The only bad part of our visit to Le Royal Hotel Lyon is that we could only stay one night! Between this fabulous hotel, the lovely city, and the outstanding meal we had at Le Cafe des Federations we will certainly be back to spend more time in Lyon.
The hotel is in a wonderful location with short walking distance to Old Town and many shops, cafes, and restaurants in the area as well.
Hotel staff was gracious, discreet, and ready to help in any way possible.
The decor is lovely; many/most of the pieces and furnishings were custom designed for the hotel, be sure to pick up a brochure from the front desk, it is quite interesting. Although a large hotel it feels inviting, comfortable, and almost like you are the only guest there (and we certainly weren't).
Rooms are generously sized with great bedding. Baths are lovely as well.
Breakfast is pricey but is generous and well done. If you are into just the "croissant and coffee" morning snack rather than a full breakfast there are a number of cafes and coffee stands within very short walking distance of the hotel.
Unless you can get a special deal, Le Royal is on the expensive side but is well worth the money. Good value.
