From its famed pink dome to a renowned art collection to the colorful décor in the newly renovated rooms and suites, the legendary Le Negresco hotel in Nice doesn’t do anything in an understated fashion—including turning 100. In celebration of its centennial, the landmark Mediterranean-facing palace that opened its doors in January 1913 and has hosted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson, is going all out. Three opulent events and a bevy of offerings mark the occasion through spring 2013. Stylish Niçois recently toasted the Negresco under the dazzling 16,309-crystal Baccarat chandelier in the hotel’s majestic Royal Salon during a cocktail gala that kicked off the festivities. Round two takes place on March 21, a lavish soiree and dinner that will pay tribute to the art and talent embodied by the hotel. For the grand finale in the spring, chefs, sommeliers, artists, designers and musicians come together for an unforgettable celebration, during which diners can feast on a special menu and sip commemorative centennial champagne at both of the hotel’s restaurants, La Rotonde and chef Jean-Denis Rieubland’s two-Michelin-star Le Chantecler. Book one of the special Centennial Packages, and a vintage automobile airport transfer will whisk you back to the days of the Belle Époque on the French Riviera.
