Mandarin Oriental will take over management of the fabled Hotel Palace Luzern. First opened in 1906 and positioned in the heart of the city on the shores of Lake Lucerne, the property is currently undergoing an extensive renovation. It will reopen as Mandarin Oriental Palace, Luzern at the end of 2020.
The upgrade will include the restyling of all guestrooms and suites, the redesign of the public areas, restaurants and bars as well as the landscaping of the outdoor grounds.
Following the completion of the renovation, Mandarin Oriental Palace, Luzern will consist of 146 rooms and suites offering excellent views of the lake and mountains. There will be a restaurant and a bar together with a variety of social and meeting facilities and a spa and fitness room.
“We look forward to opening a new hotel in Switzerland, which will complement our growing portfolio in Europe, including our other Swiss hotel in Geneva. Lake Lucerne has long been a popular destination for luxury travellers and it will now be home to one of Switzerland’s most exclusive properties, providing guests with Mandarin Oriental’s exemplary service for which the brand is renowned,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
