From the outside, this is a classic 19th-century hotel building with old-fashioned charm to spare, but the inside tells another story, with a smart modern look and efficient service. A short hop from the train station and Lucerne's Old Town, the Renaissance (part of the Marriott chain) delivers an artful combination of business- and pleasure-friendly amenities. Modern, mid-size and well-kitted-out rooms feature autumnal color schemes, ornamental stucco details on the ceiling, docking stations, rainfall showers, and seating areas. The hotel's scarlet-hued restaurant deals in South American flavors, while the stylish Blue Bar is a good spot for cocktails and DJ-spun sounds (plus cigarette smoke). Both establishments are popular with non-guests, which makes for a little more noise than you might expect.
