Highs & Lows

  • The staff at Hotel Le Sud are JUST. SO. NICE. They make you feel welcome and give you recs you can *actually* trust.

  • The interiors by Stéphanie Lizée are top-notch, but also down-to-earth enough that you feel comfortable here.

  • The verdant backyard and perfect pool. I could drink there every day.

  • The water pressure in our shower was surprisingly amazing.

  • The hotel just has happy vibes. It made us feel good every day.

  • Our room really needed a blackout shade — both for the nighttime street lights and morning sun.

  • If you come by car, ask in advance for hotel parking. If it's full, you'll have to park 7 minutes away.
