“Nice Nice New Hotel”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 via mobile

This is a newly refurbished and name changed hotel that opened in April. It was a good choice for us and we are happy to have selected this one. OK, it is slightly further away from much of the old part of Nice and the main shopping area, but only by an extra 10 mins walking! The recent fit out was done to a high standard and the spacious room was great. We booked a 'partial' sea view and that actual view was fantastic. It is set back off the main road, but due to the park opposite (and not any buildings) there are clear lines of sight to the sea and beach. We were surprised with how much we did actually see!

The staff were very helpful both at reception and the pool bar area. Nothing was too much trouble.

So in summary, pros: Modern, very clean, good location, nice view, good facilities, great staff, nice spacious lobby in reception. Cons: 'Modern' bathroom door design leaves an off putting small gap between you and the bedroom! Wifi is extra in the rooms (but free in the reception area).

We were hesitant at first to book this, based on it been new and not much history, but really glad we did and would definitely consider going back if we are staying in Nice again...

I have stayed at all Marriott brands from JW Marriott to farfield Inn and this is by far the worst one considering what they are charging. I understand Nice is an expensive area. However, the location/quality don't do the justice. It is very close to the beach but very far from the center. It is almost at the end of the beach. The hotel is renovated very recently but very cheaply. When you walk into the room, you will be surprised with the atmosphere of the room... in a bad way...of course... The windows are small which make you feel like you're in a cheap motel. The view is disappointing so I get why Marriott didn't bother resizing the windows.

Also, if you're a Marriott platinum member, be noted that you still need to pay for the breakfast.

One nice thing is the rooftop swimming pool. It is aged but the view from the rooftop is good.

Some staff are very friendly but some still need more training.

A very nice hotel in a excellent location. Rooms, bar, garage, lobby everything is very good and the staff is very friendly and helpful and we have enjoyed our trip.
We have booked with Gala Hotel an we got after our booking a debit from around 70 Euros wich was not agreed because they have charged us in turkish Liras.

We choose this hotel because it is one of only a few with a swimming pool (I am not a beach fan), and also has plenty of sun loungers etc (unlike the much smaller number at Le Meridien which we had tried previously), although unfortunately no parasols which is a bit of a shame in the midday sun. Also there is a cocktail bar on the roof/pool terrace, although waiter service was a bit sporadic, (guess they dont do it at weekends, but was v good on weekdays) handy for poolside drinks.
The hotel is perfectly adequate, but if I was less bothered about the pool, I probably would try somewhere else. We dont bother with breakfast and prefer to pop across the road to the beach bar (Voilier Plage- lovely!) for food (vs the limited/pricy selection at the roof bar).
One of the 2 lifts has been out of order for over a year (at least since we stayed there last year) which in a large 7 floor hotel makes getting up and down a bit of a time-consuming/frustrating exercise. Not sure why they havent done anything about it (apparently they ordered the part but they have to close both lifts to fix it and havent had an opportunity...)
Location is great for beach and short walk to old town. Views from the pool terrace are stunning.

The location of the hotel is excellent, it's located right on the Promenade des Anglais, yet it isn't near any noisy streets. The windows of our room were facing a park and we had a wonderful view of the sea. The people at the reception desk were very friendly and welcoming, and even though we arrived at 9 in the morning, in spite of the fact that the check-in time is at 3, we were given vouchers for towels and offered to go sunbathing on the roof. At 12 o'clock we were told that our room is ready. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The interior design was simple but stylish. The cleaning service was excellent. Wifi in our room cost 12 euros, but it was free in the lobby, bar and on the terrace. The breakfast was amazing, but 21 euros is a bit pricey. Overall, I loved the hotel, if I ever go to Nice again I will probably stop by there again and I will definitely recommend it to my friends!

We were there for five nights. Based on our experience in other Marriott's, this is not a category 7. The hotel was as disappointing as Nice itself, however, for different reasons. The rooms are very small, no space for anything. At least the windows opened, because if they had not, you would feel like you were in a jar. No free internet connections anywhere except in the lobby. The breakfast is way overpriced, and mediocre at best. The hotel staff, especially the Front Desk employees, were friendly and helpful though. The location is pretty good too.
