The original Splendid Hotel Nice opened in 1883 for the winter season,
mostly for british clients wishing to find a milder climate. It was part of the
Hotels built in the "english district" of the Croix de Marbre near the
sea where many Villas were built near the anglican and american churches.
Eugène Tschann - 1910: Amongst its first clients was the King of
Wurtemberg whose armories were transformed into the Splendid's present logo and
its proud motto "Splendid for ever". Eugène Tschann became manager in
1910, his son Henri followed in 1939. During the war the Hotel was occupied in
1942 by the Gestapo and then by the free french forces.
Henri Tschann: The elegant building did not meet modern criterias of
comfort and was demolished in 1962 with the present building reopening in 1964
at that date one of the few modern french Hotels. In 1967 it became the first
franchisee of the Sofitel chain..
Michel Tschann: The present manager, Michel Tschann, thus the 3rd
generation, holds a doctorate in law from the Nice University, and a diploma
from the Cornell Hotel school in Ithaca, NY. Since july 1999 it is no longer
associated with Sofitel to preserve its unique character and tradition.
