Lille has a wide and varied range of accommodations, from grand historical residences to funky, modern pieds-à-terre.
The Hotel Clarance is a luxury five-star boutique property in the old town. A mere 16 rooms and suites share this 18th-century mansion, dedicated to art, poetry and the good life. This is not so much a (Relais & Châteaux) hotel as a cultural institution, with an innovative on-site restaurant to match. A favourite of returning guests is the Clarance Suite up among the old timber roof beams.

Whether the evening has just begun or is coming to an end, the lounge is open for travellers and locals to find live music and DJs, cool drinks and warm company.
