This is Ischgl's flagship hotel, elegant and romantic, and the only five-star superior in town. It's not an ancient hotel, as so many in Tirol are, despite looking as if a fair-sized forest must have been felled to complete its interior. Many celebrities visit Ischgl to ski or play their top-of-the-mountain concerts—Elton John, Tina Turner, and Lionel Richie included—and this is their favourite billet. In the center of town, it is also close to the main lift up the
Silvrettabahn. The food here, overseen by celebrity chef Martin Sieberer, is exquisite. You can also eat in the Baroque Hall, the Renaissance Hall, Maximilian or Kaiser Stube, or the Conservatory. Wine lists are outstanding. The spa is vast and imaginative, with features including a Cleopatra Bath.
