Property's Green Action

To protect the environment, we are reducing water use, energy consumption and recycling waste with the goal of limiting our carbon footprint. We integrate sustainable development into our operating procedures, contribute to preserve local communities and the natural ecosystems in which our hotel is located. With all sister hotels, we have already planted three million trees as part of a global reforestation project supported by the United Nations. The last but not the least, we engage our partners and suppliers in their sustainable development strategy and integrate them into the responsibility chain.

Planet 21 Bronze

AccorHotels created an action plan that offered 76 actions to promote sustainable development, tailored to the hotel context. It sets out 16 mandatory actions for achieving the “Bronze” level, which must be obtained before moving on to the higher levels. Those initiatives are structured into 4 pillars & 2 axes:

- PEOPLE: Raise employees’ awareness of eco-friendly practice
- CUSTOMERS: engage guests in a sustainable experience
- COMMUNITIES: work hand-in-hand with local Communities for a positive impact
- PARTNERS: co-innovate to open up new horizons

- BUILDING: Move towards carbon neutral buildings
- FOOD: Strive for zero food waste & healthy sustainable food

Then, to go even further, each hotel selects other actions from over 60 additional initiatives. This flexible system enables it to build its own program in line with AccorHotels’ commitments, but also reflecting the hotel’s local characteristics:
- Its prior level of progress on sustainable development
- Its priority areas for improvement
- The environment and local issues

A weighting mechanism establishes the action achievement level with a score that places the hotel around the higher levels. Each level marks the progress hotels are making in implementing the Planet 21 program.

I visited last year and had a really good time.
Many rooms of the hotel have the best view of Marseille Vieux-Port.
Breakfast buffet has multiple choice.
In all, it's a great place for vacation!
I highly recommend it :)

Very friendly, professional and efficient staff. Me and my fiancee spent here an amazing time for the new year's eve. Specially the concierge, Silvi, has managed to organize an incredible evening.
Totally recomend this hotel for your dinners, and stays in Marseille.

If you have to stay in Marseille, the Sofitel is a decent choice. Rooms aren’t large or spectacular in anyway but service and facilities aren’t too bad. Try to get a room with a terrace looking at the sea.

Great place to stop off for lunch. The view on the patio over the water is really something to take in. We had the Mediterranean Fish (which means the head is still on it) and the Cream & Ham pasta (which was huge!). The also serve one of the white wines from Bono's winery.

Breathtaking!!!!! One of the best places in Marseilles to enjoy the view of the old port. The rooftop overlooks the port, the abbey and the fort. It is imperative to pay a visit there.

Vue agréable et cocktails de qualité pour passer une bonne soirée, le parking est bien évidemment le bienvenu pour ne pas s'embêter à chercher une place ou risquer de se garer à un endroit hasardeux. La musique n'est malheureusement pas assez présente pour au moins être qualifiée "d'ambiance", je sais que le but n'est pas de couvrir les voix, mais il y a la marge. Je recommande tout de même malgré les prix élevés.

Great lounge for dinner drinks and with a view overlooking the Vieux Port. Live music and tasty food with impeccable service.

Just went for cocktails then dinner. Amazing views from both the deck at the bar and the restaurant. Ordered a dirty martini, order accepted without question but something entirely different arrived, in a tumbler. Not a cocktail bar. A bar with a cocktail menu - different. Had a wonderful birthday meal though. Vegetarian options genuinely utterly hopeless.

For an international brand flagship hotel these two issues are unexpected in 2017 and Accor ought to pay some attention to it.

Service was otherwise exceptional.

What can you say .... France. The staff was totally amazing and so very helpful. Had the most beautiful view from our balcony in the mornings and evenings. Also great location making it easy to get around.

Great rooms, service is capable and polite. All is neat and clean. The terrace is a quiet and nice place to relax. The overall decoration of the hotel is very stylish

In comparison to the vast majority of Marseille, superb quality; with the Luxury Room balcony offering largely 180 degree views of the inner and outer harbour the highlight. In comparison to global hotels situated in equivalent dock side locations, a good quality albeit 4* rather than 5* as advertised.

Nice nice nice. Great view. Beautiful place. Only minus is lack of terra reserved seats at 7th floor rest for guests. More flexibility required for guests

Sofitel's rooftop is so far my favorite place in Marseille, and I've known this city for quite some time, come here and you're guaranteed to spend the night of a lifetime. The view is breathtaking, and there was a gig when I came, high quality stuff, can't say much more, just come and see. Enjoy it!

Fancy, breath taking view over the 3 forts and the old port.

The main lobby and our room were comfortable, modern, and nice, and the customer service was quite good, but the exterior is a bit shabby and needs updating. Many of these uploaded images of building exteriors are not of the Sofitel but sights within Marseille.
