Journey Review Destination:
Hyatt Regency Nice, France
Although a seasoned traveler its always refreshing to see a new city from above and try to see if that feeling in which you got on that first glimpse holds true once you experience. I have a desire to showcase my journeys for the world to see and to provide eye candy for future travel for all travel addicts and wanderlust alike.
In this review, I will continue with my canvas of the world in showcasing my journey and adventure.
My journey of the French Riviera and the Hyatt Regency Nice Palais De La Méditerranée.
Slightly taken aback by the old and run down airport, taking into account I had just landed in a city known for its luxury, movie stars and high rollers.
But that is where the disappointment ended, and the beauty of a city and its people shine.
I was greeted by a well groomed and most welcoming French bonjour from the driver that was taking us to the Hyatt.(*UT) after a 20-minute informative ride to the hotel. We were quickly escorted to the front desk where we received a warm personal welcome by Noëllie Ginoux (Executive Assistant) (*UT) and her colleagues.
We were given a partial sea view room on the fourth floor with a private balcony.(*UT) The room itself is a typical room with the usual toiletries., which were not replenished unless you asked. Another first from any hotel I've stayed is the toilet; it's located in a separate room from the actual bathroom, so to wash your hands you have to leave that room and go to another- even a small hand washing sink would of suffice. I did mention to staff and was told all rooms are setup this way.
The most amazing aspect of this room was the view, just breathtaking and a welcome every morning to enjoy your coffee or evening champagne toast.(the view in itself deserves 10*UT)
Breakfast was on offer in the main dining room which was your typical hotel breakfast; I only wish the staff was a bit more attentive and a few local specialties were offered. On a positive note, the outside sitting area which is open during the warmer season would have made the breakfast environment a bit more welcoming (*UT) including the spectacular indoor-outdoor pool area (*UT). We did try the hotel restaurant for dinner one night and although good it was nothing in which to write about or make it memorable.
I always find it interesting to interact to with the concierge team before my arrival and to meet and greet them on a personal level once I arrive.
All my correspondence, with the team, were answered in a timely fashion and thoroughly.(*UT)
I have to say the whole team was gracious, sincere and eager to address all our questions and concerns about the French Riviera.(*UT)
I only wish the bell boys had the same graciousness as them and to know that a front door greeting is a must for any front line staff-it sets the tone to follow.
The Hyatt considers itself a 5-star property but falls slightly short of that. I genuinely wish I had the opportunity to meet the GM to express my constructive criticism but most importantly to express how much we enjoyed Nice, its, people, cuisine, culture, and the breathtaking view.
All in all the Hyatt is in the perfect location in Nice to explore the whole city albeit by foot or taxi. Staff is welcoming, room service was good, larger bottles of water could be left in the room which would also save on plastic and the environment.
I will provide photos and videos of this journey and a link to property for anyone wishing to experience the adventure.
As you will notice I'm using (*UNIQUE TOUCH- UT) throughout my writing as to express my personal feelings with my experience during a given journey. Because I consider myself a global citizen and a seasoned traveler who has an eye for fine details in life, I have created this check and balance to give recognition and credit where deserved.
Uniquely the Hyatt Nice touched me wholeheartedly a few times and received 17 UNIQUE TOUCH stars * from Rome H Geragonis.
Would I return to this hotel, I most certainly would love to.
I LIKE IT!
