Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Barrière de Lille
777 bis Pont de Flandres, Lille, Hauts-de-France, 59777, France
It's hard to miss this glass, triangular hotel located just behind the train station, especially at night when it's bathed in blue light. Designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon, modern rooms and suites are sleek and sparse, with floor-to-ceiling windows and walk-in closets. The hotel's two restaurants and four bars serve fine northern European fare. In-house entertainment includes a casino with over 300 slot machines and 20 gaming tables, as well as a 1,200-seat theater. The hotel is a stone's throw from the Eurostar Terminal and close to Lille Flandres station. It's also walking distance to the old city center. The neighboring Parc de Dondaines provides a pretty backdrop for many room views and pleasant grounds for a postmeal stroll.
