This Belle Epoque grand dame of a hotel is steps from the Casino de Monte-Carlo and overlooks the infamous hairpin turn of Monaco’s Formula 1 Grand Prix track. Rooms are spacious, and most overlook the cypress-lined driveway. If you’re feeling spendy, the Jacques Garcia-designed Carré d’Or suite has Louis XVI furniture, sumptuous crimson and lilac interior fabrics, and sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea and Metropole’s popular pool.

Among the finest hotels along the French Riviera, the colorful stucco-clad Byblos opened its doors in 1967 and has since been a favorite destination for celebrities and the global jet set. Unlike some other hotels in the area, it’s easily walkable to the village, including the Places des Lices market. The hotel is also home to Les Caves du Roy, one of the world’s best nightclubs, and makes a mean tarte tropézienne, a classic French pastry that originated in the village and was a favorite of Brigitte Bardot.
