The Intercontinental Hotel, Marseille, Hotel Dieu, is situated in a beautiful hillside location overlooking Vieux Port. Having only recently opened in May 2013 after three long years of renovation costing in excess of $160million, this 194-roomed hotel means serious business. Being a hospital in a previous life, the impressive building has now become a fine example of luxury hospitality.

Hotel Dieu’s façade promises big things, being housed in a listed historical monument, and the hotel certainly doesn’t disappoint. Amongst its many notable features, the hotel offers a 24hr fully-equipped, state-of-the-art gym and a spa by Clarins. The pool is nothing short of fantastic, with classical background music for your enjoyment during your swim.

We felt very privileged to be able to experience this incredible hotel in its early days of operating. We stayed in an Executive Terrace Room, which really had the ‘wow factor’. Although not being a suite the room provided ample space. It is light and elegant and a relaxing, peaceful environment with stone hues and grey undertones.

“Hotel Dieu’s façade promises big things, and the hotel certainly doesn’t disappoint.”

The biggest selling point of the room is, of course, the terrace, which features unbeatable views of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. And this is no ordinary terrace… With a large table and chaise and a comfortable sofa seat, this is a space where you can really relax and spend the evening.

Les Fenêtres is the hotel’s restaurant and is decorated in a traditional brasserie style. It provides an intimate atmosphere, catering for up to 80 guests, and offers Mediterranean cuisine of the highest standard. The large menu boasts a great selection of dishes, so maybe allow yourselves a little extra choosing time!

The hotel is in a great location to provide a base from which to explore the surround area, so be sure to make the most of the staff’s local knowledge. Hotel Dieu is just a stone’s throw from the Quai du Port, Marseille’s waterfront promenade, and very close by you can get a ferry to the Calanques – Marseille’s stunning waterways. Le Panier, which used to be Marseille’s red-light district, is also worth a visit with its alleyways being an up-and-coming location.

Hotel Dieu, Marseille comes very highly recommended by us as a highly luxurious stay amid a wealth of culture and stunning architecture. The service is impeccable, with staff who are only too happy to take care of your every need. Hotel Dieu really is a must-stay if visiting Marseille.
