Housed in a converted church, this modern boutique hotel prides itself on personal service and outstanding amenities like plasma televisions and high-end stereo systems. The art deco interior employs bold colors in playful prints and geometric shapes, balanced out by traditional fabrics and furnishings. The lobby's splendid staircase has a wrought-iron balustrade illustrating Napoléon's exploits (the chain takes its name from an extravagant home decorated by Empress Josephine).
The warm Brasserie offers British and French cooking, while the Champagne Bar serves savory pasta dishes in an airy room with a spiral staircase.

Nice building, shame about the rooms which are small and the decor is getting very tired. This is a case of marketing triumphing over reality. Generally this hotel disappointed me.
