We stayed here with a 2.5 years old in summer. It was our first visit.
Among all the luxury hotels in Gstaad, this is the most classic choice. It towers above Gstaad, everyone knows "The Palace". It is in family hands for over 100 years, and you do get a feeling of a boutique family operation while you stay here.
Our expectations were high, and we were not disappointed. We got a newly refurbished room on a higher floor and albeit it wasn't huge, it was very pretty, very comfortable and very well equipped with luxury brand amenities, all the way down to a special bath robe and slippers for our little one.
The service is great, very warm and welcoming and it seems every staff member has graduated from hotel school in Switzerland.
We enjoyed a fabulous continental breakfast with a great view of the alps (great selection but not much choice for Asian guests), the other meals we ate downtown.
There is a good program and god facilities for children. From kids menu to brand name baby chairs to indoor playground, activities and cinema with popcorn kids do get a special treatment at the Palace.
Generally travelers to Gstaad tend to be above 50 years of age, a good portion in pension already and the guests of The Palace Hotel seems to fall into that pattern.
We can recommend the hotel to any family who is looking for a peaceful luxury time out, who want to experience an old fashioned charm of the alps.
