We stayed at the Novotel two nights at the end of August, during the Braderie de Lille. It had a great location directly across from the Lille Europe train station. When we arrived in the evening, they were a bit short staffed, as one of the front desk employees was on break, leaving only one person on duty. He was extremely helpful, and went out to the parking lot to help us unload from our shuttle, but we had to bring the suitcases up ourselves.
The rooms were huge - our family of five could easily have stayed in one room, but Booking.com would not allow it, so we had two rooms. Each room had a queen bed, with a trundle bed underneath. There was also a sofa bed.The bathrooms were spacious and clean.
The hotel did not have a restaurant, but an expensive breakfast was available. There were lots of affordable restaurants nearby so that was not an issue.
The front desk was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. The hotel was a short walk to a large shopping mall, and the centre of Lille. (While passing the Lille Flanders station, we got stung by pepper spray used to dispel a disturbance by drunken youths!)
The Braderie was wild - thousands of shoppers crowding the downtown streets, but the hotel was situated off the main route, so was quiet.
