Reopening: March 26, 2021
Hôtel du Palais closed its doors last October 2019 to continue the on-going renovation to further enhance the majesty and elegance of this exceptional establishment, while conserving the spirit of its prestigious 19th-century design and architecture. Hôtel du Palais was originally the imperial summer residence that Napoleon III had built in 1855 as a token of love for his wife Empress Eugenie.
Inspired by its glorious history and respectful of its traditions, the restoration will add a refined elegant polish to the hotel. The Hotel du Palais overlooks the magnificent Biarritz Beach. It is part one of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt and the 31 "Palace de France".
The spirit of Napoleon III is present in all the 56 Suites and 86 rooms. Unique furnishings, rare paintings and refined tapestries afford a timeless charm, steeped with history. The decoration of the venue has remained intact to the delight of art enthusiasts.
