The Best Hotels in Lyon – Forbes

Fountain at Place des Jacobins in Lyon – Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, France
Most people think of Paris as being France’s home of fine cuisine, but it is the city of Lyon, southeast of Paris, that merits that title. Home to the legendary Chef Paul Bocuse, who is considered one of the city’s founding fathers, Lyon is a perfect stop for Michelin-starred meals, impressive farmer’s markets, and the popular Antiques District on Auguste Comte Street. This city is also the gateway to France’s Rhone Valley—home to spicy, rich and powerful red wines. Below are —-hotels that deliver the best Lyon has to offer, reflecting the gastronomic roots of this French city.
Suite
Villa Maïa: Sitting atop Fourvière Hill, a panoramic perch over Lyon, this hotel is an easy walk to the city center and a mere one minute walk to the 1-star Michelin Têtedoie restaurant. Bathrooms are clad in Carrera marble, service is consistently rated top notch, and the views overlooking the city and Saone River are simply the best in Lyon. Interiors are crisp and modern with an artsy Mondrian-inspired aesthetic. The 65-foot long indoor pool, steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi and fitness room are on hand for proper relaxing. Also a member of Leading Hotels of the World.
Hotel Carlton
Hotel Carlton Lyon: This MGallery property by Sofitel is located in the city center on Lyon’s Presqu’île (a peninsula that is the cultural and commercial heart of the city). Built in 1894, this historic space was where the celebrities of the era spent their time. Sip a classic cocktail under the frescoed ceiling at the hotel’s Le Bar du Carlton or tuck into the luxurious ambiance of the hotel’s Codage spa with hammam. The Memorable Moment package features a behind-the-scenes guided tour of the best of Lyon’s gastronomy.
La Signature
Hotel de L’Abbaye: Stylish chic aesthetics and a wonderfully intimate vibe make this hotel ideal for those who seek a quieter, smaller property in the heart of Lyon. Their recent renovation (just completed in July 2019) and redesign by local designer, Maison Hand, resulted in a unique personality for each of the 20 rooms. The hotel’s restaurant and café,  L’Artichaut, is entirely market-inspired—is there any other type in Lyon? The suites are a best bet with corner sitting rooms boasting views of the historic abbey.
Cour des loges
Cour des Loges: Renaissance grandeur meets modern luxury in Vieux Lyon (old town). Come for the posh, classically opulent stay in Lyon’s Old Town and stay for access to their personalized, individual or group cooking classes from the hotel’s A-list of gastronomy experts. The one starred Michelin-dining experience at Les Loges features the cuisine of Chef Anthony Bonnet. After a day of gastronomy, retire to your room clad in silk wallpaper and accented with chandeliers and a hand-painted headboard—you’ll feel like royalty.
boscolo lyon
Boscolo Lyon: This property was one of the first hotels in Lyon (circa 1897) and with its recent renovation (completed in 2018); it delivers sophisticated, modern and elegant interiors. The heavy emphasis on whites and creams with dramatic pops of color and clever use of texture lend rooms and spaces a warming, luxurious ambiance. Both the hotel design and restaurant are influenced by Italian aesthetics—Angleo Restaurant features Italian specialties in a setting of black-marble clad walls.
InterContinental Lyon
Hotel Dieu Intercontinental Lyon: After a painstaking four-year restoration, visitors to Lyon can now enjoy the deluxe comforts of modern styling within the historic confines of one of the city’s most iconic buildings.  This historic landmark was originally a monastery and later, a hospital. The best seat in the house is in Le Dome Bar, where you can idle over a glass of Champagne and gaze upward at the ornate 90-foot high 18th century dome. Located along the banks of the Rhone River, this prime real estate is the perfect location for a Lyon stay.
okko
Okko Hotels Lyon Pont Lafayette: Book a room here for a refreshing spin on the traditional hotel experience. The property is sleek and modern with a residentially styled central gathering space (The Club) that offers all-day specialty snacks and refreshments as well as a business center and a small shop. In the evening, after a sip of wine in The Club, tuck into their plush beds draped in Italian linens and anti-allergy, eco-friendly feather pillows by Cocomat. Morning may be the best part of a stay here though with a breakfast spread that includes artisan teas, made-to-order coffee, macchiato and hot chocolate, and a selection of local pastries, jams, eggs and charcuterie.
