I am little surprised to see some of the negative reviews as we had a very lovely time at the Negresco, and I'm usually quite difficult to please.
We were given an upgrade from a double to a junior suite on arrival (I had booked through the Leading Hotels of the World website) and we were shown to our room courteously and efficiently, with a little box of complimentary chocolates. I do agree the hotel is a bit "old fashioned" looking but then it is quite unique and we certainly didn't have any plastic headboard coverings. I also enjoying looking at the antiques in our room and on each floor.
I agree the Rotonda restaurant decor is rather camp and a bit strange, but for one day's dining it was quite funny and ok - the prices there are reasonable for the Riviera. For breakfast we usually had it in our room as we had a lovely view of the sea and the breakfast isn't included in our tariff.
I should add that there are charges in summer for using the Negresco's beach facilities but this is quite common in Nice and Cannes. (15 euros per person for the day)
The Michelin starred gourmet restaurant, Le Chantecleer, is tastefully furnished, elegant, excellent service and food, and not too overpriced.
PS. They were also very helpful when we needed to hire a car for one day - they had a reputable, English-speaking agent who got the car delivered over directly to our hotel (to save us hunting for car hire), and explained the terms and conditions efficiently, with only a small service charge, which was worth paying to avoid the hassle.
The only small niggle was that there were small errors with bill items (like charging for 2 coffees instead of 1, or forgetting to bring an invoice up with room service), but the receptionist was quick to correct these without any quibbles.
Overall, one of the most comfortable, efficient and pleasant hotels I've ever stayed at in Europe.
