The epitome of luxury, this grand hotel occupies a striking building adjacent to Marseille’s historic Panier district. You can enjoy a pastis aperitif on the terrace with views of Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica, before dining on Mediterranean dishes in the Michelin-starred Alcyone restaurant. Work out in the fitness room, swim in the indoor pool, or unwind with a treatment in the chic SPA by Clarins. Five minutes’ walk away, boats line the quay of the Vieux-Port, in the heart of the city.
A sustainable pilot project, the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu is the first hotel ever to be restructured subject to an environmental quality certification. This certification requires scrupulous monitoring of stringent specifications, especially in the choice of building materials, energy and water management, visual comfort, acoustics, and in the quality of air and water.
Just over a third of the 194 rooms and suites have Old Port views; others face the snaking backstreets of the Panier or an inner courtyard with an austere French garden. For a special occasion, splurge on one of the 33 rooms with a fabulously vast private loggia looking over at Notre Dame de la Garde. Even the basic standard rooms are a decent size, though this category has no balcony. Décor is streamlined and restful, in earthy colours inspired by Marseille’s sun-bleached palette. Bathrooms have nice big baths plus separate toilets and walk-in Italian showers. Ceilings are low throughout, due to extra floors having been inserted.
Ranging in size from 28 to 35 m2, the Deluxe rooms offer a view of the historic Panier quarter, or the French-style gardens. The bathrooms are surprisingly large. Subtle lighting offers a further sense of serenity, underlined by peaceful stone tones and a palette of gray hues.
Ranging in size from 35 to 41 m2, our Executive rooms offer a wonderful view of the historic Panier quarter or the French style gardens. A living wall is discreetly integrated and contains all the necessary elements (lamp, television and sofa). This intelligent set-up gives a certain character to the space, while adding to the pleasant, intimate atmosphere, giving the impression of the thick walls of old buildings.
Our family rooms, ranging in size from 45 to 50 m2, offer lots of space and are ideal for family breaks, catering for up to four people. Each room has a really large double bed and a sofa bed for young and old alike.
Deluxe Harbour View room
Ranging in size from 28 to 35 m2, our Deluxe rooms overlook the Vieux Port and offer superb views of both the Port and Notre-Dame de la Garde Basilica. The beds, enhanced with white leather headboards and Provencal, hand-embroidered throws, are really spacious. Subtle lighting adds to the sense of serenity, with the accent on sober, mineral tones..
Junior Suite Harbor View
The 4 Junior Suites overlooking the Vieux Port range in size from 45 to 50 m2 and offer picturesque views of the Lacydon calanque or cove- the legendary Vieux Port of the city of Marseille. Here, all is unembellished luxury, respectful of the Mediterranean, where the room appears to emerge from a sober, mineral setting.
Junior Suite Terrace
Ranging in size from 45 à 50 m2 the 4 Terrasse Junior Suites offer an immense terrace, with a picture postcard view of the Vieux Port and the ever-benign gaze of Notre-Dame de la Garde. Some of the Suites have separate living areas, apart from the main bedroom. Works of art find their place here enhanced by the subtle lighting against a mineral background, amid warm stone tones and a palette of grey hues.
Prestige, tradition and design…Nestling in the wings of the former Hôtel-Dieu, the 6 Prestige Suites offer spaciousness…and more! They range in size from 106 to 115 m2, with outstanding high ceilings and magnificent views of the Vieux-Port and Notre-Dame de la Garde.
The Presidential Suite, unlike the rest of the hotel, has hints of lavender, a true symbol of Provence. The striking, large-size works of art, chosen by interior designer Jean-Philippe Nuel, give the decor a really nice personal touch.
In the vanguard of Marseille’s gastronomic revolution for the last two decades, head chef Lionel Lévy is one of the most respected culinary gurus in town. The chic, slightly stuffy Alcyone restaurant is Michelin starred, but food is also excellent in the informal Fenêtres brasserie, whose enormous outdoor terrace has one of the best views in Marseille, Lévy’s signature ‘milkshake de bouillabaisse’ on the menu and, on some evenings, live music. Next to it, a cocktail bar offers another terrace.
The Capian Bar
In a refined, contemporary space hung with gold-framed artworks and large pendant lamps, the Capian Bar offers a menu of creative cocktails. Relax on a low sofa or chair as you savour a signature, gin-based Etincelle, or enjoy Vieux-Port views from a terrace table./p>
“Blending traditional and modern style, the Les Fenêtres brasserie features a painted stone wall and designer lamps hanging above banquettes. In this intimate space, Chef Lionel Levy presents creative Mediterranean cuisine, epitomised by his signature dish, the milkshake de bouillabaisse.
In an elegant, airy dining room with tall windows, lavish drapes and stunning Vieux Port views, the acclaimed Alcyone restaurant serves creative menus from Chef Lionel Levy and his team. Dine on innovative Mediterranean cuisine inspired by Marseille and its premium quality local produce.
Strict building restrictions on this listed monument mean no outdoor swimming pool, though guest membership can be arranged with a private swimming club across the Old Port. The Clarins spa has two saunas and hammams and an indoor pool. The bright, well-equipped gym beckons to sportifs. As you’d expect, there’s a full concierge service.
The pool is perfectly secluded, protected from public view and from the sun’s rays, with water at 28°C, in an infinitely peaceful setting. The decor is reminiscent of the fountains and lavoirs (communal clothes-washing places) of traditional Provence.The decor draws its inspiration from the Palais Longchamp, built to celebrate the arrival of water in the city of Marseille in the 19th century. The pool is enclosed on one side by a stone wall down which water gently cascades into the pool, providing a charming, pleasant backdrop.
In a decor inspired by the traditional Provencal fountains and lavoirs (communal clothes’ washing places) the Spa by Clarins offers time out: a moment of sheer revitalizing relaxation in an ambience redolent of the warmth and sensuality of the Mediterranean basin.
Endowed on three sides with large French windows, the fitness center benefits from pervasive light and has an incomparable view of the Hôtel Dieu and the Vieux Port.
