This was a wonderful hotel, but this is 2011, and I think that the public areas should have been air conditioned! The rooms were air conditioned, but not the beautiful lobby. So if we were waiting downstairs, we would be hot. Don't they realize that?
Another major problem was that the electricity went out for several hours in the morning. The breakfast room was very accommodating, but there was no coffee, no toast, no eggs, etc. Then later in the day, it went it out again! I just can't imagine this happening at a fine hotel. Lyon is not in a third-world country.
It was, however, a really nice hotel. Beautiful lobby, breakfast room, and guestroom. Great breakfast when the electricity was on, too.
