We spent one night there (March 13th, 2007) in a junior suite on the 6th floor. The view is as great as everyone says but you have to hike up around 100 steps from old Lyon, which was quite a feat after dinner and drinks. Its also a long walk to the shopping district.
My only issue was that they charged us 30 Euros for a roll-away bed for our 17 year old, but instead insisted that we use the fold out couch which was so bad, she had to put the so-called mattress on the floor to make it at all useful.
The main bed was large (2 doubles put together) but, as is typical in most French hotels, the mattress was thin and hard, as were the pillows. Certainly tolerable but at over $550 a night we expected better.
I would still recommend the hotel if money is no issue and you don't mind being awat from the shopping area.
