The Meridien Nice isn't bad, but it could be much better. Whoever designed the interior "look" certainly lives up to the old adage that hotel designers rarely live in their creations. The colours are dark and grim. Purple hallways with a neon look? Rooms painted in various shades of dark grey and black. Felt like I was in a stalag.
The staff were generally OK but perfunctory. I didn't get a sense of really mattering as a customer. It's the only major hotel I have stayed at where having mistakenly served myself the wrong coffee from the machine (the labelling on the machine was inaccurate) and returned it to the server untouched, I was still charged for it on the bill!
And costs are beyond outrageous. $20 equivalent to watch an in-room movie? C'Mon! And God help you if you touch anything in that miinibar. $30 equivalent for breakfast. Everything is literally double or triple the North American rate.
The hotel location is very good. The bed was very comfortable and the shower pressure good. Two important features for me. I had complimentary WiFi because of my SPG Gold status, but the outrageous charges for WiFi are a common complaint in other reviews I have read.
This could be a much better hotel, but right now, it's not up to SPG standards worldwide, especially at the prices they charge.
