Fodor's Review

This palatial, Liberty-style hotel has catered to a demanding European clientele since 1863, and spacious salons and guest rooms still have lavish furnishings of the turn of the 20th century. But there are signs of modernity as well, including a redesigned bar, a low-calorie menu and gluten-free options at the restaurant, and extensive wellness treatments. The views, lakeside grounds, and amenities like a Jacuzzi tub in every room render this hotel a true luxury destination.
