Concierge.com's insider take:
Located just outside the historic city center in a largely commercial district, the 68-room Burdigala caters more to business types than vacationers and is uninspiring despite its four-star rating. That said, the rooms are tastefully done with mass-produced furnishings that nonetheless manage to reproduce a vaguely antique air. The "tradition" rooms are decorated in cheery Provençal shades of blue and yellow set off by burgundy carpeting, while "luxury" rooms are done in more formal and somber dark woods and parquet floors, with marble-topped double sinks in the bathrooms. For something less standard, book the "Le Corbusier" or "Art Déco" suite; each is furnished in a manner befitting its namesake.
