This is a modern, comfortable, clean, and very well run hotel. The receptionist was able to set up a room for me almost as soon as I arrived (around 1030am), so that I could sleep after a transatlantic flight. (There was a glitch, in that room cleaning service entered the room in the morning, while I was sleeping, thinking that I was checking out.) I liked the location on the right bank of the river L'Oise near the beautiful new bridge, and convenient to downtown Compiegne (an easy 10-minute walk), several of the university buildings (even the Innovatiom center, where my conference was located, could be reached on foot in just over 30 minutes, or with convenient public buses), and the train station (an easy 10-minute walk), which was also the stop for the bus to and from Pierrefonds (a recommended half-day excursion). I did not use the restaurant.
