A real palace with great service and facilities. Incredible view over the old port.

Very nice and near the center hotel. Also very nice breakfast and bar. You have to try burger which even if it is not "French" it is totally juicy and well cutting meat. Service also is very polite and helpful.

This is more of a full hotel review. Oh my god, the view of Basilica Notre Dame of the Garde is worth just visiting the hotel. The staff felt a little dry in English, but energized in french -- I attribute that to being a foreigner, as many of the other guests seemed to speak fluent French. The pool was wonderful, albeit hard to find (hint, it is located inside the Clarins spa). The waterfall and jets are a nice touch. I didn't get to experience the spa treatment, so i cannot comment on that. I had no problems with the restaurant or bar. My old fashion was served promptly, and the wine was courteously handled. The food was exceptional, and the service attentive. It was French service, so expect some waits. The largest surprise of the restaurant was the kids' menu: It was perfect. The staff even suggested ordering my son's meal first, to accommodate his lack of patience when he is hungry. The kids meal was on par with the adult menu, and he loved the desserts. It was wonderful to find something so kid friendly in such an upscale dining experience. The room is spacious and large. It appears to be a well done renovation. The bathroom is awesome. Overall, if you have a reason to visit Marseille, I recommend the Intercontinental. If you don't need a hotel, I would still recommend the restaurant attached.

The hotel is beautiful. The room is very comfortable and spacious. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. This hotel looks and makes me feel like I'm staying in a palace. However, access to the hotel is not as easy. There are very lengthy stairs to reach the hotel.

Gorgeous hotel in the heart of Marseille. We only had a quick over night atop during a road trip but we haven't stopped raving about wanting to go back since. Great service, and great recognition for Intercontinental Ambassador members.

Perfection! The decor is modern, sophisticated and kept to the highest standards. The staff is friendly and helpful. Upon check in, they made us feel like celebrities. We found respite at their pool after a long day's journey from the US. Just steps out the door you wind into the old streets of Marseilles first stumbling into a soap shop then on to French bakeries, cafes and galleries. The location is convenient to many historic attractions and eateries. I would go to Marseilles again just to stay here.

It's like living in a modernized castle. There's a beautiful courtyard to have breakfast and hang out with a drink after. The rooms are modern clean. The concierge polite and accommodating. Everyone spoke English. The included breakfast was delicious. Would come back to Marseille just to stay here.

Nice place, lovely staff, but dear lord the coffee is horrible. Even more so since it’s 10€ for a doppio. No crèma, overburnt, no body or any flavor to speak of. Welcome to France. Actually the place is really beautiful. The arrangement of the tables and seating is such that everyone sees everyone but there is plenty distance for privacy of conversation and at the same time you can make eye contact with strangers.

One of my favourite buildings in Marseille. The building has been developed and transformed over the past 800 years with the latest transformation occuring in the late 19th century. The Intercontinental is situated in the perfect location - up on a hill overlooking the Hotel de Ville (Town Hall), Notre Dame de La Garde and the old port. The luxury hotel sits infront of the popular and must see Panier district and the Vieux Port. Prices are hefty but with the terrace, architecture and view even a 10 euro espresso seems worth it!

It’s a Hugh high class hotel! You get everything what you need! It’s very expensive surprise surprise. You have a beautiful view on the harbour and you’re just 5 min away from the water and all the restaurants. There is a exclusive park service and a really kind and friendly Crew ! Excellent !!!

I've been there for a conference. Excellent facilities and staff. If they want to keep academics happy they may need to improve on their coffee.

I stayed two nights in InterContinental Marseille - Hotel Dieu mid-June 2018. My room was a balance of a beautifully modern design and cosiness. The bed was huge with lovely soft linen and each night my room (different each night) was large. Wifi speed in my hotel room was good. The lobby is also a beautiful design and if you have time to check out the spa - the pool is totally gorgeous. I had such a lovely swim, though not Olympic size, it's long and deep enough to have a decent swim and get some exercise. The front desk staff were very helpful, holding a room for me as I was unsure if I needed the second night, and they made sure I never needed to wait. My Dad was in the local hospital so it was a very stressful time for me, however I felt safe in this hotel, it was a lovely place to rest and the local stores/ restaurants were nice making me feel like a local not a tourist. The breakfast served on the large patio was not good, the salmon made me feel a little sick and the scrabbled eggs were too runny. The breakfast waiter staff made me wait over 15 mins for my first coffee, but when I finally went over to the coffee counter to help myself they wouldn't let me. The whole breakfast experience took so long I decided to just take my plate of food back to my hotel room as I needed to make some calls and return to the hospital but they staff wouldn't let me. Most restaurant service in France is excellent, so it's not the norm. Even so, the view of Marseille from the court yard is very beautiful. I recommend getting breakfast from a local cafe just a short walk away. As I returned in the evening I could hear live music playing from somewhere in the hotel - it's was such a perfect setting and quite romantic. I would definitely stay again. Amira rating: feeling the love :)

A really lovely property in Marseille. You are up on the hill and have a great view of the Notre-Dame de la Garde from the front. The hotel is in a building that served as a hospital for over 800 years so there is a lot of history to take in. The rooftop bar/lounge has swinging chairs and a bar to enjoy. We even had live music in the evening. The room was very comfortable, the bed was one of the best I've slept in. Staff was helpful in directing us to local places but was a little overbearing. I appreciate being thanked for being a loyal IHG member but after the 5th time thanking me I got the point. A silly thing to criticize the hotel for I guess. Overall this was a 5-star stay for us.

I love this place and normally want to give 6 stars, but breakfast today was slow, it took 34 minutes to get a mushroom omelette after reminding them 3 times. Coffee and tea were served after 10 minutes when we asked for it. Plus they did not know where the soya milk was (luckily I found it on one of the stands)!

Enjoyed this hotel, stunning building in a great location that is walkable to all marseille central hotspots,including harbour and basilico. Lovely terrace bar, albeit a bit expensive. Hotel has all the amenities required and service is good, including the concierge who is able to make some decent bookings
