Very Good Hotel Well Located

Pros: Location and staff friendliness.
Cons: No recommendation.
Location: Two Irish bars are located within walking distance, Unfortunately, neither was very attractive..
We overnighted in Lyon before boarding a Viking River Cruise. The hotel is located within walking distance of old Lyon, the tourist information center, and the river. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and the room was very comfortable. It is also well-located with respect of river cruise docking sites. However, getting there with luggage would be a chore, so we chose to take a taxi. The Travelocity air-lodging package made the hotel reasonably affordable. If we visit Lyon again, we'll stay at this hotel.

Posh room in the heart of it all

Staying in the M Gallery Carlton was a wonderful experience for our family of 4. We happened to be in Lyon on New Year's Day when many restaurants were closed and the staff really hooked us up with a reservation just at the moment when we thought we may need to eat in a chain restaurant instead. We had a junior suite which overlooked the water element in Place de la Republique. It was well-appointed. aesthetically pleasing and very comfortable. Each time we worked with the front desk staff, we were impressed by their friendliness and courtesy. While we did not get the chance to sit in the bar for a cocktail or utilize the spa, they both looked delightful. Next time!
