This is very grand hotel adjacent to the lake and within easy walking distance of Lucerne's main tourist attractions.
We had a city view room which was well furnished but was in chronic need of air conditioning. We stayed during a period of unsettled weather where the outside temp was around 20C but the room remained stubbornly hot. It does have some kind of forced air induction system but isn't aircon. Now with a lakeside view you can probably open windows and let some air in but for city side rooms the noise of traffic makes this impractical.
All the staff we dealt with were excellent and the hotel certainly has some good public rooms. However you have to pay an extra CHF25 to use the gym across the road and breakfast is charged at CHF35. We chose to get our breakfast outside in the various cafes for a lot less.
