I stayed at the Hotel America as part of a group trip at the weekend and it was superb.

Here's what I liked:
Swift check-in, even for a group of 20, who arrived en masse. Pleasant, airy if compact lobby. Superb cleanliness everywhere, reliable if a little small lift. My room was small, perfect for one person but for two very snug. The bed was large and comfortable, a large, modern safe, plenty of coat hangers, large wardrobe space, well-stocked and reasonably priced mini bar, modern, clean bathroom, sympathetic lighting, powerful shower, nice desk and a little chair right by the window to enjoy looking at the world going by on the street below. Service was friendly and swift in all areas. The hotel is fantastically located just off La Croisette.

The not-so-good bits (a short list):
Noise from the street at night - pack earplugs if you plan to leave the window open. The breakfast area was very small and if everyone arrived at the same time there would not be room for everyone. Choice of food for breakfast was a little limited. There was also only one large and one small towel in the bathroom and no iron.

Overall, I like the Hotel America very much and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Pack ear plugs, just in case!

Great location. You head right out and you are in front of the Cannes film festival theater Bohr lobby is nice and spacious and the staff is friendly. However the rooms have a chemical smell and the sheets are not comfortable at all. Also bathrooms very small and cramped. If you are driving tho, it is right by a huge underground parking structure which is helpful.

My husband and I stayed here on the last night of our holiday. We arrived at 9.30am and our room was ready for us. Clean basic room with nice bathroom. The hotel is only one street back from the promenade and everything is within walking distance. Bus to Nice airport also leaves from just across the road every 30mins (€17.50 per adult). Staff were very helpful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this to others.

Hotel America in Cannes is named as such because the owner lived in the U.S. and has an American-born daughter. My wife and I appeared to be the only Americans actually staying there over a long weekend in July 2012.
We stayed in what they call a junior suite which means a large room (the couch may have been a pull-out bed, I forgot to check). It was well appointed, had a large comfortable bed ,and was on the most quiet side of the hotel (overlooking the Rue Nôtre-Dame - the other side, overlooking the Rue Saint-Honoré, can be noisy when an adjacent large hotel's personnel dump the previous evening's bottles into the containers). We did not see a standard room so have no idea about its size.
The breakfast buffet is fairly basic but adequate - however, the serving ladies are so nice and helpful that you have the impression you're in a 5-star hotel. In fact, every single member of the staff was nothing short of charming, helpful, and as nice as anyone we've ever met in France. They all appear to be locals.
The hotel is very well located being minutes' walk from the Croisette, the convention center, one of the yacht harbors, the beaches, and the main restaurant strip between the convention center and the Town Hall where you'll find the best seafood restaurants.
We found the room prices to be very reasonable for the place and high season. My only tiny complaint is that they seem to want to charge for every little extra such as wifi and even printing airline boarding passes. But, I've written them about this aspect encouraging them to drop this policy since it leaves the wrong impression in exchange for truly insignificant revenue.
A great little hotel to which we shall return for our next stay in Cannes.

Room Tip: Ask for the Rue Nôtre-Dame side.

We were four people had two doubleroom for 5 nights. The rooms seem to be of various size. Our rooms were quite small, smaller than normal average size in Europe. Our rooms were located in the middle of the building (room numbers end with 12 and 14). It looks like the rooms on both sides of ours were larger. The bathroom was very good, enough space and very clean and bright. The beds were very good. The staff was very nice and serviceminded. The location was excellent, 2 min from the beach and in the middle of the shopping area.
One minus, there was no free internet from the rooms, it cost 8 Euro pr day. It was free internet from a pc in the lobby.
Overall a very good and nice hotel. No problem to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had room nr 312 and 314. I think roomnumbers that ends with 12 and 14 are the smalest ones.
