Stopped in Lucerne and choose this hotel through AEV due to its prime lake front location. Rooms were very nice, only issue was due to age the air conditioning didn't cool the rooms very well. Terrific lake front with long shaded sidewalk and wonderful cafes. Close to the old town center with great restaurants and shops. Lucerne is extremely expensive as is most of Switzerland we have found. The only spot we found great deals was at the top of the Eiger Mountain at the Top Of Europe where prices on watches etc were actually reasonable and much less than in the cities.
Service at hotel was wonderful and the staff is great. The only other disappointment was the weak breakfast offering which was included in our room price by AMEX. We had much better selection etc in Zurich. Probably would opt to stay at a nearby hotel next time perhaps the Schweizerhof down the street.
