The façade of the Westminster

An Art Deco luxury hotel with an ideal location.

The Westminster is the only Art Deco luxury hotel on the Côte d’Opale since the destruction of the Royal Picardy in 1968. The Westminster is ideally situated in the city centre of the elegant Le Touquet resort, in the Ermitage neighbourhood, opposite the Palais de l’Europe, and not far from the rue Saint-Jean, the main shopping street. This immense 1930s hotel - a symbol of luxury - has retained all the charm of the roaring twenties, with, in particular, two wooden lifts with manual doors.
