Entrusted to Jean-Philippe Nuel, one of the world’s leading interior designers, the rooms of the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu offer a decor that is faithful to the spirit and history of the place. With a very mineral tone, echoing the natural setting of the city and its ancestral monuments, they also find their sources of inspiration in the Mediterranean Sea, the cradle of civilizations. Covering an area from 28 to 156 sqm, accommodation options include a wide range of rooms and suites including:

The Family Room has a surface area of 45 to 50 sqm. It thus offers a spacious space totally adapted to a family stay as it can accommodate up to four people. It features a bathroom, a study area, a double bed and a sofa bed to accommodate both young and old.

The Executive Terrace Room and its surface area ranges from 35 to 41 sqm. It has a large private terrace with an extraordinary view on the Old Port and the city’s emblem, the Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde. The parquet flooring extends onto the terrace, which itself constitutes a second living room, an ideal asset for enjoying the Provencal sunshine in complete privacy. The cornice on the ceiling, the embroidered plaid on the bed and the retro-style bathtub are reminders of the historical character of the building.

The Prestige Suite has an incredible surface area of 106 to 115 sqm. Nestled at the end of a wing of the former Hôtel-Dieu, it offers exceptional volumes, magnificent views on the Old Port and Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde, as well as remarkable ceiling heights. It has a living/dining room, a dressing room, as well as a spacious and sunny bathroom with a hoofed bathtub reminiscent of eternal Provence. Its comfortable armchairs and sofas call for conversation, the colours are soft, slightly tinged with pearl grey and ivory. The white leather headboard evokes antique and classic beds in a more contemporary reinterpretation. Traditions, design, luxury and comfort, this is in a few words the definition of this exceptional suite.

In addition to offering all the equipment necessary for the smooth running of your stay (bathrobes, slippers, safe, coffee machine, etc.), the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu is particularly keen to pamper children. Upon request, it is therefore possible, for example, to have a cot installed in the room, but also to obtain a cuddly toy, a baby bathtub, a bottle warmer or a changing mattress. Everything has therefore been thought out to welcome the most demanding families and satisfy the least of their needs.



The InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu has 2 restaurants and 1 bar.

The gastronomic restaurant Alcyone is like a cosy cocoon with warm and intimate colours. It is in this setting, overlooking the Old Port, that chef Lionel Levy brings together the finest products of the Coast, traditional recipes and spices. A gastronomic table awarded one star in the Michelin Guide since February 2014.

In the hotel’s brasserie, Les Fenêtres, with its contemporary and chic decoration that extends onto the grandiose outdoor terrace in the summer, chef Lionel Levy offers a cuisine inspired mainly by Provençal, modern and uncomplicated cuisine.

Le Capian bar is one of the trendiest bars in Marseille, extremely popular with cocktail lovers. In addition to its chic and cosy contemporary decor in winter, and its magnificent terrace above the Old Port facing Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde in summer, one of its assets is its award-winning national and international chef-barman Xavier Gilly.

The establishment also offers quality room service. Accessible 24 hours a day, it offers a “continental”, “well-being” or “à la carte” breakfast, starters and salads, soups, regional dishes, but also pasta, pizzas, sandwiches, burgers and desserts.

2nd largest city in France, Marseille has an extraordinary coastline and more than 300 days of sunshine per year, making it an ideal environment for family walks.

The hotel is located in the heart of the city, so it is very easy to go on foot to conquer the emblematic monuments of the Phocaean city. Stroll along the Old Port, marvel at the Opera House, be amazed by the Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde or cultivate yourself at the Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean (MuCEM).

A short distance from the Old Port, discover the Calanques National Park. Known throughout the world for its grandiose landscapes, its remarkable biodiversitý and its characteristic cultural heritage, this true paradise offers its visitors an irresistible turquoise water.

But Marseille is also the gateway to Provence whose typical villages have been immortalized by the greatest artists (Cézanne, Matisse…), so do not hesitate to get lost in the surrounding countryside to discover these countless little treasures. From Marseille, it is also very easy to organize day trips to Aix-en-Provence, Arles, Avignon or Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, important Provencal places to visit!

If they wish to enjoy a well-deserved moment of respite, parents go to the Spa by Clarins at the establishment. With a total surface area of 1,000 sqm, it features six treatment rooms, a relaxation room, an indoor swimming pool and a fitness room, as well as two saunas, two hammams and a solarium.

