A superbly located four-star on the harbor (though, despite the name, not really within the Vieux Port), the Sofitel exudes all the charm for which cement-block chain properties are famous. The 131 rooms are done in modern modular, but—to be fair—tastefully so, with bright contemporary upholsteries and the occasional vaguely nautical touch, such as a wood-slat wall decked out with brass fittings. The rooftop restaurant, Les Trois Forts, offers upscale Mediterranean cuisine to go with the plate-glass panoramas, and there's an outdoor (unheated) pool. Oddly, the Novotel is in the same building (Sofitel's three-star corporate sibling), with a separate entrance and staff (and slightly lower prices).
