What a disappointment this place was. We checked in and unfortunately we had to leave Lucerne because of a family emergency back home. We never stayed the night. I explained the situation to the hotel night manager that we were cutting our stay a few nights short. I told him I understood we would be charged for the night but I would appreciate not being charged for the rest of our reservation. He assured me he would speak to the hotel on our behalf. Now a few days later I received an email that they would not make any adjustments to our bill charging us the full stay. We had booked it directly through the hotel website instead of a travel agent or Expedia. With these types of policies my recommendation is to stay somewhere else. My loss is your gain.... Regarding the hotel rooms and meeting areas. It's an old hotel so definitely temper your expectations regarding any amenities. Also the showers are clearly visible to the bedroom so if you're modest or in mixed company your should be prepared to exit the room for a bit. Getting on the Wi-Fi was incredibly difficult. Between the three travelers we each probably 30 to 40 minutes trying to get online. All of us are very technical people. Understand also that the hotel is nowhere near the city center. You have to take the hotel funicular down to the street and then walk 15-20 minutes to the water. There's also a bus stop nearby but that is also a 10-minute ride. Plan accordingly.... If you feel you have to go see the hotel just make it a stop for a drink.
