Fodor's Expert Review Aigle Noir

27 pl. Napoléon Bonaparte, Fontainebleau, Île-de-France, 77300, France

This may be Fontainebleau's costliest hotel, but it does promise old-world elegance, graceful service, and oodles of atmosphere. Housed in a 17th-century mansion near the palace, the spacious guest rooms conjure up the past through period furnishings, toile fabrics, and antique engravings, without skimping on any of the modern conveniences. You can't go wrong if you request one overlooking either the garden or the palace.

PROS

  • period ambience
  • great location opposite château
  • emphasis on service

CONS

  • no restaurant
  • breakfast somewhat lackluster
  • some rooms could use a spruce-up
