A look back at the highlights of 2023 at Hotel West End
The year 2023 is drawing to a close, giving way to a new year that promises even more exciting projects for the Hôtel West End. Indeed, this year has been full of events and news for the 4-star establishment, which is a member of 3A Hôtels La Collection. Here’s a look back at the highlights of 2023!
The year 2023 got off to a flying start for the West End hotel, which was awarded the Green Key label – the 1st ecolabel for tourist accommodation in France – after implementing a number of eco-responsible measures to reduce the impact of its activities on the environment. This distinction is the culmination of a number of important changes initiated within the hotel, such as better management of its water, electricity and waste consumption. The hotel also runs awareness-raising campaigns among its staff and guests to share its Green Attitude. In addition to this label, the hotel has also teamed up with Alchimistes, specialists in the recycling of food waste, to collect almost 3,000 kg of bio-waste, which is then transformed into compost.
Another highlight of the year: Pink October! For the 5th year running, the hotel has got involved in the campaign to raise awareness of the fight against breast cancer by offering a special package in the colours of the operation. What’s more, 25% of the cost of each stay booked was donated to the SOS Cancer du Sein association. This raised a total of €7904.
The hotel is no stranger to supporting a good cause! Once again this year, to help the underprivileged at Christmas, the hotel organised a toy collection for Secours Populaire des Alpes-Maritimes, open to the general public. Last year, more than 1,500 toys were collected thanks to this operation, known as Les Pères Noël Verts.
But the West End is also synonymous with cultural and artistic events. In 2023, the Festival Objectif Vidéo Nice (OVNI) once again took over the walls of the hotel, inviting artists to take over the rooms, windows and communal areas with their contemporary video works!
Last but not least, the now unmissable – and equally unusual – Opera evenings have returned to the hotel’s restaurant, Le Siècle. Based on the concept of singing waiters, these themed evenings are open to locals and visitors alike, who can enjoy a delicious menu prepared by the hotel’s Chef, Cyril Breteau, while listening to the greatest opera arias performed by two local artists.
See you in 2024 for more highlights!
