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.

Wish movies were in English and needed more viewing options, like YouTube, Netflix and internet. Otherwise everything was great and room had excellent views. I will definitely stay at this location again and would suggest others do the same.

We stayed her in Mid May overlooking the Mediterranean. great for a stroll along the sea.
1 block in other direction is a beautiful lane of no cars and only shops and restaurants. Waked there very day at least once. close to shopping and transportation.

Great location. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Room very nice and quiet for sleeping. Requested very early morning taxi from concierge and the taxi was waiting for us when we entered to lobby.
Very nice hotel

Amazing Ocean View and Accommodation
Reviewed 3 days ago

Our upgraded executive room was very nicely decorated and functional. Beds were extremely comfortable and offered amazing views, when the curtains were open. There was no street noise thanks to the double sets of windows (we were on the fourth floor). Great view of the pool and the ocean from the balcony. Staff were helpful, especially the doormen and concierge service. Turndown service was greatly appreciated, but twice arrived a little too early and forgot to come back later on one occasion.
Walking along the promenade every day was a joy and easy to get our 10,000 steps in with a view. Many great restaurants with heated patios (eg., Franchin, Cafe de France) are just around the corner and worth trying. Dining in the third floor restaurant was also enjoyable, albeit a touch expensive, even with the discounts available when booking on-line on the Fork. Be sure to check this out when making dinner reservations. We had breakfast included with our package which was quick, easy and tasty. As another reviewer has mentioned, coffee seemed a bit weak and tasteless. Lattes made form the specialty coffee machine were easy and tasted great.
The hotel concierge service offers tours (using a company called Liven Up). We booked the afternoon art /garden tour which we both loved. Turned out there was only three of us last week, which felt like a private tour (at a group tour price).

Welcoming reception, very helpful concierge staff who were very eager to ensure we get satisfying restaurant recommendation and safe journey. Good breakfast quality though could increase their staff capacity during peak hours. Bell captain and staff at entrance choose the guests they seem to prefer to greet. Overall, pleasant stay.
