After two night at the Hotel Indigo, I switched to the InterContinental to burn my stay certificate. The hotel goes for $500 a night during peak season, a price that is only reasonable when quantifying the value of the redemption.
The IC Marseille is a beautiful hotel that sits on a perch overlooking the Vieux Port. It's like something from a movie. Indeed, it is featured in the TV series Marseille. The best part of the hotel is the view from the terrace, a view that was not available from my room.
