Andrew Harper drooled over the fashionable Leopard Lounge, naming it the Hotel Bar of the Year. Leading Small Hotels of the World decided this pad is the Best Hotel in Europe (2005). Not too shabby for a lakeside pied a terre that dates from 1872. In fact, most of the world's remaining royalty (and folks that just feel like kings and queens) concur that the hotel's 39 rooms and suites provide the best accommodations in Switzerland's largest city, and perhaps the world over. Balconies provide heart-stopping views over Lake Geneva, the Jet d'Eau and the towering peaks of Mont Blanc. (And the Presidential Suite, rest assured, has bullet proof windows, among other amenities.) From May 10 through the end of the year, the Hotel d'Angleterre is offering a Suite Dreams package, for a luxurious weekend of indulgence. The package includes Junior suite lake view accommodations, buffet breakfast daily, afternoon tea, Aroma therapy set, and in room champagne upon arrival. Starting at CHF 1,590 for two people.
