My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Radisson Blu in Marseille's Old Port. It is very conveniently located at the far end of the old port, but only a 5 minute walk to all the action and restaurants. If you have a car there is a municipal lot very close to the hotel. If you are coming from the direction of the airport it is best to enter the lot "Parking Vieux Port" before proceeding to the hotel. While we declined the 25 Euro per person breakfast we did have a fabulous tuna salad at the roof top pool bar. It was made with freshly grilled tuna and highly recommended. The pool was pretty crowded and there were a lot of small children in it as our stay was in August during the popular family travel period. The rooms and hallways are very nicely decorated in a Euro-Modern style. We booked directly through Radisson and the rate was more favorable than those on the popular hotel websites. Reception staff and concierge are very professional and all fluent in English. My only small complaint is regarding 2 phone calls we received. In one case no message was taken or given to us even though our nephew said he left one. The other case we did get a message but we were in the room when the call was placed and don't know why it wasn't put through to the room. When I asked reception, I was told that they did try the room but there was no answer. In spite of this I would definitely stay at and recommend this hotel. It was very professionally run and the taxi they reserved for us was waiting early in the morning and the manager helped us with our luggage. The city runs a free ferry from one side of the port to the other and the ferry is only a few minutes from the hotel and very pleasant and efficient. Good choice for the Marseille Vieux Port.
