Set on a palm tree-lined street, just off the seafront and La Croisette, the Hotel Gray d'Albion is a good option for budget-conscious travellers in the pricey city of Cannes.
Part of the renowned Lucien Barrière group and is popular with both sightseers and business travellers due to its excellent city-centre location, a 5-minute walk from the upmarket shops on the Rue d'Antibes.
During festivals and trade fairs the hotel hosts 38 The Place, a fine-dining French restaurant where the cuisine is "simple yet refined" (Frommer's), and Jane’s Bar is open daily for cocktails. On Thursday and Friday evenings (6-10pm), DJs spin lounge music for locals and guests alike.
There's also a relaxed beach restaurant, which serves a light Lebanese and Mediterranean menu from noon until 4pm (April-October). The hotel's private beach, just at the end of the road, is open from April to October.
Rooms are sleek and most have balconies, although sea views don't come as standard. Opt for an Executive Room on the 8th- and 9th-floor for superior vistas and free access to the hammam, sauna and fitness room. Eight exclusive suites are twice as big as standard rooms and face the Mediterranean.
