We stayed at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace for two nights during our recent vacation in Switzerland and France. The property is beautiful and luxurious! We booked one of the Signature rooms with a Lake view, which was quite expensive, but the room was absolutely gorgeous, with stunning views of Lake Geneva. This is a large hotel, so it was... More

It might be the most expensive, but if your in the mood for luxury we could not recommend the Montreux Palace highly enough. We spent 3 days enjoying the Jazz Festival and seemed to have chosen the hotel where all the main band members were staying (think bumping into Carlos Santana), which was unexpected! It happened also to be my... More

Our stay at the Fairmont was nothing short of spectacular! We had a beautiful one bedroom suite with a view of the lake. The daily water and fruit were delightful and a nice treat when coming back from our daily adventures. Everything about this hotel was luxury!

We unfortunately only had the pleasure of spending 1 night here on our Scenic tour. This hotel is in prime position opposite the lake and quite magnificent. We were upgraded to a lake view room which I highly recommend as they have a delightful little veranda that you can sit with a drink and relax while taking in the lake... More

The success of the hospitality industry the world over is based on customer satisfaction. The establishment's ability to be flexible and responsive to the needs of a paying customer is paramount to good reputation and returning customers. This particular hotel does not seem to care. The answer is always NO to any request! Given you are at a prime location... More

Great vibe. Cocktails flowing. Sit outside on the footpath to enjoy the delightful Swiss summer and watch the world go by. Beautiful view of the lake when the festival is done for another year. Been here summer and winter. Always great.

Beautiful hotel. Rooms are good sized. Very helpful staff. Good restaurants,provided plenty of bottled water for no charge. Only complaint was the cost of laundry service. It was much higher than what I have spent in other hotels (Marriott and Kimpton).
