The undisputed jewel in the five-star crown, the Palace Hotel, which opened its doors in 1906, is a regal blend of period details and modern refinements, seamlessly held together by sterling service. A Belle Epoque beauty overlooking the lake, facilities here are first-class all the way: high ceilings, marble columns, thick carpets, warm-hued luxury fabrics, original marble floors, a chic terrace, dreamy views over the lake, and a truly great restaurant, Jasper. All suites (there are 57) come with lake and Alp views, while double rooms have either the same (for deluxe doubles) or city views. Each room and suite is individually decorated, with some reflecting a more traditional influence, others boldly modern, and some a mix of the two. The Palace Spa is known for its excellent treatments and therapists, but if you need your relaxation experience to be truly memorable, opt for the private spa for couples, with relaxing soak session, a candlelit bath for two, neck massage, and wellness cocktail.
