“Best rooftop in Nice...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Upside: location is just off promenade des Anglais, all-over design is contemporary with calm colours, cleanliness all through, rooftop swimming pool is the best feature, breakfast room is quite pleasant with a rich food selection.

Downside: one of the two elevator was not operational during our stay which was quite annoying, when we checked in at 7pm, no-one was around to help with the luggage, so we had to drive to the basement parking and struggle with 4 suitcases.

Room Tip: We had a room with a back city view. But rooftop views would compensate.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We stayed two nights in the hotel. It is very well situated, clean, and the staff is very friendly.
The room was a junior suite number 118 at 899€ the night and we would have expected complete silence with such a rate. But the elevator dedicated to the staff was just behind and very noisy. We could not sleep very well because of that,
We left the room at 3PM and when we were back late in the night, cleaning was not done, no paper in the toilets and no new towels.
We had two breakfasts offered when we complained the day after.
Globally a good hotel but with such high rates maybe we can expect silence and perfect service, so can be improved.

Room Tip: Not closed to the staff elevator !

This hotel is located very close to the main beach promenade. Majority of restaurants and the old city centre is about 1km walk away. Hotel is very clean, and has a parking hall (for an extra fee 20e/d).

Breakfast was really good - also special diet (gluten free) was considered and special bread offered each day at no extra cost. Breakfast itself was 21e/d.

We stayed at this Marriott using points as a one night stop over after flying into Nice and driving to Italy the next day.. It is very convenient to airport, beach, shops, and restaurants. The hotel had a nice new appeal and was clean. Staff was very helpful although no valet available-however private parking ($30.00) was convenient and secure. We enjoyed the roof top pool and bar but chose to eat at a waterfront restaurant. We also found a little bakery/cafe in the AM just around the corner for croissants, bread, quiche, and bottled water at very reasonable costs.

Marriott has taken over management of the AC chain. The style is ultra modern and not so appealing to us. The location is near the beach, however, the beach was nothing like the Delaware beaches we are accustomed to. Very rocky and not very inviting. It was similar to most Mediterranean beaches we have visited. Nice is busy and an active city. We did day trips to surrounding, within one hour drive time, towns. The food was OK, nothing special. We found the food in the south of France disappointing when compared to the north. We were initially given an unsatisfactory room and then miraculously upgraded to a junior suite which was a vast improvement.
We suspect that Marriott will improve the service, look, and feel of the facility.

This was my third visit to the AC. The reason for my return is really it's location and roof top pool. The added bonus is a beautiful refurb in the last year and improved pool side restaurant. I really don't think you can find much better than this place if you want a pool. Yes there are beautiful little boutique hotels here but after a mornings mooching in town we like to relax by the pool. Breakfast was included in our deal but have also stayed without the breakfast included and had breakfast on route into the centre. Speaking of the breakfast, it was lovely but wouldn't pay extra for it. You are a hop and a skip from the sea and the promenade de anglais. It's a good 20 mins walk into the centre but we don't mind a slow walk. Try walking behind the promenade as there's lots of little shops and this is where you will always see the real Nice going about their lives. Flower market a must as is the walk to the top of the view point, never know what it's called but you must do this the view is awesome. Lift to the top is free too. We always eat so well in Nice thanks to TA , so do some research but if you enjoy a bit of light jazz in an intimate lil bar try Jam, another great find! Also no 98 bus straight to the AC is great € 6. Book and enjoy!

This AC Hotel was everything and more than we expected when we arrived in Nice. Great location close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Although we had our own car, it never moved from the hotel car park the whole time we were there. No need to drive anywhere. Walking to the centre of Nice was a 10 minute stroll from the hotel. Our room was a sea view although the hotel itself is side-on to the beach. The pool on the rooftop of the hotel was on the small side but quite big enough for a dip. We ate out most nights but did sample the food at the rooftop bar which was very good. The breakfasts were good and convenient but a bit overpriced. I think thats my only negative about the place. I will definitely come back to this hotel.
