Park Weggis is truly a great hotel. Its location on the lake is ideal as you can take the boat (free with a Swiss Pass) over to the hustle and bustle of Lucerne most any time you want then retreat to the peaceful resort town of Weggis. Granted there is not much 'exciting' to do 'in' Weggis, and that is the point. Quiet strolls on the promenade just taking in the amazing views of the lake are all you need.
Although there are enough restaurant choices, they are all Swiss expensive. On this side of the lake there are few cafes and bistros.
Regarding the hotel, they graciously upgraded our room to a Junior Suite for our family with 2 teenagers when they deemed the room we purchased through Jetsetter would be too tight for us. We are extremely grateful for this gesture as it made our stay more tolerable. Beds were wonderfully comfortable, even the sofa bed for the kids. Yummy down comforters and down pillows were a warm treat on our rainy nights.
The hotel also provided some wonderful welcome gifts for us and the children--above and beyond.
The spa at this hotel is absolutely stunning. We wish we had stayed longer to take advantage of it fully. In our time we only used the outdoor 4 sided infinity edge pool, covered by an awning. It's all absolute black granite with very cool red and blue lights. gorgeous.
Staff was extremely solicitous and accommodating…ready to meet our every wish. That said, there was a lack of familiarity and a sense of the stuffed shirt. This may be due to the level of hotel it is, a Relais et Chateaux.
Although wifi is free, we were irritated by it constantly. it drops you off every 15 minutes and requires you to re-login…a tedious process because both the login id and password are long numbers with no meaning--such that you must almost have someone else read it to you as you input it in order to get it correct. With 4 people and more than 4 devices….we were constantly frustrated. Our current hotel uses login information that is simply the hotel initials and the year 2013. makes more sense.
we were also put off that the dial # for the front desk is 666. If you have any connection to christianity, this number is offensive. When the staff told us, they joked that we would of course remember it. Is there a reason this is necessary or could they just change it to something more palatable?
Lastly, for a spa resort, the robes provided were totally subpar. They were undersized (and we are sized 8 women and men with only 34 inch waists) and they were thin, not fluffy and soft.
