“Lovely hotel!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Loved the hotel! The staff were so friendly and the location was great. Just off the main promenade, which is so worth it. The breakfast was really good!

The bed was on wheels, which so annoying. The room was not completely sound proof and we could hear the people in the room next door walking on the wooden floors, or their tv.

Dear OceanGem08,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our hotel on TripAdvisor.

We are very glad you have enjoyed your stay with us and really like the fact that you told us we are a 'lovely hotel'. Also thank you for the points of improvement, we are replacing all wheels of the beds for legs at the moment to avoid any issues in the future.

Do visit us again in the future and thank you for choosing Marriott!

Kind regards,
Benno Busscher

AC Hotel (a Marriot property previously known as the Elysee Palace) has both positives and drawbacks. First, the positives: the location was unbeatable....located one building off the ocean-front drive and steps from both the beach and the amazing store-fronts of Nice. We also thoroughly enjoyed the generous breakfast each morning. Our 10 and 13 year old children loved the beautiful roof-top pool that provided an amazing panoramic view of the city of Nice and the sea. Further, the entire hotel was modern and completely updated.

Drawbacks included slow restaurant service...and I do mean slow....beyond breakfast, do yourself a favor and go to one of the lovely local restaurants located a short stroll from the hotel. The other draw-back was the odd design of the bathroom. The glass bathroom door provided no privacy whatsoever (fine if a couple traveling, I suppose) and the shower floor design allowed water to slop over the side of the shower, leaving the bathroom floor soaking wet after each shower.

For the price, I expected more.

I selected this hotel for our recent visit to Nice, specifically because it is a Marriott property. I was not disappointed. The room was very clean. The decor is contemporary and sleekly stylish. We had a room with a partial sea view and found the view to be quite lovely. The beds were comfortable with high quality linens. We did not use the hotel restaurant, as there were so many quaint and charming options within easy walking distance. The persons working at the front desk were all very helpful, courteous and professional. They assisted us with restaurant choices, reservations and transportation to the train station. One should be aware that the hotel is a good ways down the Promenade. It is still within walking distance of most Nice attractions (we walked from there to the contemporary art museum, for example, but it is a long walk. The upside is that it is very quiet in this area.

Stayed here for one night so that we could easily catch our flight back to Paris from the Nice airport.

Staff - 4 stars: The man working the front desk was polite and funny, which was very welcoming. Otherwise, not much interaction with staff.

Location - 3 stars: Close enough to the beach that you can walk to it easily (less than 5 minutes), but didn't find it nearby the really cool areas of Nice. Probably about a 20-30 minute walk to the beautiful downtown area.

Rooms - Room was just ok. Clean, but normal sized and the quality of the amenities within seemed cheap (e.g. the fake wood flooring was bubbled up in some areas). Bed was comfortable enough. Not a great view from my room, pretty much looked at another building. I'm Platinum with Marriott but as it's an AC Hotel they don't provide status upgrades (according the front desk), which was a bit disappointing.

Property - Modern decoration, but just seemed kind of cold, boring and stale. Hotel was pretty empty which played into that, but wasn't really wowed. Seemed kind of old.

Overall, it was a fine hotel for the purpose that we needed it for: Someplace closer to the Nice airport than Cannes (although not nearly as easy to get to using train/bus, had to walk a lot) to catch an early morning flight. Probably not someplace you're going to want to sit around in and bask all day.

Modern hotel, but service is okay. I ordered a spaghetti and it took forever to deliver. It took them 45 minutes. My dad has to go downstair to pick it up. There are also no tissue paper in the hotel room. Wifi is only available in the lobby and not in the room.

As gold members of Marriott, and have stayed in other AC hotels when Marriott hotels were not available, we expected a certain level of treatment. That did not happen here. We are being nickel and dimed for everything. The room was not even equipped with the normal amentities, kleenex, etc. We chose this hotel for the location. Our mistake. We will walk a bit further for better treatment. Our 3 night stay will be 1 as we move to a Marriott further away just to be treated well for our loyalty.
To be fair, front desk was friendly. It is well appointed, if you like modern.

Great hotel. Comfortable, clean, well looked after, 2 min away from beach, friendly staff. Shame pool was closed for renovations but to be fair we went in March so not really the right weather for it.

I would definitely recommend
