We had planned an extensive trip to the South of France. Having stayed in Avignon and Avignon Neuve ( across the river) on this trip we wanted to be in the city. In fact this was a planned one night stay, so having a place to park our rental car and the desire to be close to some good places to eat was high on the list. We arrived a bit late in that as always, the rental car places ( all of them) seem not to be able to deal with advance paid reservations. Enough of this side bar, we arrived and found the hotel to be in a very nice spot overlooking the main square just down from the Palais du Pope. Our room overlooked the square, but was high enough that any noise from the bars and cafes was negated. Overall, the room was very nicely decorated, the staff was exceptional, and access was easy. We were on the start of a month long trip so we have a bit more luggage than normal. Only one issue, along the line, the shower had a tile near the bottom that had come loose and a small amount of mold was there. When we told the desk manager the next morning, she was very apologetic and offered us some nice "gifts" for our inconvenience. In that the room and common areas overall were so nice, I am certain they took care of this immediately. As to dining, there are several very nice places close, in fact we had one of the nicest meals we have enjoyed in France in many years.
