Rated 5 out of 5 by JARGROUP Great staff make a great hotel.
Even though the weather was cold and rainy, and the travel day had been long and arduous, my energy and enthusiasm returned the moment I arrived at the Meridien Nice. The entire staff - doormen, front desk, restaurant, housekeeping - were all highly professional, friendly and helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hawk77 Enjoyed our stay
The staff was friendly, efficient and professional. The hotel location was outstanding, very close to the beach airport and tourist sites. We were given an upgrade upon check-in which was very nice. I would say that as an SPG Gold member, we did not receive any further upgrades such as reduced or free wi-fi; possible breakfast or evening snack service which we have received at other Starwood hotels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KSvaneborg High expectations
Booked a Junior suite and basically got a normal room with separate shower and bigger balcony.
The "Le Meridién" bed so well used that it should have been changed long time ago. The view from the balcony was nice. We did however enjoy the company of "George" the room service guy. I would stay at the hotel again but i would just go for a regular room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loulou Excellent hotel
This hotel is in a prime location overlooking the sea and the park to the side . We stayed for 3 days. We had dinner in the colonial restaurant on Saturday night overlooking the seafront. The food and drink is a bit on the expensive side but our meals were excellent. Also we received a complementary starter and a liqueur after our meal! All the staff from the receptionists to the bar and restaurant staff were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out if their way to assist in any way they could. Would highly recommend this hotel

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peccaviman Very quiet despite location
Great location, good food though service on the Terrace could have been better on the day, mistake with order but this can happen
Even though room was on BA, very quiet and easy to sleep
Only criticism with room is more designed as a leisure hotel, so no dedicated work space, other wise was great

Rated 5 out of 5 They nickle-dime you
I paid 300 euro for the view. Not bad. But then to pay 6 euros an hour for wifi?? And 7 euro for the orange juice in the mini bar?? And 20 euro to use the steam room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dusty Excellent staff
The staff and room service was excellent. What I feel you have to improve is the work out area it is probably one of the worst I have seen and to not have it open until 10.30 am is unacceptable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dutchie Far too expensive for what you get
From a 350 € room, one would expect more than that it's just clean and OK. I've had much nicer hotel rooms for far less money. My room had no view whatsoever (unless you call 3 walls a view). Breakfast was very plain for a hotel with this standard. Conclusion: you simply pay for the location at Promenade des Anglais. Staff is friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomtraveler Great Hotel, Beautiful Location, Amazing Staff
I stayed here on and off for a total of four nights while touring southern France. Everything about the hotel was great, from its appearance, courtesy of the staff, and SPG recognition. I would definitely recommend to others and plan on returning again myself!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Onglideslope 2 tiers of rooms.
I encouraged our firm to use this hotel as we had received nice rooms (international standard) on our previous 3 visits. As it turns out, there are two tiers of room....and the lower grade is really poor - sort of motorway service station hotel poor but older. We will not stay again when there are so many better alternatives albeit without SPG points.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Keith Be warned on Health Club Opening
The hotel advertiises that it has a health club with sauna etc. But BE WARNED IT SHUTS AT 1900!!! And when I turned up around 1815 it was clear staff were already clsoing up and did not want me to go in (which I didn't). Clearly not much good if you out all day and want to relax before dinner. A hotel of this standard should offer much longer hours for its facilities. Also, it would appear they would have charged 20 euros for use of sauna. Again this should be free to guests.

Perfect location! The hotel staffs are friendly, room is clean, and very good to see the enviromental friendly policy. The room upgrade is not so surprising as experienced in Asia, but not bad in Europe. The sea view is excellent! Will recommend this hotel

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mari02 This hotel has a great location
The location of the hotel was perfect for exploring the town, for all transport and is directly across the promenade from the beach. Reception staff (Ann in particular) were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IvanBribir unbeatable location, excellent service
When I was reading other users' opinions, especially SPG members, I was not sure about this hotel. But it worked out perfectly. The location is excellent. Everything is in walkable distance, many things are just in front of the hotel (promenade, bus station and touristic train for example). The staff is more than friendly. In particular I was impressed by the young lady at the reception – Marie. She was so helpful in organizing my trips to Grasse as well as in all information I needed.
The only objection is the interior design, but in small details. For example, at some places in the room the paint was peeled and I really did not like purple hallways, but it is my subject opinion.
As for SPG status - I was immediately recognized as a Gold member and offered a welcome gift - the best option is free Internet. Regarding room type - I got exactly what I booked. Upgrade was manifested as a room at (higher) 8th floor with large balcony. The late check-out was no problem at all.
The small pool is located directly beside the restaurant so it is not really a place for relaxation, although it could be nice to swim outdoors in December. SPA center (sauna) works only with prior notice.
Breakfast was expected for the hotel chain Le Meridien - a modern, rich, but classic - without some special local dishes. The food in the restaurant was excellent.
All in all - an excellent hotel that I intend to revisit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Andriy Nice place with potential not yet realized
Wonderful location close to old town Nice, on the promenade, near the port, historic parks, etc.
Entrance needs some updating, staff attitude, especially bell service staff, seems very indifferent. Hotel management seems focused on squeezing out profit from whatever sector comes to mind. For example, charging for wi-fi everywhere in the hotel, establishing odd, inconvenient hours for the fitness center(10am to 7pm).
Rooms were large, comfortable, quiet. Beds were great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Poulette This hotel needs renovations
The location of the hotel is really good but it is very old and desperately needs to be renovated. The rooms were not very clean and the air con made a horrible noise all night long. The "sea view" rooms are on the side of the hotel and do not face the sea. Prices are too high for the value that you get.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BR058 Great location and views BUT..
This hotel has a great location and wonderful views. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was good. BUT....the hallway on the 9th smelled very badly of mould and mildew which was clearly visible on the carpets. The doors, door handles were all heavily worn and many damaged. The room was very hot. We had no power in our room one night as it had fused and needed to be fixed, one night there was NO hot water in the entire hotel. They renovated the bathroom but only have one place to hang one towel? The toilet and the bathroom don't have fans? All these failures are not really acceptable for any hotel.
