There was only one hiccup in the weekend getaway to Montreux... the room keys given didn’t work and after a long journey, tired and wanting to just get in, we had to wait for someone to bring up a new set. Once that was taken care of, everything was smooth and delightful. The

We had several renovation in the last few years: 2008 - 2009 With an outstanding reputation for this kind of work Richmond International set about gently restoring and redesigning key areas of the hotel bringing these up to the standards the 21st century luxury hotel market demands. The multi-million renovation including Public Areas, 3 conference rooms, the Brasserie and over 100 guestrooms and suites have been completed after six months. 2011 In collaboration with Richmond International 40 more rooms have been renovated. 2014 After Geneva, Zurich, London, and Paris, the 5th Montreux Jazz Café (and the first with its own street front) opened its door in June 2014. An especially laid-back slice of luxury, directly inspired by the atmosphere of the legendary music festival and decorated with a plethora of Claude Nobs memorabilia. The Montreux Jazz Café is a not-to-be-missed spot where you can catch the rhythm of the Festival beat all year round, in the fairy-tale setting of the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace. The new Funky Claude’s Bar is a great place to drop by or hang out late into the night, whether you’re local or just passing through the Riviera. Faithful to the world of Festival founder Claude Nobs, the decor and choice of materials invite you to settle in and chill out for an unforgettable moment at the best live venue in town. 2015 Opening of the MP’s Bar & Grill, a new dining experience at Fairmont Le Montreux Palace. Featuring refined yet relaxed dining spaces, outdoor terracing with an enchanting glasshouse for panoramic all season dining and a sumptuous feature cocktail bar, MP’s Bar & Grill is the premier grill destination in the region. 2016 In collaboration with Aedas Interiors London the five Bellevue Suites have been completely refurbished. Our event studio called “L’Atelier” has been created, a show room for all kind of events. 2017 30 rooms have been renovated in collaboration with Aedas Interiors London and the carpet in the public areas has been replaced Please do not hesitate to contact me again, if you need any further information. Best regards Gisèle Sommer
