Honeymoon hotel in Montreux/Vevey

Jump to last reply

We will be spending 2.5 days/3 nights in the Montreux/Vevey area for our honeymoon during the last weekdays of September. We have narrowed down our hotels to these two, which are about the same price and within our budget:

- Hotel de Trois Coursonnes in Vevey - city view room. This is their most basic room since lakeview is not in our budget unfortunately, and they do sometimes upgrade but we don't want to plan on that.

- Eurotel Montreux - classic or superior (larger room). These are their basic and one-step higher rooms. They also sometimes upgrade, but all rooms have lake views with balconies.

Montreux vs. Vevey would factor into our decision here, if one would be better for our honeymoon or better located for our activities. During our trip, we plan to spend time wandering the lake area by our hotel, walking the promenade in Montreux to Chillon Castle, seeing the Vevey market, taking a half-day trip to Yvoire, and spending the rest of the time at the vineyards. We will fly out of Geneva airport after.

It seems that the decision may be a nicer room with view in a 4-star hotel (Eurotel) vs. a less nice room in a 5-star hotel (Hotel de Trois Coursonnes). Other factors would be if the outdoor restaurants/ terraces would be closed by end of September, and if a hotel was on an especially noisy or busy street. Has anyone stayed in these hotels or knows the locations and can provide input on which would be better for a honeymoon?

Thank you!
