Only a few steps to the cathedral, with a friendly staff, the Mercure Chartres Cathedrale is a wonderful base for exploring the area. Public pay parking is across the street and easily accessed. The breakfast lived up to the Mercure brand. The rooms are very small, but ours was clean. The shower was outstanding.
We wandered the area around the cathedral in the afternoon, had a late dinner, and enjoyed Chartres en Lumière after dark. Walking back to the hotel felt very safe. I highly recommend the free light show at numerous locations around the city. Definitely do not miss the one at the Cathedral on three sides. We only made it to a couple of other locations as it started to rain. More
