I travel a great deal but I seldom take the time to write a review. My visit to the Ski Lodge Engelberg inspired me to share my experiences. Firstly, it is end of the season here in Switzerland, but the skiing was still good on the glacier and the town is quaint and includes a 12th c. monastery. Back to the hotel, it really excelled in every area. From check-in the staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly (directions, power adapter, check-out, you name it). They all really seem to care about every traveler having a great experience. The food in the restaurant was every bit as good as that served in New York or London. I mean the menu is so creative (creme soup with aged dried beef or chicken with chorizo, many more.....), the wine list has excellent selections including some local vineyards and the service impeccable. Much of the staff is from Sweden as the owners are Swedish and I learned that most can pull off aerials on the slopes as well. The rooms are standard but many have views of the Alps and it should be noted that the beds are super comfortable. I was officially relaxed after the best nights sleep in recent memory on the first night! The bar and sun deck is the perfect afternoon meeting place. I was told that it is a hot spot during the winter season. This is a hotel to seek out as it really has it all.
