The hotel is what the earthly luxury is all about. The service is with one word FANTASTIC. This establishment depends on the service that the employees give to the customers. Our luggage came to the room before us, the girls in the reception are highly qualified and trained. They always have a smile on their face. If you choose to reserve from the internet don't forget to write your wishes, they will do their best to give you something more that you did not pay for. (ours was not met because it was x/mass season and the hotel was full.) We chose the a room with no lake view.(750$) The room was posh with a cleanliness and twice a day service makes it incomparable. The bathroom is the kind that you go in and you don't want to come out sort. The classic fare of, flowers everywhere, is very impressive.
BEWARE: Although the official rate of the Swiss Franc to the $ is around 0,90 (22/12/2012 it changes every moment) the best you can get will be 5% less than the official rate. So dollars add up very easily. At the bar two cocktails, two glasses of red Burgundy wine and two entrees and a salad (I admit with white Alba truffle ) will add up easily to 400$. There is no tipping as in all FS hotels 15% is included in the price. But if you want to make them happier live a small tip.
AH YES THE GUESTS: From barefoot Hindu gurus to burka wearing ladies and their children to over or scantly dressed Russian ladies that gives the hotel a very interesting amalgam. You always have a smile in your face when you see them all in the breakfast restaurant. Very good breakfast by the way. So go for it. It is not cheap but in my 50 years of travelling I never came across best and cheap. There is good and cheaper but never best and cheap. So if you are of my philosophy, instead of staying four days in good stay two days in best. It is a way of life. So go for it.
