We spent a week in this classic icon of a hotel on the Promenade des Anglais. The hotel, built in 1912, is very grand. It is full of works of art, which whilst not all to my taste, give it certain style.
I loved the restaurant La Rotonde, which is a carousel, where you have breakfast. There are some of the horses and at times a couple move up and down, quirky but fun.
Breakfast was delicious. I mostly had fresh fruit and the various breads but I did gave delicious pancakes with maple syrup and beautiful crispy bacon. The croissants were light, buttery, sweet and crumbly, probably the best I've had and the brioche was as light as a feather. They had nice little touches too some as their own label on the small photos of jam and yogurt.
I am on dialysis so they had to accept my fluids the week before I arrived. This was bit a problem and because I was in a standard (or superior room as they call it), they were concerned about putting it all in the room. Actually the room was by many standards of generous proportions but it was good that they would bring the fluids up each day.
The staff were all extremely helpful and polite and very smart. The porteing staff's outfits were stylish.
It was nice that there was water in the room on the first night and whilst I don't expect tea and coffee making facilities as that is not normal across Europe, I do like it when they give you fresh water each day and has happened in other 5 star hotels, but that is only a minor point.
I'd certainly recommend the hotel if you like some pampering and style.
