  • Gorgeous interiors
  • Lovely patio
  • Architectural high notes, like the tower


  • Not the best price-to-value quotient
  • Cramped spaces in rooms and public areas
  • So much drapery and textiles: claustrophobes beware!

Fodor's Review

An education in traditional Lyonnnais silks and velvets, this textile-swathed Vieux Lyon classic—in a Renaissance-period convent with an impressive Florentine-style courtyard—is also surrounded by some of the city's prettiest traboules; most eyes are drawn upward to study the cylindrical rose-washed tower that looms over all, while the glass-roof restaurant—a former chapel—offers views of the hanging garden overhead. Each guest room is named for a famous silk-weaving concern and decorated in its goods; taffetas, plissés, and velvets cover walls, windows, and beds in daring, even startling styles. The signature specials at the restaurant—grilled duck breast, scallops roasted over coals, Charlotte au Chocolat—are well worth all the extra louis d'or. Six apartments with kitchenettes in an adjacent annex provide excellent value for longer stays.
