We were in heaven!! The spacious room had floor to ceiling french doors opening up to a little balcony with a stunning view of the bluest lake and pastel mountains. BIG easy chairs faced this view and we enjoyed our "happy hour" right there with room service snacks ( yummy coconut shrimp !) And drinks we made ourselves from the bar in the room. The king size bed was wonderfully compfy. The bed faces that view too. Great little coffee machine allowed us to enjoy that view with coffee in bed. Breakfast buffet is top notch. Tables laden with so many choices of everything you can imagine.
The pool and spa area is gorgeous. The front lobby with a giant sparkling chandelier over a wide curving stairway is luxurious. The concierge and front desk were so helpful and friendly! Montreux itself is so very beautiful. I loved strolling right from the hotel on the wide walkway all along the edge of Lake Geneva. Gardens galore...boats & restaurants, chairs to sit & rest....for miles all around the lake! Don't miss the castle nearby.we finished each day with a different cocktail/ nightcap in Harry ' s Bar right next door. Enjoyed the live music and the cocktails are creative masterpieces!
This place will give you memories that will be worth the price.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled as a couple

I have been to 43 countries. Montreux is as pretty as any place tag I have ever been to. The Fairmont Montreux Palace is spectacular. We loved it and had a wonderful time. It is wasting distance to everything. Our room was perfect. Very clean, and a great view of the lake, we were there for independence day August 1 and could see fireworks across the lake and from many directions. If you have the chance please stay here. It is worth every penny.

Room Tip: I don't think that there is a bad room in this hotel.

The building is huge, the team is fantastic, the service brilliant and the spa is breathtaking. Montreux itself is a lovey town right on the lake. The rooms are huge and well maintained. Nothing I could complain about. The beds are AMAZING. Hardly ever slept that well. Really a nice stay. Bit pricy.

Room Tip: Must be lake view.

The Montreax palace is in the best location with the most pristine view of the lake and mountains. The room was very nice with balcony. The food in the restaurant superb. Make reservations as the restaurant is very popular with travelers staying in other hotels! We had a wonderful stay.

Stayed: December 2013

It was our 10yr anniversary trip and we were upgraded to a signature suite from the junior one we booked. The room was wonderful and the view of alps was just stunning! Staff were very courteous. It made the place magical to me. I never felt like this before, even when I stayed in comparable 5star hotels in Paris or Hawaii! I would surely return again!

First class hotel with outstanding views of either mountains or the lake. Make sure you indulge yourself in the pool and the spa. Had magnificent treatments at the spa. Magnificent views of the lake. Stayed during the Montreux Jazz Festival and it was perfect location to go back and forth to concerts and walk back and enjoy delicious meals and sit by the pool.

Room Tip: Wanted rooms with view of lake. If visiting during Jazz Festival, rooms in front can be a little no...

Beautiful, beautiful property right on the lake and promenade. We stayed in a mountain view suite, which was updated and super comfortable. We had breakfast, lunch, and drinks on the property, and also used the pool -- which was amazing on the hot days. The Fairmont chain is always amazing, and this property didn't disappoint.
