All this Airbnb bouncing apparently was embedded in me deep as I recently took a few days in Luzern, which conveniently is not part of the lock down. Little did I know I’d be shopping for house stuff most of the holiday, when I’d planned to play tourist in the town where my grandfather visited and loved while in the army. I shopped til I dropped and then returned home to this gorgeous space on the hillside, the art deco Hotel Montana.
Hotel Montana could have easily gone bad, dated and dirty. Instead, it was like the best hotels in South Beach, historically preserved and expertly refreshed. The room was cozy, well decorated, and very clean.
The double duvets made turndown for one service very straightforward. Sleeping half under both was a bit of a challenge, waking up in a tangle.
A welcoming card and questionably shaped cake was left on night one beside my live orchid plant that somehow I’d managed not to kill in the four days of my visit.
The coffee and minibar areas were well stocked and replinshed daily.
My room also had this huge terrace overlooking the hillside. My neighbors terrace featured a hot tub. Probably for the best I didn’t end up with that room as I had no idea and hadn’t packed a swimsuit. ;-).
A small desk area sat in the corner.
And built ins for luggage, closet, and safety kept with the art deco theme.
The bathroom featured a massive tub that was really too big for one person. Lucky for me, there was a duck to accompany.
Always a fan of Molton Brown, it was nice to have a few mini luxe products to take away.
Overall, I absolutely loved Hotel Montana. An excellent restaurant, live jazz bar, funicular IN THE HOTEL, kind staff, and this gorgeous room. This was exactly the busy, but peaceful long weekend I needed, so a big thanks to Hotel Montana.
