Dreamily tucked a long France’s Mediterranean Côte d’Azur, Nice has long held a glamorous reputation; 19th-centuy aristocrats and modern jet-setters alike have sought solitude (and sun) here. The capital of the French Riviera, this decadent city curves around the Bay of Angels, giving it a unique beauty. Pretty pebbled beaches, abundant sunshine, a charming old town and excellent markets all add to the captivating mix and make Nice a dreamy choice for a luxe European escape.
In the city’s downtown sits AC Hotel Nice by Marriott, just moments from the shoreline, on the famous Promenade des Anglais. This choice address puts you within easy reach of main attractions, but before you head out for some gallery-hopping, window-shopping or sunbathing, you may want to enjoy some time at your hotel. There’s a heated swimming pool and a rooftop restaurant serving Mediterranean fare and regional wines, with a side of glorious city views.
The sleek and modern Classic rooms measure 269 square feet. Light woods and a palette of cream and beige create a homey ambience, while soundproofed windows promise a quiet night’s sleep.
There are a range of breakfast options on offer to suit your plans, including grab-and-go, buffet and full American, all available in the breakfast room. The AC Lounge serves local delights as appetizers and snacks, while the Rooftop 360 Terrace Restaurant and Lounge offers striking views over the city, plus delicious Mediterranean dishes and a good selection of regional wines (open May to September, depending on the weather).
Located in downtown Nice, the hotel lies on the Promenade des Anglais, putting you within walking distance of the city’s shops, bars, restaurants and cultural sights. Many of Nice’s museums are just a short walk away, including the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Nice, which houses works by Monet and Rodin, and Massena Museum, where you’ll find Napoleon’s death mask. The waterfront is just a stone’s throw away.
How to Get There
We arrived early - 10.30am but the receptionist was wonderful and let us have a room early.
The hotel is great. The rooms were good. Very clean. Roomy and comfortable. The bathroom was nice too. Great coffee and tea making facilities.
The only complaint I have is that our two beds (joined together) were sunken, a big dip in the middle. The pillows were too soft. I didn’t have a great sleep during the four nights we stayed.
The receptionists were all very friendly and helpful. They were also knowledgable.
The breakfast was great.
The hotel has a added bonus that it is near a tram stop. The tram comes from the airport to literally walking distance of the hotel. €1.50 from the airport to the hotel.
We stayed here for a week and found the hotel to be very modern and clean with good lighting in both the bedroom and bathroom. Everyone in reception was very pleasant. Just a few steps from the Promenade, but a little further away from the old town and the station than anticipated. However, that was not a problem. We stayed earlier this year in AC Marriott in Palma and found it to be very good, so one of the reasons we chose this hotel. Unfortunately, here we only got water in the room on arrival, whereas in Palma we got it every day.
Spent 5 nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. Loved the room with the view onto the promenade and sea, found the location convenient, and enjoyed the breakfast buffet. Used the valet parking service and it worked well.
Filippo did an exceptionally wonderful job as concierge/receptionist/helper in need. All staff was very friendly. The rooftop was fabulous. Another AC Hotel that did not disappoint.
Will definitely return.
