Our stay was really good and are defenitly coming back next year. The staff is all really friendly and the service and room are really good Housekeeping is perfect, they always check when we are leaving and if they can clean the room or that they should wait. With the turn down service they check the entire room again. We had dinner in Jazz Café this was good, but we personally didn't like the menu for another day the second day we really enjoyed the dinner in Funky Claude's bar and recomend going here. As a ALL Gold member we got upgraded to the Junior Suite, this was really nice (from the deluxe lake view room)

To keep it short: Our stay was just wonderful. We celebrated our wedding with my wife 5 years ago at the Palace and returned now for a short stay and enjoyed it very much. Location top, breakfast wonderful, service very kind and professional, the spa very relaxing. We had also dinner (try out the escargot and the fois gras). We will definitely be back. Nothing negativ to mention.

From the minute you check in and walk down the hallway, with its exquisite carpet and handsome doorplates, the lovely muted colors of the wainscoting and the hand-carved wooden doors, you know you're in a special place. Just cannot say enough about the service, the quality of the furnishings, the beds, the bathrooms, and then there are the VIEWS. Being right on the lake, overlooking the Miles Davis hall where the Jazz Fest is held -- with a gorgeous park across the street -- it's just magical. We loved every minute we spent there.

Get a lake-view room and enjoy paradise from your balcony. We were lucky with sunny weather, but even on the day it rained it was sublime watching the storm roll through from the west and over the mountains and lake. The pool area is lovely with very good food and a great staff. Overall, I found the hotel staff to be friendly and attentive, especially when I had major train delays and needed some help. One issue: my bathroom (Room 303) needs a lot of attention, as the fixtures are falling off. Easy enough fixes, so please don't let the housekeeping staff precariously place a piece of metal over the tissue box when everyone knows it will fall off again!

Our stay in the Freddie Mercury suite was exceptional. Valet parking on arrival was seamless and our greeting at reception as All Accor members was very professional. The spa, indoor and outdoor pools and sun loungers overlooking the lake are the ultimate relaxation. We had a facial and a massage at the spa and both treatments were great with knowledgable staff. We had breakfast and dinner at La Terrasse du Petit Palais, stunning views and excellent food. The hotel felt very COVID safe. Our suite was well air conditioned and enough rooms for us and our pre teen (and his PlayStation!). The roof terrace is to die for with its views of the lake. Our only points of improvement would be a faster (or any) response to emails to front desk. Responses were slow both before and during our stay for any queries or requests (Concierge were super helpful its worth noting). The spa staff were wonderful apart from the lady who momentarily manned the desk who was wearing cream trousers and a white shirt who barked “speak French” when I enquired about the location of the toilets. We hope to return very soon. Thanks for such a great stay.
