We planned on staying in the Swiss alps this night but all the areas we wanted to visit were snowed in. Last weekend of may. The three passes thru the alps were closed.
We drove two hours down to Italy. Stopped in Lugano . No info. No wifi. Just drove round and after looking at the lake stopped here.
After two minutes in the lobby my wife comes out to the car and tells me this is going to be great. Reduced price and upgraded room. This was around 6PM.
Every thing from soup to nuts was outstanding. I can go into all the stuff we reviewers write about.. No need on this one. Just sit back and enjoy.
Yes it is expensive. We found out during our stay that it is a member on the"leading hotels".
We were heading to belligo on Lake Como and sharing a condo with a friend for a week. This was the perfect night for a couple before joining him.
I hope the hotel staff reads my review.
PS. I'm still mad about the bar service at the Lucerne Palace. Stayed few days earlier in late may. The Palace staff should come down to this hotel and witness service at its best.
