Beloved of the arty crowd, the Windsor has to be the most boho-chic hotel in Nice. Its mission: to incorporate contemporary art into the decor not only of its rooms but of its public spaces too (the mural of a space rocket in the lift is quite an eye-catcher). Whether you choose to accept it or not is up to you, but if you do, make sure you check in to one of the 25 artist-decorated rooms. Work is by Olivier Mosset, Noël Dolla and Basserode, among many others. The remaining rooms, which have not been decked out by a named artist (that's about half of them), feature frescoes or giant posters instead. There's also a very stylish, very Zen fitness suite with a hammam and sauna, into which you can retreat should you suddenly feel your senses have been over-stimulated.
