We were on our honeymoon and checked in on October 8 and checked out on the 9th. So, we left our bags with the hotel concierge after we checked out while we were out walking around before leaving town. I guess it was our mistake too that one of our bag didn't have a lock.

Really nice and in a great location. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Rooms are really nice with one of the very best showers and a separate tub that we have had in France. A nice bar is her as well. You can walk to every sight in Lyon from here.

Stayed for a short midweek break with my adult daughter. Found the hotel on Expedia and it is everything it says - good location, quiet yet central, lovely staff who were more than welcoming and helpful. The twin room was spacious and had a view over the square. Even though there was a public demonstration on our second night immediately...

We loved the Hotel Carlton! The staff was amazing and so helpful with some shipping and travel problems we were having. The breakfast was beautiful and delicious; our room and bath were comfortable and spotless. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and the people who work there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Be enchanted by the Carlton Lyon hotel, located on the peninsula. Despite being fully renovated in 2013, it has retained its authenticity and personality, blending contemporary comfort with sophistication. Relax in one of the 80 tastefully decorated rooms, in the wellness center or in the cozy atmosphere of the bar. The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from the Bellecour metro stop and is the ideal base for exploring Lyon, with its opera house, museums, the St. Jean cathedral and more.StoryLocated between the Rhone and Saone rivers, the Carlton Lyon hotel was built in 1894 as a "petit palace" in Lyons. Punctuated by its forged iron balconies, dome and rotundas, its splendid Haussmann facade echoes the refinement of its historical decor.The hotel's "Signature" rooms also highlight artists who have stayed there. Travelers will appreciate immersing themselves in the splendid adornments of the many talents that have visited the hotel. ... more   less
