Lyon

During my research here on flyertalk I realized that Lyon - a city I love - is not well if not at all covered recently.

I wonder what's a very good choice there at the moment. A mix of charming hotel, comfortable and good location.

What are your opinions and experiences?

Two choices in Lyon, though you certainly won"t find the same hotel quality that in Paris (no real 5 star, or Grande Dame in this city)
. Cour des Loges (excellent location in the "Old town", le Vieux Lyon).It fits your three requests (charming, location and comfort), service is warm (hotel managed by the Sibuet family : les fermes de marie in Megeve, la bastide de marie in the south among others)
. the sofitel if you're more into standardized 5 star luxury with generic room design

Thanks! What do you think of the Royal or the Carlton which seem to have very good ratings?

I would second Cour des Loges -- best Concierge in the city. Gerard is awesome -- he got us into Bocuse on short notice and even got me a signed menu sent to the hotel when I forgot to ask for one the night before.

We had a lovely top floor Jr. Suite which opened up onto the roof top terrace -- for the most part, it was a private terrace just for us, though all guests have access.

I love the city of Lyon! Great food, nice wandering around, and day trips! Cour des Loges is the most convenient location and they do have a great concierge, but I am not crazy about the rooms. I really like Villa Florentine which is on the hilltop with I think nicer rooms and still a good concierge. Only issue is taxi everywhere vs walk. View however is quite nice. It is my preferred hotel, but depends on importance of walking everywhere!
