Try http://www.logis-de-france.fr/us/

We've stayed in several of these properties and have had good experiences.

Bon voyage

While I haven't visited these hotels, they were my picks when I was planning to visit the Champagne region this May:
Reims: Gerard Boyer (www.gerardboyer.com, a Relais & Chateaux property);
Epernay (nearby): Hostellerie La Briqueterie;
L'Epine (nearby Chalons): Aux Armes de Champagne (www.auxarmesdechampagne.com);
Fere-en-Tendenois (sp? -- west of Reims): Chateau de Fere.

I'm sure you can get great & detailed information about these places with a search here or at your favorite search engine!

BTW, I e-mailed the tourist office of Epernay and received a huge info packet in the mail. They were great!

Have a great time.

Reinforcing s ...

I have never heard anything but glowing reports of Les Crayeres (Gerard Boyer). It is expensive, but I have heard it described as a bargain - some business hotels cost more! It's had all the top accolades from Michelin and Gault Millau for years. Also, I read one review that suggested that you can get privileged access to some of the Champagne houses if you arrange the tour with the hotel - it is so famous and celebrated that normal "rules" are not always applied!

Do let us know how it was if you decide to go.

Betsy,

Have you actually used any of the hotels listed at http://www.logis-de-france.fr/us/index.htm? The prices are so low -- should I be afraid of them, or rejoicing because I've found them?

Les Crayeres is absolutely the best hotel/restaurant in Reims. Gorgeous grounds, wonderful staff, and probably the best dining experience I have ever had! Tours can be arranged through the hotel for several of the champagne houses that are appointment only including Roederer, Bollinger, and Krug.

I haven't been there but have recently booked a 3 cheminee Logis-de-France hotel in Provence, and from perusing their hotels (including info on them at other sites) and others, I do not find them underpriced. They are not deluxe places, but are marked by their star ratings, but a modest 3-star hotel is not luxury, and a 2-star definitely is not. Those hotels in Reims are a little cheap (around 300F?), I would be leery of a hotel less than 500F for a 3-star, but be aware that hotels are a lot cheaper outside Paris, even in the larger cities like Nice, so that's part of the issue (maybe about 200F per night cheaper). Also, I think their website is a little outdated and that they state that somewhere on there, I recall the prices were maybe 4 years out of date, not sure. I booked one in Provence that was listed at 350-400F, I think, and the true current room rate was 440F. The French hotel system star ratings are generally a pretty good guide. If you want a "nice" hotel, I would not go below three-star, but I don't think the Logis assn has four-star hotels, they are more modest.
