75th Monaco Grand Prix - Celebrate Behind The Wheel

March 11, 2017 -

As Monaco gears up for the 75th anniversary of The Grand Prix, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, located directly above the slowest and most dangerous turn on the track, provides guests with the best views of the race from the Dom Pérignon Lounge, guest room balconies and outdoor terrace of the Michelin-starred Restaurant Joël Robuchon.

The hotel’s most spectacular view comes from behind the wheel of an F1 racecar, which guests can experience through Metropole’s Get Dizzy With Speed Package.

This exclusive “Just For You” experience puts guests in the driver’s seat of an F1 racecar, where they zoom from 0 to 186 mph in less than three seconds. To ensure a smooth ride around the Circuit du Luc track in Provence, guests first take a workshop led by a certified Formula 1 driver.

Drive Monaco’s Grand Prix Track:

Exclusively offered through Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo’s “Just For You” programming, the Get Dizzy With Speed package puts guests behind the driver’s seat of a F1 racecar as they maneuver the turns of the famed Circuit du Luc track in Provence. To ensure a safe and smooth ride, guests don professional equipment and take a workshop led by a certified Formula 1 driver. Coupled with an overnight stay in the Suite Carré d’Or, the experience starts at $13,814.

Located in the Golden Square of the Principality of Monaco, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is ideally situated within walking distance to the famous Monte-Carlo Casino. The hotel is known for its four Joël Robuchon restaurants (including his first Japanese venue) and the ODYSSEY outdoor pool haven designed by Karl Lagerfeld as well as the signature “Just For You” program of bespoke experiences that showcase the best of Monaco – from F1 racing along the Grand Prix track to backstage access at Ballet de Monte-Carlo. Located on the French Riviera, guests can visit three countries within one day: lunch in Italy, dinner in France and drinks in Monaco – all easily accessible from Hotel Metropole.

Originally constructed in 1889, Hotel Metropole was fully renovated in 2004 by famous French designer Jacques Garcia. Featuring 126 rooms and suites reimagined with modern touches while maintaining classical, warm Mediterranean architecture and décor, Hotel Metropole emanates sophistication, glamour and classic charm. Since its opening, the hotel has attracted an international and elite clientele, ranging from high-level businessmen and celebrities to royalty and aristocrats.
