Barely. The location alone would make this a gem, everything else about it makes it a diamond.
Perfect husband and I made this reservation with trepidation, after reading some of the reviews. Words like "old", "tired", and "stuffy", gave us pause. We are SO glad we didn't let that sway us. This is an incredible, lovely, gracious, and utterly gorgeous old European hotel. If you want minimalism and sushi- then head to the "W" in Dallas. If you want to experience life as it used to be-with all the amentites- go here.
The staff were wonderful, not snobby at all, Hint: treat them like you want them to treat you. If you act reserved- they may treat you that way. Their goal is to make YOU comfortable. Our room did have traditional furniture- but it was spotlessly clean, and not in disrepair. Bathroom was luxurious. View of the lake and Alps- unforgettable!
Breakfast was delicious, ate dinnner elswhere due to daily activities, but finished each day in the enourmous lounge area with wine, while listening to a tuxeo clad string quartet. Old world grace and luxury.Two conclusions: I was born too late, and we'll be back.
