Each time I visit Fairmont’s Le Montreux Palace I feel like it just keeps getting better – which is truly saying something since my visits over the past few years continue to be flawless. The Palace is indeed THE address in Montreux. From the moment you arrive at the hotel you are transported back in time – to a time when service and luxury were the norm rather than the exception.
This trip we had a Signature Lakefront Suite which was stunning. It had a large marble foyer with a half-bath off of the entry. There was a large comfortable living room featuring a work area and double doors out to a large terrace with a table and chairs overlooking the lake. The separate bedroom was large and also has double doors out to the terrace. The master bathroom was extremely large with double sink, separate glass enclosed shower and a large soaking tub all in lovely grey marble.
Perhaps it is some of the little touches that make the Palace so special. There is a daily fresh fruit presentation that is changed throughout the stay, twice daily maid service including turn-down (that is hands down the most attentive I have come across – it’s like they know when you are out and work their magic so that when you return it is always to a fresh room), and the large bottles of complementary water left bedside each day – and of course the Swiss chocolate at turn-down (when the room is perfectly prepared for a comfortable night’s sleep).
Daily breakfast in the La Palmeraie is something not to be missed (and all the better if you can secure a rate with breakfast included). As a food allergic traveler with Celiac Disease, the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace definitely looks out for me and in addition to the amazing standard hot and cold breakfast options (including eggs made to order) they always have a selection of gluten-free goodies for me to select from throughout my stay. Fairmont in general cater to special dietary needs better than any chain that I have come across with dedicated menus at all of their hotels that meet the needs of a range of food restrictions and preferences via their Lifestyle Cuisine Plus program.
Everyone from the front desk to the concierge cannot do enough to make sure your stay exceeds expectations. All you need to do is ask – from dining recommendations to reservations – all is taken care of immediately. There truly is no other hotel in Montreux that can compete with this grande dame. Each visit truly feels like coming home.
