Hotel advice for Nice, France?

My wife and I are going to France in May and will be flying out of Nice. I just wondering if anyone has advice on where to stay in Nice or a close by town? Not looking to break the bank...but not pinching pennies either. Thanks for any suggestions or insight.

We always stay at the Hotel Windsor. Ask for a room facing the garden.

My daughter and I really liked the Hotel le Grimaldi, in Nice. Excellent service, lovely hotel, very good value. Nice hot/cold breakfast buffet offered for about 10EUR. I wrote a detailed trip report about it and some restaurants we liked in Nice. You can find it if you click on my screen name above. We liked Nice a lot.

We've often stayed at The Hotel Westminster, which is just a block away from The Negresco on the Promenades des Anglais. The deluxe sea view rooms w/ balcony facing the street and sea are quite nice; some of the lower category rooms are not. However, for the price and location, which is within easy walking distance of Old Nice and across the street from the Med, it's hard to beat.

We also splurged a few years ago, and stayed at Palais de la Mediterranee, a renovated art deco palace also on the Promenade des Anglais. It's a beautiful property with excellent restaurants, small health club, tiny pool, very good service, but it can be pricey, esp. for a sea view room. Sometimes you can find the rooms slightly discounted online at Leading Luxury Hotels of the World.

Both hotels charge for access to their "private" beach clubs on the Med. This is true for many- if not all- of the hotels in the Nice that offer beach clubs.

We really liked the Suisse when we were there in October. On the eastern end of the bay under the Chateau, nice balconies overlooking the bay, very convenient to everything except the train station. Nice staff.

Would definitely stay there again.

I also stayed at the Hotel Windsor and loved it. I had a room overlooking the garden and a tiny balcony you could sit out on. The food in the restaurant was some of the best I have eaten anywhere in Europe. The duck was to die for.
