Fodor's Review

On Chartres's main square, not far from the cathedral, this converted coaching inn warmly evokes the 19th century; many guest rooms are outfitted with brick walls, attractive antiques, lush drapes, and modern bathrooms (the best are in a separate turn-of-the-20th-century building overlooking a garden, while the most atmospheric are tucked away in the attic). Downstairs, the stylishly decorated—and Michelin starred—Georges Restaurant serves such delicacies as pheasant

pie and offers prix-fixe menus. It's closed Monday and there's no dinner Sunday, but the hotel's La Cour brasserie is open daily.
