If you happen to be traveling to Provence I highly recommend the Intercontinental Marseille. We stayed there for 5 days and I couldn't have been happier with this hotel! The staff was amazing! They were so friendly to the whole family, even though at times I felt like we were a three ring circus. There was always someone to help with the stroller, bags and even the girls.
I also loved the design. Intercontinental is known for their design and location and this hotel couldn't have been in a better location. We were so centrally located we walked almost everywhere we went. The hotel is an old Hospital with a very interesting history but it was renovated perfectly. The design is quite modern but with added elements of the local architecture and design which, being a former hotel designer, I loved!
The rooms were spacious, which doesn't happen often in Europe. We had a suite and it was perfect for our family. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms well equipped with what we needed and we even had a small kitchenette. The girls even got their own Le Petite Prince toiletries and children's bedding and beds.
We also loved the food. There was always something on the menu we loved and that both girls would eat. And that doesn't always happen.
So, if you find yourself in the south of France, go to this hotel! You won't regret it!
