Overview

The Fairmont Le Montreux Palace is a grand Belle Époque building with lake and mountain views. It's in the lakeside resort of Montreux, which is famous for its jazz festival, and has been a magnet for artists, writers and musicians over the centuries.

The hotel is just across the road from the shores of Lake Geneva and the waterfront promenade that links the Château de Chillon, said to be Switzerland's most visited historic monument -- it's about 3.5 kilometres from the hotel.

There's a good choice of restaurants nearby serving everything from contemporary Swiss cuisine to pizzas and steaks. Back at the hotel, which first opened in 1906 and is listed as a Swiss heritage site of national significance, there are three restaurants and two bars to choose from. The light and airy MP's Bar & Grill has an outdoor terrace and specialises in prime cuts of quality meat and fresh seafood, while the laid-back Montreux Jazz Café takes its inspiration from the world-famous music festival that takes place each year in the town. Funky Claude's Bar, named in homage to Claude Nobs, the founder of the festival, is a popular spot for a cocktail, and La Terrasse serves a seasonal menu of Mediterranean-style dishes and has far-reaching views. There's also a comfortable lounge bar with a fireplace and a relaxed ambience.

Leisure facilities include a spa and a health club with both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, plus saunas, a Jacuzzi and a fitness room. The 236 air-conditioned rooms and suites are classically decorated, and some have period features such as French doors that open onto ornate wrought iron balconies with views of the lake and the mountains beyond.
