The Art Deco Hotel Montana was opened in 1910 as a "palace" hotel; a time when the change in direction of style had already begun, and Art Deco style influenced the design of the hotel. The star architect, Pia Maria Schmid from Zurich, made the most of the valuable existing building, harmonizing it with the new alterations. Bold and modern or elegant and extravagant - these variations are all interpreted in a contemporary fashion in each Art Deco style bedroom. In-room deluxe amenities include premium 40-inch LCD TVs, Bose sound systems, ultra modern iPhones and MP3 players, docking stations, and connectivity panels for guest laptops.
The Montana day spa is the first day spa in the city of Lucerne, and maintains both the "Dayspa Excellence" and "Beauty & Cosmetics Excellence" quality certificates. After rejuvenating at the spa, guests can savor a plethora of dining and nightlife options ranging from the elegant La Scala restaurant, overlooking Lake Lucerne, to the Louis Bar with nightly live piano, jazz, and funk performances, as well as the Hemingway Rum Lounge. For a more immersive gourmet experience, guests can make their way to the hotel's unique "Kitchen Club", which features an open kitchen concept alongside exclusive cooking courses, and a private chef's dining table.
