Cour des Loges

    French hoteliers Jocelyne and Jean-Louis Sibuet converted four 14th-century buildings into this stylish retreat in Lyon, the second-largest city in France. Cour des Loges reopened in 2000 with 62 renovated guest rooms and suites that connect to a central courtyard via spiral staircases and arched corridors. Inside the buildings, contemporary art and Murano chandeliers hang among Lyonnaise fabrics. Accommodations Suites include fireplaces, garden access, and beamed ceilings, and rooftop-level suites each have terraced gardens with gazebos. Facilities Heated indoor pool and sauna, meeting rooms that extend through inner courtyards for large gatherings, a piano bar, and wine cellar help create the total French experience. Dining The hotel’s two restaurants, the trendy Café Épicerie and the more formal Les Loges, are under the watchful eye of chef Anthony Bonnet, who won the prestigious Gault Millau d’Or in 2007, at the age of 24. Rates Start from about $340 to $855.
