Fodor's Expert Review Grand Hotel Beauvau Vieux Port - MGallery Collection

4 rue Beauvau, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13001, France

Chopin spent the night and George Sand kept a suite in this historic hotel overlooking the Vieux Port. Since 2013 the hotel has been undergoing a complete ongoing renovation—even closing for more than a year—but should be completed by the end of 2016. Public rooms still have real antiques, burnished woodwork, Provençal style, and plush carpets, all comprising a convincing part of this intimate urban hotel's genuine old-world charm. Guest rooms are in the same style but have been updated to include all the modern comforts. Harbor-view rooms, with balconies high over the fish market, more than justify the splurge. Look for special rates online.
