Very nice relatively new hotel close to the center of Chamonix. Minimalist (but largely good) design, fair-sized rooms (we had a junior suite). Rooms are well cleaned and maintained, everything works as it should. Free good wi-fi (lately it became a rarity in good hotels in Europe).
Hotel is short walk away from the bus station Chamonix Sud and from Aiguille du Midi lift (it's not a ski lift, unless you're going into Vallee Blanche). Sister hotel is much closer to the station though, and looks just as nice. Free outside parking, garage costs extra money. If you have a car avoid the buses and drive to ski lifts -- parking there is abundant and costs 1 euro a day only. Beats walking to the bus stop in ski boots. Ski room is great with individual lockers and clever drying system for boots/gloves.
Service is excellent, period. I very seldom encounter a hotel where everyone, including the cleaners, are smiling all the time and look like they enjoy doing their work. Ask the reception where to go skiing on any given day -- they'll gladly share the local knowledge, and in Chamonix it often makes the difference between a great day skiing and a miserable one.
Obligatory not-so-nice bits: all the lightigng in guest rooms is with awful "energy saving" lamps. Humans resemble ghosts, ladies cannot apply makeup, reading is near impossible, blue socks look exactly like brown socks. Bring a torch. Hot water pressure is variable, but looks like in Chamonix this problem isn't excusive to hotel le Morgane. Swimming pool is really tiny -- about 3 by 3 m.
But overall, it's a great hotel and a great experience. On this trip our friends stayed elsewhere, paid a lot more, got a lot less and were quite jealous.
