view web site ›'s insider take:

When you exit the Palais des Papes, dazzled and seduced, you'll be relieved you had the foresight to secure one of the 20 rooms across the street in Avignon's grandest, most gorgeous hotel. La Mirande is situated behind a 17th-century fażade in a 14th-century cardinal's residence that couldn't have been better appointed. You enter ornately carved doors and cross worn flagstones and elaborate marquetry floors past tableaux morts of clustered terra-cotta urns, Louis XVI mirrors with slightly worn gilding, and acres of silk brocade curtains. Mount the grand staircase to palatial rooms with tapestries and wood paneling, historically informed chintzes and toile de Jouy, huge Carrara marble soaking tubs, and divine views. Contrary to appearances, the rooms have AC, Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs that look like mirrors when not in use. As if more inducement were necessary, the restaurant, with chef Sébastien Aminot at the helm, is one of the region's top tables.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006
