The present hotel is the result of the merger of the former hôtel Beau-Rivage and two neighbouring villas. Construction began in 1923 under the leadership of architect Théo Petit, who was also the architect of the hôtel Normandy in Deauville. He produced an art deco design with the main façade and two rear wings, but only the east wing and the main body were finished when the hotel opened in 1926. The rest of the central body of the building was extended in 1928 by the architects Charles Nicod and Émile Molinié. At this point, the interiors were also redecorated by Maurice Debenedetti. Two floors were added to the top of the building in 1965 and in 1990 the façades were rebuilt uniformly in their original art deco style.
