Pros: much cheaper than staying downtown, easy to get to downtown, breakfast included, free stuff (breakfast, internet), modern/seemed recently redone, accross from the tram stop from the airport
Cons: can't think of any

This hotel is located in the same building as 3 other hotel that lines the street where the tram from the airport ends (making it very convenient to get to from the airport). It is also right next to the main train station which has a subway station that will get you right downtown in a matter of minutes. The ground floor has a restaurant and the check in area which looks recently redone. Upon checkin, they gave us a little bag with a map of the town, some snacks and some water. The rooms are clean and big and there are a lot of options on the TV to choose from. Even though the hotel is right next to the train station, it is very quiet in the room at all times. There was free wireless as well, which is always a plus.

Breakfast was included in our rate and it was a solid breakfast. The options weren't endless but there was plenty to choose from. There was even a section of the buffet which featured organic products if that is your thing. The only complaint is that the croissants were always on their last leg when we went down at 10 am.

Safe, secure, clean, modern, with polite and helpful staff. Rooms are quiet with excellent bathrooms. Only downside is the 15-25 minute walk to the city centre and old town respectively. Must re-enter the train station and cross over to the other side to reach them.

Mercure Lyon La Part Dieu is a modern, well-run and comfortable hotel. It's location a few steps from the railroad station makes it very convenient for travelers arriving and departing by rail -- including those, like us, who opt to take the TGV directly to Charles de Gaulle Airport. The rooms are amazingly quiet thanks to two double-paned windows. The hotel located in a newer, more commercial part of the city but the center and old town can be reached in a few minutes by subway. We had one dinner at the hotel, mainly convenience, but there are many better dining options in Lyon, a gourmet paradise. Overall, it's a definitely recommendable.

First class, if you are accustomed to higher end North American hotels this is your place. 42 inch tv, large comfortable bed, amazing shower all in a decent size room. You can't go wrong here. And for 140 euros for the upgraded room it's a decent value, especially compared to Paris.

We stayed one night at the Mercure Part Dieu while en route home from a Rhone River trip. It is very close to the train station! But unlike many French hotels near a station, this one is very modern, from the art work in the lobby, to the restaurant, to the room. We had a view west and could see the Alps from the room. Staff were very helpful in giving us directions to a nearby museum, etc. It was a rainy evening so we ate at the hotel restaurant despite the temptations of Lyon's many great restaurants. The hotel restaurant offered a great selection with good wine pairings. Breakfast was also very good.

Room Tip: West facing rooms (likely at upper floors) have a view of the alps.

We booked three rooms with friends in June and stayed two nights. As a former travel editor used to the service standards and luxuries of Asian hospitality, I've rarely found European hotels in similar star rankings up to scratch. So I didn't hold much hope for the Mercure - we had a very decent rate as an Accor member, and were managing our expectations.
It was an absolute surprise and delight from the start.
Our room was spacious and well-designed, and for someone who's picky about cleanliness - spotless. The shower was sheer bliss, the bed large and comfortable.
Some mention needs to be made of the excellent service at reception. We were checked in by Nicholas, who was warm and helpful, especially when we mentioned some trouble with parking.
But it was Cecile who stood out for us at another point - she had finished her shift and was almost out the door when we joined the queue at the desk. Always friendly throughout our stay, she walked back, put her bag down and smilingly motioned us over. That has never happened in our two years living and travelling around Europe - we're more used to service staff rushing off on the dot or trying to avoid eye contact if busy.
Location-wise, we didn't have a problem - it's a quick walk to La Part Dieu, one of Europe's largest shopping malls, and there's easy transport access to the Presqu'île.
So in a nutshell, yes I would highly recommend it, especially given the rates they offer.
