Booked this hotel for one night in September as we were picking up a cruise ship in Marseille. We travelled from Aix by taxi (it takes about 20 mins and costs about 70 euros). The hotel overlooks the port although we had a room at the back of the hotel (I think a port view costs the earth). Saying that the room was beautiful and very clean & tidy. The service is excellent and you will get your bags etc taken to your room. When we came back from a night in Marseille chocolates had been put on our bed and classical music put on the Bose sound system! Breakfast was included in the price and is worth it for the beautiful view of the old port. We also had afternoon lunch at the hotel's poolside restaurant (again excellent). The pool is also excellent, a right sun trap with excellent poolside service. Had a night out around the old Marseille port. Not the cheapest place (france is very expensive due to the sterling exchange rate) but loads of atmosphere and very friendly.
