    Carlton Hotel St. Moritz
    St. Moritz
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 257 reviewsTripAdvisor (257)
    Free WiFi

    Built in 1913 and fully renovated in 2007, the Carlton Hotel is situated in one of the sunniest spots in the ski town of St. Moritz, Switzerland. Though past visitors commended the atmosphere of the gorgeous property, some pointed out it is not a true ski-in, ski-out resort. Still, all 60 suites and junior suites offer picturesque views of Lake St. Moritz and the slopes beyond, and accommodations come equipped with sitting areas, spacious bathrooms and private balconies (in some cases). When you're not skiing to your heart's content, spend some time in the Carlton Spa, which boasts indoor and outdoor pools, a sun terrace, a Finnish sauna, six treatment rooms and a fitness center. The hotel's staff also organizes and can help guests book activities like helicopter flights, horse and carriage rides, paragliding and cooking classes. Once you work up an appetite, head to Restaurant Romanoff for authentic Swiss breakfast and dinner, or make a reservation at the Michelin-starred Da Vittorio – St. Moritz for gourmet Italian fare Wednesday through Sunday. If you're craving a midday pick-me-up, pay a visit to the Carlton Bar & Lobby for afternoon tea on the sun terrace or by the open fire. Since the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz is affiliated with The Leading Hotels of the World, Leaders Club members can earn free nights and enjoy late checkout here.

    Hotel d'Angleterre
    Geneva
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 741 reviewsTripAdvisor (741)
    Free WiFi

    Not to be confused with the hotel of the same name in Copenhagen, Geneva's Hotel d'Angleterre houses just 45 rooms and suites. The hotel's accommodations are styled with classic decor and original artwork. In-room amenities include free Wi-Fi, LED televisions and minibars, plus additional touches like homemade chocolates and fresh fruit. Recent guests said the friendly staff members of this hotel shine: Many are multilingual and visitors praised their attention to detail. Other facets of the Hotel d'Angleterre that stand out include the Windows Restaurant – with views of the mountains framing Lake Geneva – and the Cigar Lounge at the Leopard Bar, a charming place for cigar fans to relax. Though travelers loved the restaurant's vistas, many noted the food was expensive and you could find a better meal in town. Pets are also welcome at this hotel for an additional fee; a pet concierge will assist with special walks and furry friends get some amenities of their own. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.

The hotel's 49 rooms and suites feature white interiors and wooden beam ceilings and accents, plus minibars, Nespresso machines, Wi-Fi and special touches like bedside LED reading lamps and movement sensitive night lights.

Other on-site features at the Widder Hotel include a library – stocked with books about Zurich, history, art and fiction – meeting facilities and a business center. But according to recent guests, the highlight of this hotel is its staff.

    Located within its own park that overlooks the Alps and Lake Zurich, Baur au Lac hotel has welcomed guests for more than 170 years.

    The Dolder Grand
    Zurich
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1253 reviewsTripAdvisor (1253)
    Free WiFi

    Lodgers found that the Dolder Grand lives up to its name in more ways than one. Perched atop a hill high above Zurich, the hotel, with its spires and 19th-century architecture, looks like it came straight out of a storybook. But don't be fooled by its old-world look: Accommodations at the Dolder Grand are as modern as can be, featuring sleek furnishings and contemporary comforts like in-room Nespresso coffee machines, flat-screen TVs with on-demand entertainment, power adapters and wireless internet access. Make sure to book a room with a view of the lake – guests say it's worth the extra coin. Lodgers also strongly recommend taking advantage of the wellness facilities on-site. The Dolder Grand offers an expansive spa, which features a striking, cave-like indoor pool, specialty medical services, a gym with personal training and fitness classes and four different running tours for those who want to get their hearts pumping outdoors. When it's time to dine, make sure to secure a seat at The Restaurant – winner of two Michelin stars. There's also a more casual option, Saltz Restaurant, which features an outdoor terrace overlooking the city. Service was reported to be nothing short of stupendous, but budget travelers should take note: a stay here is a splurge. Luckily, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 992 reviewsTripAdvisor (992)
    Free WiFi

    Founded in 1681 as an inn for gentlemen and rebuilt in 1844 to accommodate more guests, the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois has hosted all sorts of famous figures, including Bob Dylan, Charles Dickens, Napoleon Bonaparte and Pablo Picasso. And, thanks to a complete restoration in 2004, the property now meets national heritage criteria and offers a layout reminiscent of its early years. Guest rooms and suites feature period-inspired details, such as neo-classical decor and furnishings, plus modern amenities like flat-screen satellite TVs, free Wi-Fi and minibars with complimentary drinks and snacks. For a water view, request a room or suite with a balcony that overlooks the Rhine. Though several visitors cite high room rates here, many say the well-appointed accommodations and "exceptional" staff justify the splurge. Plus, travelers have access to a bar and two restaurants: Cheval Blanc (a three Michelin-starred restaurant that fuses modern French fare with Mediterranean and Asian flavors) and Brasserie (a French- and Swiss-inspired eatery with a farm-to-table focus). The eateries, along with the hotel's cigar lounge, all received high praise from past guests. When you're ready to venture off the property, you'll find many of Basel's shops, restaurants, museums and parks within walking distance. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    Beau-Rivage Palace
    Lausanne
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1467 reviewsTripAdvisor (1467)

    Few Swiss getaways offer more scenic views than Beau-Rivage Palace. This property is located along the banks of Lake Geneva in Lausanne, overlooking the mountains situated across the lake in France. The hotel opened in 1861 and has a long history of providing outstanding experiences to guests, having served the likes of Nelson Mandela, Charlie Chaplin and Coco Chanel. Recent visitors said all guests are treated like VIPs and gave high marks to both the smiling staff and beautiful accommodations. Standard rooms are decorated in an old-world style (think floral wallpaper and candle sconces), but kept up to date with modern amenities, such as free Wi-Fi access and Jacuzzi tubs. There is also a spa on-site, as well as an outdoor pool overlooking the lake. The most impressive features of the property, however, are the restaurants. Travelers can eat at Anne-Sophie Pic (winner of two Michelin stars), grab a casual bite at the brasserie-style Café Beau-Rivage, sample some sushi at Miyako Lausanne or indulge in Italian at L'Accademia. There's also the majestic La Montreux steam boat – the property's floating restaurant – a poolside eatery, a breakfast restaurant, a 75,000-bottle wine cellar and two bars. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.
