I wonder if anyone can help me with a question regarding the location of the Intercontinental vs. Sofitel hotel. Ideally, I would like to be able to get out of the door and walk to anywhere interesting or just leisure strolls. Reviews all say that "location is great" for both hotels and not much more details. I am somewhat a seasoned traveler and have always taken precautions/cautious of my surroundings. However, various articles mentioned about safety in Marseille have me worried.
Walking from and to either of these hotels should be fine at night? Many thanks in advance.
