Before and after treks or climbs in the French and Swiss Alps, we place most of our travelers in the comfortable 2-star Hôtel de l’Arve located in the center of Chamonix, only a few blocks from the main square and the guide’s office. For clients looking for a more upscale experience, Chamonix also offers several luxury options.
After a challenging trek in the Alps or a climb to the summit of the Mont Blanc, consider spending a few nights in a great luxury hotel! We are pleased to be able to book almost any hotel in the Chamonix valley. Here are our top two picks.
Le Morgane is about a 5-minute walk from the center of town. It boasts rooms with views of either the Mont Blanc or the Aiguilles Rouges and tasteful, modern decor. Professional photographs of the surrounding mountains decorate the common areas and the rooms. This 4-star luxury hotel also has a spa. Its restaurant, Le Bistrot, is run by chef Mickey Bourdillat. This chef who has earned a Michelin star sources “produce from the local area … in the Chamonix Valley, as well as items from neighbouring Switzerland and Aosta in Italy.” Rooms start at approximately $220 per night.
Le Hameau Albert 1er
Le Hameau Albert 1er is considered by many to be Chamonix’s finest property. The hotel has three types of lodging (standard rooms, traditional alpine rooms, and a private châlet) worthy of its 5-star Relais & Châteaux luxury hotel rating. The hotel has all the usual luxury trappings including a spa and a 2-star Michelin restaurant. Rooms with mountain views start at approximately $300 per night, rooms with out mountain views start at approximately $220 per night.
