Fodor's Expert Review nhow Marseille

200 corniche J. F. Kennedy, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, 13002, France

Sleek, with stunning 360-degree views of the bay and the islands, this white-on-white modern hotel offers designs by Starck, Zanotta, and Emu. Service is prompt and unobtrusive, and the huge windows make for a light-filled reception area. The saltwater pool is fed by a natural spring and the rooms are up-to-the-minute in style. Specialties of the good modern restaurant include rack of lamb basted with olive tapenade and black grain mustard and sea bass baked with Provençal vegetables.

PROS

  • the view out to sea is truly remarkable
  • rooms are large, most with balconies
  • saltwater pool

CONS

  • service sorely lacking
  • too many rooms for a personalized welcome
  • minimalist style not for everyone
