Columbus Monaco is the French Rivera's chic and boutique hotel owned by Formula One Star David Coulthard. More than a hotel, the Columbus and its leisure & business tourism complex are a destination in their own right and offering luxury bedrooms, brasserie and swimming pool in the famous playground of Monte Carlo. In the Fontvieille area of Monaco, a 6 minute helicopter ride or a 30 minute car ride from the Nice Airport, the Columbus Monaco is located in the Princess Grace Rose Garden. It is 2 minutes away from the heliport and 5 minutes away from the Place du Casino and from the famous rock of Monaco.

Created by award-winning interior designer Amanda Ross (owner is Formula One star David Coulthard), the 'Riviera Chic' style of the hotel features in all 153 bedrooms and 28 suites, all fully equipped with an interactive TV system with infrared cordless computer keyboard, dual phone lines with direct modem access, CD stereo system and Playstation, mini bar stocked with premium brand miniatures and snacks, hairdryer, personal safe, iron and ironing board and air-conditioning. Bathrooms feature shower powers, large baths and toiletries created exclusively for Columbus Monaco. Adjacent to the lobby, the heart and soul of the hotel, the foxy bar and the trendy brasserie have already become two of the coolest drinking and dining spots on the Cote d'Azur. The Columbus Boutique provides great gift ideas, international press and items used to decorate the contemporary bedrooms. Other facilities include Le Studio, a state-of-the-art 90-seat auditorium, two private rooms, an ultra high-tech fitness center and access to the art deco outdoor pool.

Option number two, a helicopter flies you to Saint Tropez for a day of sand and stars in true “Tropezian” style. Or for those who prefer bronzing on board a motor or sailing yacht, the Columbus Monaco has developed an exclusive partnership with boat charterers The Yacht Corporation.

Columbus, a cutting edge business tourism destination
More than a hotel, the Columbus Monaco and its business tourism complex are a destination in their own right. Le Studio is a state-of-the-art auditorium that can be easily extended, creating a flexible capacity of 20 to 200 people. Other unique venues are readily available in a 500 meter radius around the hotel. The nearby Fontvieille Circus Tent can be used as an extension of the Columbus, and the World Trade Centre can also provide specific facilities in close proximity to the hotel.

The Columbus, an ultra modern destination for business events.
Presentations, conferences and preview screenings are all regular events on the Mezzanine floor.

A choice of rooms
Le Studio is a multi-purpose conference and presentation centre that opened its doors in January 2002 on Level 00, otherwise known as the Mezzanine Floor. Designed by Scottish interior designer Amanda Rosa, winner of the 2001 Andrew Martin International Designer award, the premises combine luxury, comfort and technology, and can be reserved on a daily or half-daily basis. Equipped with a 3 m by 2.40 m rear projection screen and 90 leather covered chairs with fold-away writing tables – which tier away to the rear for maximum screen visibility – Le Studio offers the very latest in state-of-the-art technology. The facilities also enjoy a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. The spacious terrace opening on to the Princess Grace Rose Garden is ideal for coffee breaks.

Videoconferences can be fully controlled from the presentation desk and broadcast around the world via dedicated ISDN data lines. Video or digital images can be screened using a new generation, high resolution digital projector.
"Like the Columbus Monaco, Le Studio was designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts and is a venue in its own right. The design, staff and technology are all state-of-the-art”, says Ken McCulloch, the Hotel’s co-owner and creator of the concept.

Salon 1, 2 and 3
Also on the mezzanine floor, two function rooms designed by Amanda Rosa can host between 20 and 40 people for private cocktails and/or dinners, receptions and business meetings. Salon 3 was opened on September 26th 2005 in place of the hotel’s Room Service department. This new Boardroom is an ideal addition to the Conference Centre. Designed in the same style as the rest of the establishment, it is a more confidential room for smaller groups (Capacity: 15 people, bespoke services). The entire business facilities (Le Studio and Salons 1 and 2) are lit by natural sunlight and are used year-round by major international companies in the fashion, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, finance, automobile, telecoms and hi-tech sectors etc.

Result: The Columbus Monaco is a luxury alternative to the traditional Monte-Carlo hotels, it combines accessibility, affordability, style and elegance.
