Vacationed in Nice for two nights in September '13, unaware that "Francophonie" was going to be staged directly in front of the hotel in Place Massena. Despite the festivities running late into the night & early mornings, we were not disturbed. It is easy to walk past the hotel entrance, because the only marking is a small placard to the right of the front doorway. Go up the stairs to the 1st level and find the front desk. We were very pleased with our room; incredibly large, very tastefully decorated, comfortable bed, and spacious & modern bathroom. The women at the front desk were very sweet & helpful, and language was not an issue. The entry and front desk doors were locked and unattended at night, so a passcode was given for exit & re-entry after hours. It is a very centrally located hotel, perfect for exploring the Nice waterfront & old town. We didn't have to walk far to catch the bus along the coastline to Monaco.
While we enjoyed the hotel very much, we found Nice to not live up to expectations from others who had visited. The weather was fantastic in early September and a great draw. The town itself we found very touristy and not terribly interesting.
