The newest feather in Paul Bocuse's voluminous cap, Dock Ouest aims for a more youthful clientele that cares more about stylish comforts than an out-of-the-way location. Roomy and bright, the sleekly functional rooms are done in a minimalist style, with hardwood floors, handy kitchenettes, and beds that are as comfortable as a cloud. The four top-floor suites are a great deal, considering their large private terraces with leafy views toward the river. You also benefit
from the Bocuse culinary acumen: breakfasts are above standard hotel fare, and the great chef's Bistro Ouest is just down the street.
