Hotels in Nice
As France’s second most popular tourist destination, Nice boasts accommodations of every stripe. Hotels in Nice range from the quaint and charming to more luxurious hotspots located deep in the city’s hustle and bustle. Nice hotels really do run the full gamut.
Those looking for an oasis in the midst of this bustling metropolis should book a room at Hotel Windsor. This hotel features lush gardens, an on-site spa, and a lovely assortment of art throughout the building. What’s more, the hotel is a short five-minute walk from the seaside Promenade. Those looking for unrivaled views of the Rivera itself should consider staying at either the Hotel Royal Riviera, a resort located on the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula and juts out into the Mediterranean, or the Hotel Suisse Nice, which sits right outside historic districts like Old Nice and the Old Port. Whichever you choose, prepare to fall in love with the crystalline waters of the Côte d’Azur from the comfort of your room.
And finally, for those interested in escaping to another world entirely, a room at Le Grimaldi will surely fit the bill. Built during the Belle Époque (1871 to WWI), this lovely Nice hotel will instantly transport visitors back to a different, and perhaps better, time.
Situated in a posh residential neighborhood and set back from the water in Nice, the Hi was designed by Matali Crasset, one of Philippe Starck’s protégés. The Hi is exactly like a Starck hotel, only more so. It is more toylike, has more gadgets, and its underlying philosophy is deeper.
