Stayed three night in this hotel during the weekend of the famous yearly Fontainebleau horse show jumping competition. The room was a standard double, facing a lovely hotel's park, and a somewhat abandoned tennis court. The parking is very extensive, and free, which is great. The front desk staff is very helpful, nevertheless failed to mention that the breakfast was only available until 11 am ON THE WEEKENDS, otherwise until 10 am. The hotel restaurant is closed during the weekend, and only snacks are available. Why? It's still a mystery to me- since Fontainebleau is a very much long weekend tourist destination...The restaurant only opens at 19:00pm on Sunday, so we had dinner there, and were very disappointed. The stake that I ordered rare, was so overcooked, it tasted like rubber. The service, overall, is very slow, and we actually had to go around the hotel (reception, etc) to find a barman to serve us some beer and juice at 17:00pm....It's hard to get to the center of Fontainebleau with a car from the hotel, as you have to make a detour of about 1,5 km, I guess it must be easier walking. Overall, we appreciated the quiet gardens and easy parking. Wifi is free, but you have to re-log on every time, even if you've been away for 2 minutes... Name, last name, email, etc...it becomes a drag after a while. Good hotel, but only for business travelers, who stay during the week. Not a great weekend tourist destination.