Finally, what better way to relax after a day walking around the city than to meet on the terrace of the bar Le Capian and sip a delicious cocktail (or fruit juice). Go there with your family to watch the sunset, emotion guaranteed!

A Provençal escapade in the Phocaea city


Romaric, 26 years old, from Brussels



In late July, we flew to the oldest city of France to discover its singular heritage and typical landscapes. Overlooking the Old Port and its picturesque charm, the Intercontinental Marseille was, during the time of our stay, an ideal drop point for an unprecedented resourcing moment.



The sense of welcome of southerners is not a myth, and even less in this prestigious hotel which receives each of its guests like VIPs!  On our arrival, before the announced check-in time, our room was not ready but the team did not hesitate one second to speed up the preparation of our cocoon so that we could settle in as quickly as possible and thus take advantage of the hotel’s various facilities.

Given the quietness of the place, we would never have thought that there were so many children, and yet! All the toddlers were happily strutting around, a balloon in one hand, a surprise bundle in the other.

Although there is no mini club, the hotel does its utmost to please the kids. At breakfast time, for example, their little eyes glowed in front of mini Kellogg’s boxes displayed on a table at their height.

“The hotel does its utmost to please the kids.”


A bubble of well-being

Might as well say it, the heat of Marseilles is overwhelming in July. The ideal time to visit the Phocaean city with young children is mid-season. Fortunately, the entire establishment is air-conditioned, as are the rooms, which turn out to be little havens of peace when the sun shines a little too brightly.

We had the privilege of staying in the Deluxe Room with Old Port View, which is as modern as it is comfortable. Located on the fourth floor, it offers a sumptuous view on the marina and the Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica. With its island bathtub, white King-size bed, ceiling cornice, it has everything needed to charm the Little Guests passing by.


Rest and relaxation

Once the suitcases were set down, it was peace and relaxation time. The hotel’s concierge guided our steps to the hotel’s brasserie, Les Fenêtres, whose culinary brigade is orchestrated by Chef Lionel Levy. Scattered on the terrace, the tables are all facing the Old Port, foreshadowing a unique moment in an exceptional setting. The service was fast, warm and cheerful, and the cuisine incredibly tasty. Although we did not have the opportunity to visit the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, the Alcyone (open for dinner only), we have no doubts about the quality of the dishes, also signed Lionel Levy.

“The watchword: good mood!”

After comfort, a little more comfort. Having previously reserved with the concierge a one-hour time slot for a session at the spa, we joined this space where well-being and comfort reign, wrapped up in our cosy bathrobes. Fully compliant with current health regulations, the Spa by Clarins is calm and quiet. We therefore took advantage of the heated indoor swimming pool, the hammam and the solarium. We only came across one family having a good time in the pool, the children splashing their parents, the parents throwing the children into the water… the watchword: good mood!


A top-notch concierge service

According to us, holidays are synonymous with rest and local discoveries: being near crowded places was not an option! Already well aware of the tourist places to avoid, we took the gamble of letting ourselves be guided by the recommendations of the hotel concierge. Thanks to their advice, we discovered a gourmet address: Au Coeur du Panier. This restaurant, which we would describe as semi-gastronomic, offers a refined menu inspired by regional cuisine. Snacked scallops, lemon-ginger sauce, polenta and old vegetables, and even burgers with foie gras and summer truffles, here are the dishes that delighted our taste buds!


Our recommendations

After 4 days spent in Marseille, we were able to find some local addresses where to go to spend a nice time with the whole family.

Gourmet tribes won’t miss the sensory experience proposed at Une Table au Sud. Proud owner of one Michelin star, this gastronomic restaurant is run by Ludovic Turac, a Marseille Chef in love with southern cuisine, and his wife Karine Turac, a great sommelier and room manager. The produce is fresh: the fish is delicately chosen every morning on the Old Port, the seasonal vegetables are harvested in Provence, the wine selection is composed of as many small winemakers as great vintages. A la carte menus, in 3, 5 or 9 courses, the choice is yours!

Nestling in the Panier, the historic district of the city, Le K is a rather relaxed bar, totally kid-friendly. While we were enjoying a peach smoothie and a local beer, children passing by were having fun in the traditionally decorated and authentic interior room. Outside, the street atmosphere is also warm as all the local restaurants and shops all know each other!


After this emotional stay, we can only recommend the Intercontinental Marseille, perhaps advising you to avoid the hot seasons or to get a car so that you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and discover the Côte d’Azur beauty of the Calanques.


Thank you, Intercontinental Marseille,
Thank you, Little Guest!
