Marseille is a nerve-wracking place to drive, so we were plenty frazzled by the time we arrived at the hotel. They kindly allowed us to occupy our room early and carried my small bag when they saw that I was hobbling around with a cane.
All the staff that we interacted with were helpful and efficient. The room itself is normal French hotel sized (or small by American standards) but well appointed and clean. Np grab bars in the shower, but that seems par for the course in France. (Perhaps the French disabled don't travel?)
Breakfast is not included and was pretty standard in variety but much better than average in quality--flaky light croissants instead of the soggy ones a lot of places include in breakfast; a coffee machine to make real espresso based coffee, etc. We happily paid for the convenience of breakfasting so well.
The hotel is a reasonable distance from the Vieux Port, even for the semi-active walkers like me.
Alhtough Marseille has a bad reputation crime-wise, we did not feel at all threatened walking around the Old City--though we didn't stray into dodgy neighborhoods.
