My room faced a tiny backyard/shaft, which meant there was no view and a little warm, but it was nice and quiet (I had requested... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. When I booked a room, they kept saying it was a small, cozy room, I did consider trying to find a new hotel but I'm very glad I didn't. The room had a large closet which helped. The bathroom was small, but it was not a problem. We ate breakfast two days... More

There is fresh juice and good coffee. Choice of eggs with bacon and hash browns and very helpful waiting staff. For the rates and... More

I've stayed at Cornell Hotel de France twice in the past 2 years, both times for business. The first trip was for a week; the most recent was for 2 nights. Both times the welcome has been personable, calm, proper and pleasant. The rooms range from large to slightly cosy, and always comfortable, well-kempt and perfectly clean. The sitting room... More

This quaint hotel on Bush, just west of Powell, is family run and contains much more than one would guess from the street view. The rooms are small but very clean and staff are all very helpful. Instead of a self-service breakfast one would expect at a similar property in Paris, one is entitled to a full service cooked breakfast... More
