Hotel Description

This hotel’s name says at least half of what’s important about it, covering both the cozy residential feel and the location itself, which provides the bedrooms a stunning front-row view of Marseille’s picturesque, fortified old port. The Hotel La Residence du Vieux Port is a piece of distinctive local color, its modernist concrete structure a conscious homage to Le Corbusier, but transported to the port, a district too chaotic for the master’s taste — though of course its vibrant textures are what makes Marseille worthwhile in the first place, and most of today’s guests prefer a Le Corbusier homage to a straight shot of the pure stuff.

Better to combine modernist furniture and pared-down contemporary décor with timeless attractions like private terraces and plentiful Mediterranean sunshine. References to France’s cultural history are subtly woven throughout, including artworks in tribute to the Provençal masters and even the barest hint of Art Deco in some of the less restrained moments. With a sunny little restaurant La Residence is enough for a weekend hideaway on its own — what it’s not, however, is a full-on luxury hotel in the modern sense. That’s a trade many of us are willing to make for a hotel — and a town — with this much personality.
