the balconies of the famous Fairmont Monte-Carlo.
Developed initially by American gaming and hospitality corporation, Loews, and inaugurated by H.S.H. Princess Grace of Monaco in 1975, the hotel changed hands several times until its management was acquired by Canadian firm Fairmont in 2004. Thanks to its perfect location and disposition, Fairmont Monte-Carlo offers some of the best views on the track, especially on the hairpin bend, coined the “Fairmont Hairpin” by all TV commenters. One of the most exciting and challenging bends of the F1 championship, it forces cars to slow down and fight to overtake each other. It is one of the rare moments during the F1 calendar when spectators can capture the emotions and the adrenaline from the eyes of the pilots.
A typical Fairmont Monaco “Grand Prix offer” includes accommodation for a 4-night minimum stay, a daily buffet breakfast, access to the rooftop terrace (host to world-famous party spot Nikki Beach during the warmer seasons) and special Grand Prix welcome amenities.
All year long, Fairmont Monte-Carlo is also a unique four-star luxury convention resort, located in the heart of the city. Besides being one of the most prestigious hotels of the Principality, Fairmont Monte-Carlo is also one of the largest in Europe, and the biggest in the French Riviera, with nearly 600 guest rooms, residences and suites. It has four restaurants and bars including world-famous Nobu, a fitness centre, a Willow Stream Spa (Fairmont’s household brand) offering exclusive wellness facilities and programs, a shopping arcade and an in-house casino. As one of the largest facilities dedicated to professional meetings and conventions in Monaco, Fairmont Monte-Carlo is designed to host both an executive meeting for 10 people or a professional conference for up to 900. The famous ballrooms “Salle de la Mer” and “Salle d’Or”, not to forget the roof terrace set between the Mediterranean sea and the Casino de Monte-Carlo, shall meet the needs of the largest groups, in the respect of the most stringent sanitary measures which characterize Monaco and its MonacoSafe certification.
From traditional designed menus to innovative contemporary cuisine, Fairmont Monte-Carlo’s culinary and catering team has established its reputation in Monaco and beyond, creating tailor-made events with sustainably sourced and authentically local ingredients. It should also be noted that Fairmont Monte-Carlo enjoys the convenience of being at a 5-minute walkable distance from the Grimaldi Forum Monaco where a lot of international congresses take place.
