Starwood Options in Marseille

The #2 city to visit this year is Marseille, France. Sadly, this wonderful culture capital of Europe is shutout from Starwood options. The closest Starwood option is about 200km away in Nice:

Nice to Mareseille

As you can see from the map, this is quite an adventure, and it would never be an option to stay in Nice to commute into Marseille. In fact, upon further review it appears that Starwood, Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt are not present in this major city. Of the big hotel providers, only Intercontinental is present.
