Fairmont Montreux Palace has always been at the top of the elite in the international hotel business. In 1928 it was one of the founding members of the well-known association The Leading Hotels of the World, which unites the most prestigious hotels of the world.
Like all elite hotels, Fairmont Montreux Palace welcomes clients with sumptuous cocktails. Upon arrival at the hotel, guests are instantly plunged into an atmosphere of luxury, elegance, and refinement. The hotel décor has been considered down to the finest details. No guest will fail to be delighted by the frescos, stained-glass windows, wooden furnishings and the crystal lustres from the turn of the last century. The hotel has had the honour of welcoming such legendary visitors, as Richard Strauss, Vladimir Nabokov (who stayed at the hotel over a period of 16 years), Mikhael Gorbachev, Michael Jackson, and Sophie Lauren.
Recent years have seen the addition of modern comforts to the refined elegance of this palace: air conditioning, satellite TV, Internet. But beyond all the usual, Fairmont Montreux Palace also has the benefit of an exciting Sunday supper spread, the hospitality of Harry’s New York Bar, the sounds of music drifting from the hotel’s disco and the relaxing procedures at the Amrita Wellness Spa Centre.
Fairmont Montreux Palace is situated in Montreux, the well-known Swiss resort which enjoys a particularly mild and pleasant climate thanks to its privileged location on the shores of Lake Geneva and at the foot of the Swiss Alps. It is a 45-minute drive from Geneva airport and a 2-minute walk from Montreux’s train station.
Withdraw from the world into palatial opulence and enjoy 235 luxurious rooms and suites, most of which offer residents a spectacular panorama of Lake Geneva. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, cable TV, radio, telephone with an answerphone, WiFi and Internet points.
