Will and I are staying at the Hotel Columbier in Colmar, France. The hotel is located in the heart of the old town center. There is generally parking in front of the hotel, but arrive early to get a spot.
The hotel has wi-fi, air conditioning, and it is a great location for walking the downtown area. The staff is helpful. The rates sky rocket in the busy tourist season, but we were fortunate and got an apartment for 130 euros.
This is the house across the street from the hotel. In a city which gets the least amount of rainfall in all of France, this means a lot of watering by hand for the many flower pots and boxes.
