Superb as usual

Posted 30-Jul-2015
This is my second stay at the fairmont. It's as superb as always. The staff make sure you enjoy your stay especially the team at the restaurant. The rooms are very comfortable and equipped with all what you might need. The location is great to explore Montreux and surrounding regions. The buffet breakfast is great with lots of variety and good quality food. i was traveling with kids and they loved it too.

Excellent hotel in perfect location

Posted 05-Jul-2015
Pros: The room was really nice, and had a heated floor in the bathroom
Cons: The restaurant was very spendy for dinners.
The Montreaux Palace was perfect. A little hard to find, as our GPS would not find the address, and it was not listed in the Points of Interest as the Fairfield, but when we found the hotel we were very happy. The hotel was perfect, the room was awesome, and the breakfast was a really great spread.

This property is well maintained old palace , good staff , very nice jazz cafe (food and specialy nice staff) , room size and amenity is good , in my opinion ,because of building in opposite side of nearby avenue the lower floor view of sea is not good .

Excellent Hotel but our room had serious problems

Posted 09-Jun-2015
Pros: I was here 50 years ago before it was remodeled. It was fun to see it again. The corridors are amazing. Reminds me of "The Grand Budapest Hotel."
Cons: Don't give a double bed for two people when a Queen size was reserved.
Location: Very beautiful location. Made a one night stop by train on our way from Geneva to Venice. The train trip is highly recommended.
We reserved a queen size bed, but were given a double bed. This bed had only one small blanket suitable only for one person. This room, in its configuration, is not suitable for more than one person.

Iconic hotel

Posted 15-May-2015
The staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable and that was clearly the high point of the hotel, apart from all the other pluses that go with an iconic Fairmont property. The property is on the banks of Lake Geneva, where you can spend days walking, cycling, chatting, eating and drinking. We walked up to Freddie Mercury's studio, took a cruise on the lake and took a bus to chateau Chillon. A big thank you to all the staff at the Fairmont.

Beautiful, elegant hotel with wonderful staff!

Posted 05-Feb-2015 on Hotels
My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Fairmont before going skiing in France and were blown away by this majestic hotel. The view of the lake, the proximity to shops/restaurants, generous size of the room and the attentive, professional staff all came together to make an unforgettable experience. The assistance and friendliness of Jose, the concierge, was greatly appreciated and the cherry on top of an already lovely stay. Highly recommend the Fairmont!
