Fodor's Review

At one of Chamonix's most desirable hotels, most of the beautifully furnished guest rooms have private balconies, with many (such as No. 33) offering unsurpassed views of Mont Blanc. Choose between rooms in the original building or Alpine lodge–style accommodations—with touches of contemporary rustic elegance—in the complex known as Le Hameau. A dip in the indoor-outdoor pool in the snow is a must, as is an après-ski massage in the superb hotel spa. In the dining room, Pierre Carrier's cuisine is as memorable as the marvelous mountain vista. Expect perfectly prepared and presented classical fare based on exquisite ingredients—from white truffles in season to impeccable game or seafood delicacies. The cozy Quartz bar features live music most nights and a delightful afternoon tea.
