Chartres is a lovely town to visit. Besides the cathedral, iIt has lots of options and price-points for lodging, a great variety of restaurants and many fun and interesting things to do. I would definitely recommend staying more than one day!
The tourist office is one block to the south of the cathedral in the Maison du Saumon, a historic building in town with timber beams.
The staff is helpful. Ask for what you want. There is usually someone who can help you in English.
