Fodor's Review

Discovering this French family-operated hotel is like finding a bit of Paris near Union Square. Hosts Claude and Micheline Lambert arrived from their native Orléans 40 years ago, and over the years have renovated and decorated each room with prints of paintings by Picasso, Chagall, and Gustav Klimt. Many savvy repeat visitors know to ask about special packages and discounted rates. Downstairs, Restaurant Jeanne d'Arc offers classic French cuisine in a medieval scene set

off by stained-glass windows and artifacts depicting—who else?—Joan of Arc.
