Westminster Hotel & Spa While Nice's Westminster Hotel & Spa has a lot going for it, perhaps its best feature is its location: It's right across from the city's sea-front boardwalk—the Promenade des Anglais—and many of its rooms and facilities have great views out onto the promenade and to the Mediterranean Sea in the distance. Inside is no less lovely, with a darkly lit 4,300-square-foot spa featuring an array of hydrotherapy treatments and a beautiful pool with a countercurrent feature. The hotel’s restaurant, Le Duc, is equally special, with an open kitchen where white-clad chefs prepare Provençal and Niçoise specialties before guests’ eyes, along with an air-conditioned terrace area that looks out toward the Mediterranean. The rooms and suites in this boutique hotel are equally luxurious, with elegant furnishings and big marble bathrooms, and some of the suites have their own balconies with spectacular sea and city views.
