History

Construction of the Fairmont Monte Carlo started in the early 1970s on the ground of Monaco’s first train station. The design solution for incorporating this enormous hotel in such a small principality was to build it overhanging the Mediterranean coast – resulting in its unique architecture. In August 1975, Princess Grace inaugurated the opening of the hotel, then named the Loews Monte Carlo.

In November 1998, a private consortium headed by Monegasque businessman Toufic Aboukhater bought the Loews Monte Carlo and renamed it the Monte Carlo Grand Hotel. Since then, the hotel has undergone a further name change. In collaboration with the Grimaldi Forum, it continues to attract high-profile business tourism, as well as leisure tourists.
