Room and stuff were excellent, but only problem was that the elevator was terrible. You need to fix them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HB10 Stay overcame poor reviews
After reading several poor reviews about this property I was concerned that my stay would be less than ideal. However I was extremely impressed with the staff and treatment I received. As a platinum member I was upgraded to an Ocean view with a nice balcony. I called down for ice and just like a previous review stated they was a charge of 5 euros for a bucket of ice. When I mentioned that I was a Platinum member not only did I receive the ice for free but the head hotel butler (George) hand delived the ice ing with fruit and macaroons all gratis for being a valued SPG member. He personally introduced half and left a number should I need anything else. The next day coming I'm from the beach I found the same setup along with 2 bottles of water waiting for me. I have to say this service was more than I expected and was a highlight of the stay. The rooftop dining has an amazing view along with a nice breakfast buffet in the main lobby lounge. All in all a nice experience and great location for sightseeing. To top it off the airport bus line is right in front of the hotel. Save can fare and spend 6 euros to get to the airport. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Thanks for a great experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nyctrvllr2013 lackluster help
I recently stayed in the Le Meridien Nice for a couple of nights and had a less than helpful experience with the concerige services.
I had paid for the internet in my room only to find that the internet didn't actually have wifi signal in my room (565). When I asked the front desk about it, all they offered was that they could give me the number of the internet service provider (which wasn't going to be helpful for me since I didn't speak french fluently). I ended up basically using the lobby wifi anyway since it didn't work in my room. Very disappointing.
Additionally during the train strike, no one was able to help me determine whether or not trains were leaving from Nice. No one offered to make a phone call to help us. The only assistance that the concierge offered was simply for us to check out and go to the train station- which after trekking all our luggage there, we found out that no trains were leaving Nice. This was extremely inconvenient. We ended up booking an additional night in another hotel.
Beyond that, when we entered the room, it had a really strange smell. Almost like someone had been smoking in it.
As an SPG member, I was disappointed with the service at Le Meridien Nice. There was actually zero SPG recognition. I think of Le Meridien as quality hotels that pride themselves on great customer service, but I definitely didn't get that feeling on my most recent trip.

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 4 out of 5 by VeraD Perfect location, good service
The hotel is perfectly placed in the heart of town, close to everything you could possibly want. The rooms were a bit small, but the terrace more than made up for that (deluxe room). Clean and tidy bathroom and separate toilet which is actually quite practical! The roof terrace is nice, but not so cosy that I would love to hang out there for more than a drink or two. I think some plants and flowers would make it much better.
The staff were very helpful, serviceminded, kind and knew good english, they were absolutely lovely (all the staff, including reception, maids and at breakfast service and in the bar).
What really is a dissapointment theese days is that they don't have complimentary wi-fi in the rooms, only in the lobby. To me that is quite odd and very old fashioned to be in a modern country, in a hotel on the high-end-scale. Even hotels with lesser stars give their customers free wi-fi. It really is a pitty, It would have made our trip much more comfortable and easier if the hotel offered that. The breakfast is quite simple, and as a scandinavian (who is used to big and healthy breakfasts with lots of greens, different kinds of breads and cheeses and so on), I would recommend my fellow Scandinavians to go out for breakfast, or at least lower your expectations of the hotel breakfast. It was only OK, but I would expect more from a hotel of this class.
Overall a good hotel which I would recommend, mostly for the location and the comfort of the room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SPGLoyalist1 Simply excellent
They just made my stay and all days! Upon arrival being greeted in the best possible way and given me being a very demanding person, yet again the loveliest of all young women, the dearest Jessica of the reservation tried her utmost best and care to help me out and in order to make this stay meet all my expectations from the previous stays as a Gold SPG member across the world, she added an extra touch and upgraded me to a room with such lovely view and I still find no words to thank her enough.
All staff were/are friendly and helpful, attentive and listening carefully to your needs.
Rooms was clean and large, complementary water and all amenities were present. The cleaning lady did her best to clean the room as I wanted given my allergy and overal, except for the rather smelly hallways of the top floor given the rooftop terrace's bistro, the views, the breakfast, the staff, the quiet rooms, the cleanliness and all else was just very good.
I strongly recommend this hotel and strongly recommend to stay here.
Location can't just be any better. Office de Tourism of Nice is around the corner, the old historic town with its narrow alleys and many bistro's and restaurants at your doorstop across from the street, shopping district of fancy haute couture right behind the hotel, fountain du Soleil and the square is a few steps away and not to mention the boulevard that is just in front of you! you see and hear the sea from any corner and a breakfast with that views is just amazing.
Great place to stay! THANK YOU
