About 5 years ago I stayed at Hotel L'Esplanade with my husband, and I just returned from a long weekend there with my adult daughter. Loved it both times! Since I was going with my daughter, I wanted a room with a little "space" for each of us. The loft rooms offer a king bed above and a sleeper sofa in the living room area below. In addition, although we had to share the shower in the bathroom off of the loft area, there was a 1/2 bath below for my daughter's use.
Hotel L'Esplanade does such a nice job of pampering. A little welcome basket in our kitchen included some teas, honey, a baguette, etc. "just to get you started." Refreshing fruit water is always available in the open-air lobby, and a few bottles of "help yourself" wine are placed in the lobby at dinnertime. Cheers!
The pool is just beautiful, as are the grounds. Since the hotel is located on the side of a hill, there is a lush footpath that leads down to restaurant row. Contrary to a few other reviewers, we found this a delightful walk in the evening.
The web site says they "prefer" a 5-night stay in season, but don't let this stop you from trying for a shorter stay if that is your desire. We were able to arrange a 4-night stay with no problem.
This was a beautiful spot...and I'd be thrilled to visit again!
