I can't remember the last time I got an actual key for a hotel room (instead of a card/sensor), but that shows you how charming Hotel de la Marine is! We didn't pay for a view, so I wasn't expecting one - what we got was an amazing direct look at the remnants of WWII, right on the beach.
No fans or AC unfortunately, so it was really, really hot during the July heat wave. That said, sleeping right on the ocean (and next to so much history) really can't be beat. I also highly recommend the restaurant in the hotel - the mussels in cream were the best thing I ate all trip.
