We visited the hotel when visiting monaco for the tennis. We found the hotel was in a great location, & all the staff seemed really well trained. Nothing was too much trouble.
Ask for a room overlooking the small marina, great view from the balcony.

Highlights for review of the Marriott Riviera:
Plusses: * Fantastic location. Only about 2km from the heart of Monte Carlo. You can actually walk to Monte Carlo and do not need to take a cab as often indicated. It takes about 15-20 minutes and involves aking an outdoor escalator. Bike/Walk path just 100m from the front door and offers a great way to exercise in the morning or evening.
* Views are really great if you have a room facing the Mediterranean Sea. It overlooks the harbor and yacht club and is a nice way to unwind in the evening.
* Friendly and helpful staff. Also, free internet that is available in the common areas.
* Free breakfast makes for a good start to the day, and offers a wide selection.
Drawbacks:
* No drawbacks to the hotel. My experience was very positive.
A few comments about the area:
* I recommend taking a public bus from the Nice airport and not taking a cab. The difference in cost is about 70 Euros ($100), and only take about 20 minutes longer. I made the mistake of taking a cab because the driver offered in a thick French accent to take me for nineteen euros (so I thought). Once we arrived at the Marriott, his accent cleared up and he indicated it was not nineteen but ninety euros. Big difference in price, so please do not make that mistake. I took the bus on my departure and it was timely, efficient, and much less expensive.
* There are fantastic landscape photos across the Nice to Monaco segment, so definitely recommend walking portions of that. I walked the entire distance (about 8 hour walk) and got some really awesome pictures. Walk around the peninsula called Saint-Jean-Cap Ferrat as it is absolutely beautiful.
* The art museums in Nice (Matisse and Chagall) are not that impressive. I am an art enthusiast and like the work of these two artists but the museums are not worth your time.
* Climb to the top of Castle Hill, as you have some nice views of the city, Sea and surrounding area.
* Eat at the 'Beef Bar' along the water just about 0.5km from the hotel. It sits under the Monaco castle, and so has fantastic ambiance. The best steak I have ever eaten, and the bottle of Malbec was the perfect complement. Do not pass up the opportunity to eat there - it is a bit expensive but you will have a great meal and experience.

I had a room on the harbor side with a great view and a balcony. Sitting up there you can just relax and read a book over a glass of wine. The downstairs area had a restaurant that is open air. The location itself is nice as well and a walk to the palace doesn't take much time at all. The distance is short, but its the switchback roads and the inclines that will slow you down.

Room Tip: See if your company has a corporate rate.

Chose this hotel because of location and it couldn't have been better. It was beautiful, clean and right in the middle of where you could really go anywhere. I have to say that it was Philippe that made the stay over the top. I emailed the hotel before and he responded and helped us get to the hotel from the airport. We were celebrating a special occassion and I have to say after meeting him I realized he takes his job seriously and will go above and beyond to make your stay the best. Even when the maid service didn't make up the extra bed and it was late and they had already left, he brought up a roll away bed himself and made sure it worked for us. When we were leaving he gave us information how to make getting where we needed to go easy and fun. The staff treated us so nice with a smile and just that extra something that makes you glad you chose the hotel you did. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is staying in the Monaco area.

Room Tip: WONDERFUL room that has the balcony and panaramic

Having travelled down from Dijon taking 7 1/2 hours, we were very pleased to finally get to our hotel, being a first timer to the area I was unsure with what to expect, this hotel was nicely positioned in front of Monacos many marinas, our 3rd floor room seaview room was perfect to view some stunning yachts, our room 302 was a large size and had a very big bathroom, usual refinements were in place(air con, tv, Internet, tea coffee etc) hotel had it's own car park which was ideal considering space in monte Carlo is so limited, staff were informative a special mention to Phillipe who was very informative and provided us with some welcome tips on where to go during. our stay, the hotel itself was at one end of monte Carlo so visiting the main areas meant taking the complimentary shuttle bus, otherwise getting to and from places meant a long walk!!!! and don't forget there are lots of hills!! This hotel however is a perfect base to visit Monte Carlo and id recommend here for anyone wanting to visit here for the first time.....enjoy!!!

The staff was very good - polite, informative and helpful. Cap d'ail has a nice small and homey feel, probably because it's located next to many condos. I guess you'd like this hotel if you're in it to relax in a peaceful and quiet environment.

We drove to the hotel. Big mistake. The road signs in Monaco make you want to stab yourself in the neck with an unsharpened pencil. They're small, inconsistent and we went dizzy from all the roundabouts, curvy roads and u-turns. And like what a previous reviewer said, the garage access was stupid. You've to drive around the block from the drop off point, to the garage after checking in. The messy roads make this round the block drive complicated.

Approx 20 euros for 24 hours of internet (via lan cable or wifi). Choose the cable if possible. Their wifi connection is not very strong/stable.

My wife and myself stopped in Ireland to pick up my 76 years old mother to take her with us on this, our first trip to Monte Carlo. We flew into Nice and as another reviewer said forget about finding this hotel from your "gps" because the streets are to narrow.
We had planned on staying only 3 nights and then heading up to Paris. We were in Monte Carlo to see the semi final and finals of the Rolex Tennis at MC Country Club. We booked a one bedroon suite which was plenty big and had a queen size pullout bed. The room was on the second floor overlooking the marina....with yachts bigger then some countries navy. There was work going on in the hotel as they were doing some renovations to the pool and bar area.....I'm sure they were getting ready for the Monaco Grand Prix crowd which comes into and takes over Monte Carlo in May.
The staff were a big help. The restaurant was inculded in our price and we had plenty of fresh fruit and breakfest cereals as well as an omelette station each morning.
The hotel shuttle will take you to the center on town and stops a couple of other places if you like on the way.
We picked a Marriott because we didn't want to chance another hotel and be disappointed away from home. We ended up staying in Monte Carlo an extra 2 night and scraped our plans to go to Paris and flew right back to Ireland from Nice and on to Phoenix AZ from there. Philipe and Charlotte at the front deck were most helpful and both speak excellent english.

Room Tip: Try and get an upper floor if possible.
