L'Imperatrice is the best amongst the limited number of choices in the center of Fort-de-France and is the pick by default. It some ways it is nearly a classic Great Hotel. From the outside, building looks like a cross between a wedding cake and an ocean liner. High but subdued style inside throughout, some deco elements. Pictures here capture the essence pretty well. Common areas -- lobby, bar, restaurant -- though small feel cozy and intimate, furnished traditional tropicale, pleasant ambiance. Room comfortable, quality fittings and updated. Open air window in bathroom a nice touch, although beware the mosquitos. Ok, several type of rooms here, priced at euro 130, 110, or 95 (single occupancy rates, low season). Top rooms facing park with private balcon are spacious but get the street noise. Ones in back (euro 110) somewhat quieter, and above third floor there are open views in direction over town, with churchbells serving as alarm clock. Smaller rooms (95 euro) on 5th floor vary in size: some closet-sized, some narrow with two-single beds: corner room #54 was great choice for solo stay. Not ideal are roooms on each end of the 4th floor adjacent to space catered for events which get noise. The elevator here is a real antique: a noisy, creaking thing -- be sure to minimize movement when getting conveyed in it. Breakfast was included in this stay -- continental, fresh-made, good. Terrace cafe at street level good for lunch and early evening food and drink. After 10:30 p.m., no reception, night man handles the door. Would think that non-French speakers could get by ok enough here.
