Sorry for the delay in answering.

Car travel to Lille is a bit of a problem because of getting secure parking overnight at the hotel.

There are many hotels in and around the City centre with secure parking and it isn't necessary to stay on the outskirts of the City just because you have a car.

The Christmas Market is no-where near as disruptive, only a couple of streets near the Tourist Office are affected, as the September Bradderie market that takes over and closes about half the City.

We stayed at the Ibis Lille Opera, review posted, and they had there own secure parking - but it was about a 5 minute walk away from the hotel and cost €9 per day about 2 years ago.

Make sure when you book, and have it in writing, that you've reserved the Hotel's secure parking as street parking is very limited. Some hotels advertise Public parking - but that is not secure or guarded.

You will find plenty of hotels with car parking in Lille at this site -

www.lodging-world.com › France › Nord Pas De Calais › Lille

There are loads of reviews of Lille hotels with Tripadvisor and can be found using the Search facility.
