Fascinating Hotel Negresco - Côte d'Azur, Nice, France

Location: 37 Promenade Des Anglais, 06000 Nice. It is a 15 minute walk from the Old Town and Nice Train Station.

Description: The Negresco, on the seafront in the heart of Nice, is one of the Riviera's super-glamorous hotels. This hotel's splendid early 20th-century architecture and enviable seafront location overlooking the Promenade des Anglais have made it a legend on French Riviera. Bedrooms are the last word in luxury and magnificent works of art and antique furniture abound. Gourmets can choose to dine in the hotel's Le Chantecler restaurant or top-class brasserie La Rotonde , which boasts an unusual carousel-style decor complete with wooden horses.

Review:  The hotel itself is an art; a lot of art work and antique collections to see. Our room is very huge and decent; bathroom is clean and well equipped. All the staff we encountered are very professional and resourceful. The food in the Michelin Star Chantecler Restaurant isdelicious and the ambiance in the Regency style dining room isso relaxing which is superseeded by the ever attentive professional staff. The presence of an individual sculpture on each table was unique. Different floors have different designs and settings, each room has its own charm. There are a total of six floors in this hotel. The hotel has a somewhat museum feel with paintings, sculptures and art ever where the eye can see.

The hotel offers valet and free parking which keeps it true to its name and service; arriving guests worry about nothing but just check themselves in and enjoy their stay. The entire staff is professional, friendly and very eager to help.

Each room has its own specific and unique décor inspired and modeled from French Art/History and varying from Louis XIII to Art Deco. Upon walking into the room you feel as though you are transported back in time into an imperial maison/suite: ceilings are extremely high, the bathroom is large and grand covered in marble, rooms are spacious, walls are covered with fabric wall-papering and scattered with beautiful furniture and art.
