Le Parc des Marechaux is a lovely 19th century building in a park-like setting, on a quiet residential street just steps outside of the medieval center of town. The location is perfect, as it is easy to drive there, park in their private yard, and then walk into the maze of little streets that make up the medieval city center. Our room was small but comfortable, very clean, with a good bed, nice linens, and a good bathroom. The service was outstanding, with a very helpful and kind English woman at the front desk.
The only reason I am giving this hotel 4 instead of 5 stars, is that the decor is not to my taste. As other people have mentioned, the walls are dark and the furnishings are dark wood and Victorian in style. Some of the furniture is getting a little worn looking, and some carpets in the public areas are faded. However, I quickly became accustomed to the style of decor and enjoyed the general comfort, tranquility, and pleasantness of the hotel.
We had never heard of Auxerre as a place to visit, and stayed there chiefly because it was a convenient stop on the way to Beaune-- a two hour drive from Charles de Gaulle airport. The city was a revelation, with a beautiful medieval center, a multitude of half-timbered houses, and much to see. We wish we had scheduled more time to sightsee there.
If we return, we would stay at the Parc des Marechaux again.
