After extensive research I ended up using Expedia to book this hotel to get a better deal than the hotel's website. This got me free breakfast and use of the sauna included in the price. Being a ski town, lodging options are thin and luxe isn't always as luxe as in a major city. That being said, Hotel Faucigny was a great choice. It was easy to find and had ample parking. The stairs to the reception is a bit tough to get a ton of luggage up. But the staff offered to help and they were helpful throughout our stay. They all spoke English among other languages and were up on all the local activities and restaurants. Maps were provided and knowledge of trails were very accurate. The only room available for our stay was on the 2nd floor (we know it as a 3rd floor) and there was no elevator. This was the only drawback of our stay. The room was small but efficient and comfortable. The room along with the bathroom were extremely clean. We had a view of the Mont Blanc through our skylight. The lobby was comfortable as was the breakfast/afternoon tea room. Breakfast was good with hot dishes along with pastries, cereals, yogurts, meats and a variety of beverages. We were celebrating an anniversary and the staff provided a complimentary bottle of champagne and lovely box of macaroons. I had dinner at two other hotels and toured their facilities. Overall for the price, Hotel Faucigny hits the mark
