On a once-in-a-lifetime (for us) trip to Normandy, where my father landed as a US Army soldier on D-Day, we stayed at the Grand Hotel du Luxembourg. We had chunneled by train from London and then driven 4.5 hours from Caliais, to find a spartan room over the street with no a/c and incredibly loud all through the night. The bar area was quite fine, the restaurant dingy and priced high. We ate elsewhere both nights we were there. The staff were mostly helpful, most of the time. The beaches and American Cemetery were so worth this however. We drove to the British landing area first, the spent several hours at the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach. Very moving and emotional. The area is spectacularly beautiful and imagining the horrors of 1944 was really quite difficult to say the least.
We had breakfast one morning and it was not good at all. The courtyard garden was pretty, although we didn't have time to sit and enjoy it. A room on the interior would have been much better I'm sure, but the constant street noise made it impossible to sleep through the night. We booked this through a travel agency, and will let them know the downfalls of this place. At least there was a lift...
