to ban plastic straws. The Hotel Metropole-Monte-Carlo is proud to announce a pledge to prohibit the use of plastic straws. This action reaffirms the Hotel’s commitment to reduce plastic waste, and specifically the hazards to marine life caused by conventional plastic straws.

“We are continually looking for means to reduce the environmental impact of our hotel and banning the use of plastic straws in our bars and restaurants represents a significant step in this direction. This is just one out of many initiatives we are working on to minimize the use of plastic in our hotel. However, in order to maintain the quality standards of the beverages served to our customers, some cocktails will keep PLA straws – a fully biodegradable material” says Serge Ethuin, General Manager of Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo.

Legacy of Green Attitude

Since 2007, The Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has established an environmental policy called “Green Attitude” whose main objective is to reduce the impact of its activity on the planet and preserve biodiversity. This commitment was formalized in various charters and open to all: employees, suppliers, subcontractors, and seeks to educate its customers.

For this, the Metropole Hotel has started selecting sorting:

  • recycling water and energy
  • increased its green purchasing
  • obtained environmental certifications
  • organized training and created a “Green Committee” composed of staff members
    from different services.

The Hotel Metropole gives priority to suppliers who share these values, inviting them to implement a responsible and sustainable purchasing policy.

The “Green Attitude” has developed considerably and is now part of the Hotel Metropole corporate culture.

About Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo
Ideally situated in the Carré d’Or, within walking distance of the Casino, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The sumptuous Belle Epoque property was built in 1889. It was fully renovated in 2004 by famous French designer Jacques Garcia, who transformed it into a palace of 126 rooms and suites with a Mediterranean charm in keeping with its era, combining glamour, sophistication and sensoriality. Three restaurants, run by Joël Robuchon and Christophe Cussac, offer a unique and varied culinary experience for the discerning palate. With two Michelin stars, “Restaurant Joël Robuchon Monte-Carlo” specializes in refined dishes with Mediterranean flavours. “Yoshi”, Joël Robuchon’s only Japanese restaurant in the world, has one Michelin star and offers traditional Japanese cuisine in a bold and contemporary setting designed by Didier Gomez. Finally, Joël Robuchon’s third restaurant “Odyssey” unveils its charming setting by the pool, with an Haute Couture décor designed by Karl Lagerfeld, and a menu inspired by the Mediterranean that celebrates fresh seasonal produce and light cuisine.

In collaboration with the House of Givenchy, the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo is proud to announce the opening of the new Spa Metropole by Givenchy since April 2017. Designed by architect Didier Gomez and beautifully integrated into this luxury hotel, the new Spa Metropole by Givenchy embodies the same philosophy shared in the House’s venues: exceptional location, luxurious spaces, sophisticated care treatments, and absolute pleasure and well-being.
