Overview

Highlights include friendly staff, top-notch cuisine and views of Lake Lucerne
Several past visitors complained of loud street noise in lower level rooms
Originally opened in 1845, the Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern used to be the playground of celebrities like Mark Twain and Leo Tolstoy. Today, this downtown luxury hotel still attracts a sophisticated clientele, and it has been run by the same family for five generations. All 101 rooms are equipped with downtown or Lake Lucerne vistas, flat-screen TVs, minibars and complimentary Wi-Fi access. For the best views, book a lakeside suite with a balcony. And if you're sensitive to noise, consider requesting a room on a higher floor: guests with rooms on lower floors complain of traffic noise. Travelers also say the hotel's staff members go above and beyond when accommodating special requests, such as surprising guests with birthday cakes and offering sightseeing and restaurant suggestions. And while the staff can reccomend great restaurants in town, be sure to grab a bite at one of the on-site eateries. The Restaurant Pavillon receives consistent praise from diners for its revolving list of international guest chefs, while Restaurant Galerie is a favorite for breakfast. Or, for an extra special meal, have lunch or dinner at Villa Schweizerhof, which is located right on the lake. Otherwise, grab a delicious (albeit pricey) cocktail and enjoy live piano music at the Schweizerhof Bar, or visit the spa to unwind with a massage or nail treatment.
