Bordeaux hotels are found throughout a historic city with a modern flair.

Not surprisingly, the hotels in Bordeaux reflect both ends of the spectrum, found in repurposed historic buildings and newly built towers. Bordeaux hotels encompassed more than 5,300 rooms, and range from hotels, resorts, bed-and-breakfast inns, furnished apartments, and vacation rentals.
The Bordeaux-Lac neighborhood came to life through urban development efforts at the end of the twentieth century. With a large manmade lake at the center, the district includes a public garden, a convention center, and options for lodging in Bordeaux. A short walk from the lake, the Mercure Bordeaux Le Lac Hotel (pictured) offers you 100 spacious rooms, complete with air conditioning, wireless Internet access, and accommodations for smokers and nonsmokers alike. The restaurant serves local wine by the glass, so you can sample the local bounty.
