The warmest welcome I've ever received. So friendly! Not to mention she was efficient and thorough. I was quickly whisked up to my room by the porter. While I knowingly booked a room without a view, it was still momentarily disappointing the moment you actually see the room and confirm there is no view. However this room was a site for sore eyes! It was fresh and updated in the traditional alpine style. It was perfect, simple and luxurious. The L'Occitane toiletries were also appreciated. Next up, I took a dip in the giant pool. So relaxing having the pool and sauna all to myself while staring out on the glorious mountains! At 6.00pm the hotel offered a champagne welcome reception. REALLY! And you know what? Everybody joined! It was great. Nobody was too cool. It was so fun, cozy and festive - low lights, bar maids, champagne bottles poppin'. Made so many friends and became further endeared to the family of owners who personally came around to say hello to everyone. Such warm hospitality. Additionally, the hotel is well-located from every direction - it's just a few steps away from the BLM and is at the very end of town, so you can walk the full length and back quite easily. Breakfast was pretty phenomenal as well. Beautiful, extensive buffet with out of this world views eye level with mountain climbers. Can't say enough about how you should CHOOSE THIS HOTEL. If you're worried about the splurge, make this your splurge. It's worth it. True hospitality. I'd also recommend dinner next door at Eiger Guesthouse. Also exceptionally warm reception, generous hosts, great food and hospitality.
