We stayed at Le Faucigny for one night on Jan 2nd, 2013, together with my husband and my 7 year old son. The hotel is located very centrally in Chamonix, few meters walking from the pedestrian area. They have 7 parking places, which were all taken, so we had to park in the 2 min walking distance public parking (8 Euros for the night).
The building is old and charming, the interiors are modern style decoration and pretty new, I loved it. We had a second (top) floor room with only roof window, nicely decorated, but a bit small if we would have had to stay longer. Complimentary sweets and all necessary towels, etc were there, perfectly arranged to welcome us. Mind that there is no elevators, but very welcoming girls at the reception offering to bring your luggage.
Spa with sauna and bubble bath is nice and clean, with extended opening times and access allowed to kids.
Breakfast really good, even if a bit expensive (12 Euros each for adults, 6 for kids). No restaurant in the hotel.
I would highly recommend the hotel for short staying, to enjoy Chamonix life and wonderful sight.
