Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel Métropole

4 av. de la Madone, , 98005, Monaco Fodor's Choice

This Belle Époque hotel, set on land that once belonged to Pope Leon XIII, has pulled out all the stops in its decor—famed Paris designer Jacques Garcia has given the rooms his signature hyper-aristocratic look and Karl Lagerfield is the architect behind The Odyssey pool and lounge; it also has the unique distinction of housing two Michelin-starred restaurants. Christophe Cussac runs the open kitchen day to day at the impeccable two-star Joël Robuchon Monte-Carlo and Yoshi, his one-star sushi eatery. If you don't want a full-blown meal, lighter food is served all day in the super-hip bar. At Espa you can indulge in an age-defying facial or one of the other signature treatments.
