Chloe Best

Many of Hollywood's elite have descended upon the French Riviera for Cannes Film Festival, debuting their new film projects and creating many memorable red carpet moments along the way. But where do the likes of Emily Ratajkowski and Leonardo DiCaprio stay when they're not hitting the latest premieres or cruising on luxury yachts in the Mediterranean? These are some of the Cannes hotels that celebrities love.

Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc


One of the most famous hotels in Cannes is Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, which hosts a number of star-studded parties such as the amfAR benefit and De Grisogono jewellery party, as well as providing accommodation to a number of A-Listers during the film festival. Emily Ratajkowski and Coco Rocha are among the famous faces to have shared photos from the iconic venue during the 2017 festival, while Leonardo DiCaprio, Kendall Jenner, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have all stayed at the luxury hotel in the past.

This 106-year-old hotel has a rich history having played host to stars including Grace Kelly - and was the venue for the actress' first date with Prince Rainer during Cannes Film Festival. Nowadays you're more likely to see the likes of Jessica Chastain in the Belle Epoque building, which has a private beach and terraces with sea views and is located just 900 yards from the Palais des Festivals, the venue where the prestigious film festival takes place.
