My wife's job takes her to INSEAD/CEDEP several times a year, and I joined her for a short vacation last November after one of her trips. We only stayed one night at the Aigle Noir but left wishing our visit could have been longer. The staff was courteous, efficient, and spoke enough English that charades weren't necessary; the room was spacious, comfortable and clean; and the breakfast buffet is wonderful. The building is magnificently old, although the amenities were generally up to date. We got a package that included a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room and rose petals spread across the bed--quite welcome after a 12-hour journey.
We spent most of our vacation in Paris, but when I visit again in June, we'll spend more time in Fontainebleau--it's a delightful contrast to the city. Unfortunately, the Aigle Noir is fully booked during our travel dates. Tant pis! I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
