Overview

The Review

Stepping into the fabulous Art Deco lobby at Le Palais de la Mediterranee, you immediately get the distinct feeling that hot Parisian designer Sybille de Margerie (who was behind the Hotel de Crillon in Paris and La Palme d’Or in Cannes) got it right in Nice, too.

The decor embodies a sleek modernity that’s unmistakably Art Deco, but instead of the black and silver glam version, there’s a warm insouciance, a bit of humor and comfort to spare. Deco by way of Biedermeier, the woods are warm, the lines are sleek, and the trim is polished brass, but the colors are warm crimson, sunny yellow and that iconic blue of sunny Provence.

Most guestrooms have large balconies with views of the Baie des Anges, the hills or a lovely interior garden. Best of all, the newly redone bathrooms are spacious, with separate tubs and showers. Plus, there are ample dressing areas to prepare for a big night out, and big, comfy beds to tumble into at the end of it.

At lunchtime the “3D” menu is a hit and a bargain (approximately $35 for three courses). Adjacent is the sexy La Pingala lounge bar, which feels a bit Moroccan, with deep couches in spice colors. It offers cocktail concoctions served in miniature Deco-style shakers, with live piano music tinkling in the background.

Head to the third floor for a dip in the heated indoor-outdoor swimming pool. You can lounge inside, but when the weather’s warm snag a seat on the terrace, where you’ll feel blissfully removed from the action on the boulevard below. Aside from modern indulgences, the real treat here is the distinct look back in time, to the glamorous era when the hotel first thrived. Sure, the facade is the only relic of the 1929 design, but from a table in the candy-striped Art Deco casino, you’ll feel as though you’re at a midcentury Riviera party.

OK but does not live up to the website
Reviewed 2 days ago

Nice touches include fresh fruit and cold Evian open in the reception area - in June especially when it's hot. The room was standard, the pool doesn't look as great as the website, didn't even bother, the location is killer and the beach is awesome though I did not enter at this site but at the Radisson Blu - which has a great bar lounge restaurant on roof and was recently renovated so perfectly clean everywhere. Frankly, I would go there. You could shave off a few bucks, though at the other far end of the Promenade. Depends if you're here for the sun or the shopping. Radisson is closest to airport. Hyatt is near Vuitton and nearer to Place Massena.

Great Hotel on The Promenade des Anglais
Reviewed 3 days ago

This was the third time we have stayed at this hotel. The Bedrooms are very clean and comfortable, The bathroom has a large tub with an over shower. There is a separate WC. It is great to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room and fresh bottled water is left every day. The breakfast which can be eaten inside or outside is of very good quality. The bar area overlooks the promenade and whilst the drinks are expensive the addition of nuts and olives soften the blow a little. The majority of the staff are very pleasant and helpful. There is an indoor and outdoor pool but lack of shade outside makes sitting outside uncomfortable unless you like full sun. Will certainly return again.

Will We Ever Check In?
Reviewed 4 days ago

We saw quite a number of reviews for this property that indicated they easily accommodated an early check in.

We arrived around 09:30 and were assured our trim would be made up with priority. I just checked at 12:15 and there’s no commitment other than the room should be ready by 3:00. The desk indicated they were full tonight but my Hyatt app tells me there’s plenty of rooms available - even using the same Hyatt points that we did.

Are we lower priority because we are using points? Hard to say.

The lobby is okay. Concierge and desk are friendly.

High end hotel?
