Badrutt's Palace Review
With its pseudo-Gothic stone and mismatched sprawl of architectural excess, the Palace is Switzerland at its most glitzy and glamorous, complete with its own ski shop and private instructors, an exlusive spa, and a high-society pedigree.Although the celeb count is lower than in its heyday, today there are more than enough Rolls-Royces and Lear jets discharging guests, and you'll find the Palace crammed with beautiful people and wealthy wannabes: in fact, people-watching in the lobby is a local pastime. Of the seven restaurants here, center ring belongs to swanky Le Restaurant, designed to resemble the main dining hall on a cruise ship. Guest rooms are bright and individually decorated, but can be surprisingly unassuming.
