We weren't quite sure where to stay as we made a last-minute decision to got to the Loire Valley and many of the hotels in recommended cities were booked. We are a family of 4 with two teens so need a room with bedding for everyone. While a bit pricey, this was a very nice room. There was a trundle bed for the kids and the bathroom was large and quite impressive (included a large antique dresser, slippers for everyone). We had a view of the street which has a tram line, shops (which were mostly closed while we were there), etc. The breakfast was pretty good but there is a charge for it. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was a pain and tricky to get to (and an additional charge) but you can park out front to load and unload luggage.
My only concern with this hotel was the city of Orleans itself. It's not very far from Paris so we had to do some extra driving to get to the castles we wanted to visit. It is also a large city without much charm. There are some beautiful, picturesque towns in the Loire Valley so if you plan ahead, it would be better to stay there. All in all our room was excellent so if you want to stay in Orleans, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
