which train station to get off to get to cour des loges...

Hi my family and I are traveling from Paris to Lyon for a weekend stay and we'll be taking the TGV down. We weren't sure which station (Part Dieu or Perrache) to get off? We're staying at the Cour Des Loges hotel and the hotel website said either stop is fine. Just wondering if anyone knew which station was closer? Thanks!

They really are about the same distance. All trains stop at Part Dieu first then continue to Perrache. I suppose a more important question is how you plan to get to the hotel from the station. If you are taking public transportation you would want to choose the one with the easiest link. One thing nice about Perrache is that since it is the end of the line you can take your time getting off the train. At Part Dieu you will have about 3 minutes to get off. Not sure if you are doing round trip but that would be the same case when boarding.

MorganB thank you so much for your reply. That is great information and I think I will choose the Perrache station as I am taking my elderly parents with me and they will need more time to get on and off the train. Thanks!

Glad to be of help! Another tip since you are traveling with your parents. You can board the train about 20 minutes before departure at Gare de Lyon in Paris. The trains can be very very long so there can be a bit of a walk on the platform depending on where your car is located.
