Not just the location of the hotel (splendidly sited at the upper end of the Promenade des Anglais) but the location of our room. We'd paid a supplement to have a room with a sea view, and were fortunate to be given one of those on the 4th floor (407, to be precise, if you want to ask for that one, though there were others similarly well placed), not just with a sea view reaching right across the bay to the airport at the other end, but also hidden from traffic and traffic noise because of houses or apartments situated in front of and just below us. This was a bonus: I'd been expecting that the 'price' we'd have to pay for a sea view would be continuous racket coming from the 24-hour drive-by noise along the sea front - but in fact, at night, we couldn't hear anything.
In addition, the hotel was immaculate and the service almost impeccable. Occasionally the Reception staff weren't as helpful as they could have been when asked questions about railway and bus timetables; on the other hand, the Restaurant was excellent, and I'd recommend the Provencal wines there to anyone, especially the Domaine Ott.
We had a great time and would undoubtedly go back when we can next afford the kind of luxury that La Perouse offers. It was the sort of hotel that makes you believe you can afford lunch at the Negresco (which we did enjoy, by the way).
