Town to stay in Alsace

So where is your favorite place to stay in Alsace? We will have about 3 days or so. Our focus is on the route de vin--but we want to do sightseeing too---not just grapes. We will be coming from Dijon. Are we better staying in Colmar than Strasbourg? We like to be in a town or city that is walkable and with good restaurants (not nesc 5 star expensive, but still good food). So we don't want to be out in a vineyard or really small town. What towns do you like and what hotels? Anybody have experience renting apartments there? Thanks in advance.

Obernai is a nice little town/village with shops and restaurants.

We stayed in Ottrott which is down the road, but it is probably too small for what you are looking for.

Here's a site for hotels in the Alsace area.

We stayed in Strassbourg. Very walkable, and good food.

Colmar or Obernai for delightful, small town experience. Strasbourg is a big city, best to see and leave. Colmar is a delight, been there twice and would go again. Stayed at Le Rapp both times. Very basic. Clean but gloomy and stuffy. There are no frills there. I'd check for reviews on hotels. Great restaurant in Colmar. Chez Hansi, 23 rue des Marchands. Great food, very near all the old sights.
