This hotel is a landmark in Marseille. The service and quality are top notch, making it a great value as well, particularly by European standards.
I highly recommend the breakfast: served Buffet style with an excellent selection and service.
The rooms were clean and spacious and the bedding was very comfortable. There is ample closet space, and a nicely-sized bathroom. The location is also fantastic, looking down a promenade to the harbor.
We got a room on the North side of this hotel--the area without the view--which was an excellent value. Really surprising. Of course, if you want the best view, you'll have to look toward the harbor. The pool is indoor, pretty, but remote and difficult to find. There is a wonderful lounging area with a spectacular view above the hotel entrance, like a mezzanine.
I'd recommend a taxi to and from the train station as it is much more convenient. We could easily walk to many good restaurants, but it is about a 10 minute walk to the metro station. Most guests staying here are not metro-riders, but we did not experience snobby staff or fellow guests.
The concierge staff was very helpful.
