Subject: Grenoble
Hi Don, You didn't specifically ask about accommodation in Grenoble but there is a nice centrally located Ibis Hotel. While I never stayed there as I was studying it was a good hotel. Also if you have time you can hike up to fort Bastile that overlooks the town. It gives a good view of the city.

Just to let you know you Grenoble is a great location for day trips. I have listed times by train or bus below

Annecy-2hrs by train Geneva -2 hrs by train Chaminox-3 hrs by bus

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any specific questions about Grenoble as I spent 3 months there studying French in 2001.
