The Hotel Negresco in Nice is located on the Promenade des Anglais. Eccentric dancer, Isadora Duncan, died on the promenade in 1927, – by many accounts right outside the hotel.

She was wearing a long silk scarf, as was the fashion in the 1920s, when she and a companion drove off – and famously, her scarf was caught in the rear wheels of the car. This strangled the dancer and ejected her dead body from the vehicle.

(Just a little weird history.)

The hotel opened in 1913 and has a chequered history. It was intended to be the ultimate in luxury accommodation but shortly after opening, it was requisitioned during the First World War as a hospital.
