Carlton Lyon - MGallery, the little Lyonnais palace

Carlton Lyon - MGallery, the little Lyonnais palace

This lavish showcase of timeless elegance, nestled between the Rhône and the Saône, combines late 19th-century architecture and contemporary style.

Located in the prestigious area of the Presqu'île peninsula, close to the opera house and the Theatre des Célestins, this legendary hotel, built in 1894 and under the aegis of Carlton since 1925, stands proudly in its completely renovated Haussmannian silhouette. Nicknamed the 'little Lyonnais palace' since the 19th century, it has managed to protect its incomparable splendour throughout its 127-year history. Its wrought-iron balconies, resplendent dome, and elegant rotundas are a veritable celebration of French excellence.

Its new look masterfully combines the legacy of its flamboyant past and the modernity of its more contemporary furniture. Its iconic colour, “Carlton Red”, is always in the spotlight, flirting with drapes, plush carpets, and tapestries, and is found in subtle combinations throughout. The intimacy of the rooms, each named after an actor, reveal the delicacy of the decor in luxurious comfort.

Added to the pleasure of gazing are the pleasures of the senses when you discover the room service menu developed hand-in-hand with Le Centre by Georges just next door, run by top chef Georges Blanc.

The hotel bar provides a wealth of different options, to be savoured in moderation of course, including the signature cocktail, Rouge Carlton, in a cosy lounge atmosphere under the glow of pearl chandeliers.
