Nice and comfortable rooms, perfect location in Cannes. Great hotel for large business meeting with very good meeting rooms and state of the art amphitheater. During my stay for a sales conference, most of lunches were buffet. Overall, food was good but dessert exceptional. Very good 5 star hotel

Very nice rooms with usual amenities for a 5*; iron and board are in the room if you need to freshen-up your shirt. Functional bath room. Check-in was very friendly and smooth. Micro-sized pool on the roof top terrace, but then again there is the beach in front of the hotel. Average, because service quality was not matching the expected... More

Yes the decor is dated outside the rooms but its right on the croisette and in the middle of everything so it depends what you want. Reception is an 80's shocker and the breakfast room is tiny and not very nice.The rooms are quiet nice, not typical French style but generic hotel, warm furnishings, comfortable. They need some firm pillows... More

When we walked into the foyer, my husband and I both looked at each other and said "Trump" at the same time. It's gaudily decorated in gold tones with an obnoxious chandelier. The hallways and rooms feel like a cross between a Victoria Secret and Trump Tower - visually disturbing black and white stripes with mirrors everywhere. I can't tell... More

This hotel is fantastic, a real gem. The location is great, decor is amazing, staff are courteous, breakfast is vast and facilities (rooftop swimming pool for example) are a real bonus. However, I've rated it a three due to three things that tainted our experience. First was the cost of the WIFI, 54Euros for 4 days!! Second was the fact... More

Having now tried most of the big "Croisette hotels", now was the turn of the Marriott. Prior hotels experiences in Cannes were rather far from groundbreaking, so my expectations were measured, to say the least... And so? Overall good experience. Starting on the weaker points, the main issue might be the globally dated feel of the decoration of the hotel... More
