This 4-star hotel, part of the Warwick Collection, has a fine setting right in the heart of Nice. It’s been welcoming guests to the French Riviera since 1883, who come for the comfortable surrounding and convenient location, a short walk to many of the main attractions and just 7km from Nice International Airport.
The serene and atmospheric Spa Splendid uses Decléor luxury products to provide massages and treatments galore. There are three treatment cabins – one a double – a Jacuzzi, hammam and relaxation room for guests to enjoy.
There are 128 elegant rooms and suites, all with large windows, air-conditioning, free wifi, minibar and satellite TV. Many also have a balcony or terrace. Guests can choose from harmonie, deluxe and family rooms or splash out on one of the suites, each with a separate living room. Biggest of all are the presidential suites – honeymooners will enjoy the romantic starry ceiling in one.
Up on the roof, you’ll find a rooftop pool and whirlpool bath (open April to October), surrounded by loungers and with stunning views over Nice and out to the Alps. And if you want to keep up your exercise regime, the hotel has a fitness corner. If Nice’s famous beaches are the draw, ask at the hotel as guests receive discounted access to private beaches at various partner hotels. You’re close to the Promenade des Anglais – a stroll along is a must – as well as tourist attractions such as the casino, modern art museum, and the Old Town.
The 8th-floor L’Essenciel Restaurant & Bar offers brasserie-style cooking based on the freshest local, organic ingredients and with panoramic views, whether you choose a table on one of the three rooftop terraces or within the restaurant, with its large windows.
