Fodor's Review

This local landmark opened its doors in 1888, and much of the Victorian luster of its common areas—with their colorful frescoes, crystal chandeliers, and ornate antiques—has been respectfully preserved. Some of the famous clientele, including Sophia Loren, Lauren Bacall, Stevie Wonder, Patti Smith, and Tina Turner, have signed the lobby's livre d'or (guest book). If you'd like a sleeker room, opt for the newer wing, where discreetly modern rooms are decorated in beige and gold. The balconies and terraces open onto lake or garden views. For the panoramic version of Lake Lugano, head to the restaurant.
