IS ROOM SERVICE INCLUDED?

Byline: Hollywood Reporter

Even for those willing to fork over more than $3,000 a night for a hotel room, the inn is full at Hollywood-on-the-Med.

A bit earlier than usual, the luxurious Hotel du Cap at Cap d'Antibes this week put up the ``complet'' (full up) sign. Six miles along the French coastline from the city of Cannes, it is home to the very top stars, executives and producers attending the Cannes International Film Festival.

Many of the hotel's regular American, European and Asian visitors have been told there are no rooms available, despite prices as high as 8,000 French francs ($3,150) a night (it's more if you want a TV). Those who are lucky enough to get one of the 120 rooms or 10 suites must be prepared to settle their bill in cash; the Hotel du Cap does not take credit cards.

``We are very much in demand this year and we are having to say non to many regular customers,'' said a spokeswoman.

It is not hard to see the appeal. For the wealthy, and those who have their bill paid by a major studio or corporation, the sedate, private hotel on the tip of the small peninsula of the Cap d'Antibes offers a luxurious haven from the noise and mobs on the Cannes Croisette.
