Suite Tour - Hotel Martinez in Cannes. A tour of my Terrace Junior Suite Partial Sea View

Just in time for the Cannes Film Festival, Luxury Fred takes you on a tour of one of the Hotel Martinez's suites

Cannes is home to the world famous film festival, which started this week. The French city is also home to a few of the world's great luxury hotels. The hotels become part of the festival madness, hosting events, press launches and meetings, in addition to festival attendees. One of the city's best hotels and most popular is the stylish Hotel Martinez, known now as the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez.

The luxury hotel exudes art deco style quite authentically, it was opened in 1929 at the height of that era. The restaurant, La Palme d'Or, with two Michelin stars, is named for the film festival's big award.

I had a chance to stay in one of the hotel's cool junior suites, with a large outdoor deck. The 350-square-foot terrace had patio furniture and was a whole outdoor living space.

And here's a look at the hotel's bar and beach club Z'Plage, which includes a dock that extends into the sea.
