Great choice for exploring Lyon


January 16, 2015


As others have already said, the staff here is helpful, and even sweet. We arrived without most of our luggage, and the reception staff volunteered to contact our airline and the Lyon airport to coordinate its delivery to our room. Also, the hotel is spotlessly clean and rooms are quiet with comfortable beds. At 22 Euros, the all you can eat breakfast is not inexpensive, but offers a good selection of quality food. For us, it was worthwhile to eat breakfast there our first morning. Like this hotel, Lyon's public transportation is modern and efficient. The hotel is linked to the main train station by a low-entry electric bus, line C1. The hotel is also linked to the center of Lyon -- Bellacour square -- by electric bus C5. From Bellacour, you can take buses and subways to virtually anywhere in Lyon, including the old city on the hill, where you can visit the Cathedral and Basillica. Buses C1 and C5 stop in front of the hotel every 10 or 15 minutes. The hotel is comfortable and convenient, a great choice for exploring Lyon.

Comfortable room and great staff


January 12, 2015


I made a reservation online,somewhat last minute while driving through this area on New Year's Eve. My check-in was flawless and the staff even recommended a nearby restaurant for dinner and made the reservation for was absolutely amazing! We got a comfortable nights rest afterward and had a very nice and complete breakfast. Very impressed with and will stay again whenever in the general vicinity.

Happy Holidays thanks to the Crowne Plaza...


January 01, 2015

Earlier in the week, we returned from a delightful four-day holiday to Lyon and fortuitously opted for the Crowne Plaza as our hotel of choice. The hotel staff – which set a new standard for attentiveness and amiability – and its location definitely enhanced our stay in Lyon. The Crowne Plaza is ideally situated between the Rhone River and the scenic and seemingly boundless Parc de la Tête d'Or. A bus stop positioned literally steps away from the hotel expeditiously whisks you to Place Bellecour in the heart of the city. Due to a recent injury, I was walking with a cane and was graciously offered an upgrade to accommodate my needs for an easily accessible shower. The front desk personnel’s dining suggestions were instrumental in fully appreciating the city’s distinction as a culinary focal point. I can only say favorable things regarding the Crowne Plaza Lyon and highly recommend it to anyone visiting this wonderful city.
