I wish there was more to be said from this hotel after driving for hours from Italy. Personally, the high point of my trip was driving through Mont Blanc. The hotel is situation near the water and within walking distance to a small and short historic street. There was not too much attractions in early March when I arrived other than the Casino. The hotel seemed relatively new. Parking was expensive 12 euros per day. Parking on the street is 1 euros per hour. After a quick check-in I was first given a junior suite on the 3rd floor but upon entering I was greeted by a strong stench. It was so bad that the bell man recommended me to switch to a different room. The new suite on the second floor was very spacious and comfortable with a great view overlooking the waters.
I was told that they had a great spa, however, I found nothing spectacular. There was a small indoor pool, steam room, sauna, and a larger outdoor pool. It was perhaps 4 degrees Celsius when I visited in March and all the pools are heated. I was the only one that ventured at the outdoor pool which was a bit relaxing. Overall, I think the spa was overrated.
The executive lounge offered great panorama view of the area. Food was lacking. There were over 30 people when hot food was served and it was gone almost immediately. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't seemed to want to refill...so people just started to drink all the alcohol. Once all the beer and wine were gone, people started to pacing around the lounge waiting for replenishment. Dining in restaurants in this area is quite expensive. There was a bakery within the historic street that had one of the best tasting sandwich I've ever tasted. Breakfast buffet was comparable to other Hilton chains in Europe, a lot of selection and fulfilling.
I was told during summer there will be much more activities such as water sports. There is also a golf course nearby as well as a tram that only operates in certain time of the year.
