Marmont Heritage Hotel
The Marmont Hotel is located at the very heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean named Split. This 1700 year old Diocletian’s Palace, a unique World Heritage Site under UNESCO`s protection, takes great pride in its city center. The Roman emperor, Diocletian, was very meticulous in his study of the vast coast of Dalmatia, before deciding on the utmost perfect spot for his palace. Its location, in the very center of Split, makes the Marmont Hotel an ideal destination for tourism as well as business. Visitors enjoy the convenience of being only minutes away from the most prominent city locations, sights and travel terminals: Riva, Peristyle, Prokurative, the Marmont Street, St Duje`s Cathedral, the City Port, the Bus and the Train Station.
The French General, Marmont, was once an instigator of great change and progress in Dalmatia, and the Marmont Hotel decided to follow in his footsteps when it comes to tourist accommodation in the city of Split. They abide by the same motto, "always and forever change things for the better!" Auguste Frédéric Louis Viesse de Marmont (Châtillon sur Seine, 20 July 1774 - Venice, 22 March 1852) was a French general and a marshal, who was transferred to Dalmatia in 1805 where he assumed the duty of the military governor of Dalmatia and the governor-general of Illyrian Provinces. He turned out to be a very beneficent governor, and thanks to his efforts, a lot was done for the transportation improvement of Dalmatia (roads through Dalmatian hinterland) and education (introduction of Croatian and Slovenian to schools) with the issuing of the first newspapers in Croatian Kraglski Dalmatin.
With its true spirit of Mediterranean; a blend of traditional, modern and luxurious, Hotel Marmont is the perfect choice for all those wanting to experience the authentic Split in the palm of their hands, and to fully experience Split's cultural heritage and the relaxed way of life, without giving up on the luxury and top level design. Hotel Marmont was named after the French general and Marshal, August Frédéric Marmont, who during 19th century significantly contributed to building the first roads in Dalmatia. Despite his role as a conqueror, he began the process of urbanization of Dalmatian cities, and in thanks, the citizens of Split named the most beautiful street in all of Split after him.
