Restoration has taken this 1865 grand dame firmly into the 21st century, with glitzy touches such as the burled-wood entryway and a vast Belle Epoque lobby that spirals off into innumerable bars and tea salons. There are plenty of facilities, including a sprawling spa with a private room reserved for couples. Guest rooms are gorgeous, woth smart fabrics, waxed wood floors, and marble columns. Nearly all take in the obligatory view over the meadow to the Alps, with the
snowy peak of the Jungfrau crowning the far distance. A casual restaurant, La Pastateca, joins the flashy formal dining room, La Terrasse, but don't forget to check out the Jungfrau Brasserie, a mammoth, leaded-glass-and-carved-wood Victorian concoction almost as delicious as its meals.
