The roots of the global luxury hotel business are in Switzerland
In 2012 and 2013, no fewer than 5 Swiss Deluxe Hotels celebrate their 100th anniversary: Suvretta House, St. Moritz, Bellevue Palace Bern, Grand Hotel Bellevue Gstaad, Gstaad Palace and the Hotel
Carlton, St. Moritz. The history of Swiss luxury hotels is the story of the visionary ideas and passion of the famous pioneers in tourism and the hotel industry. For some 175 years now, innovation, top quality and
uncompromising service have been the cornerstones for the highest standards in hospitality. Numerous Swiss hotel owners were also among the first to introduce the latest technical innovations.
The Hotel des Bergues in Geneva, which opened in 1834, was probably the first hotel in Switzerland to provide its guests with running water upstairs; in 1844, the same hotel installed the first gas lights to
be found in a Swiss hotel and, three years later, flush toilets. As early as 1844, the Grand Hotel les Trois Rois in Basel was able to offer running water on all floors of the building. The first lift was
installed in the Grand Hotel in Vevey in 1867. In 1874, the Hotel Beau-Rivage in Geneva was the proud owner of a hydraulic lift for visitors. The era of electric light began in July 1879 at the Kulm Hotel
in St. Moritz with the “Yablochkov arc lamp”, the first permanently installed electric light in Switzerland.
Behind the initial development of all of the early tourist destinations were innovative pioneers to whom these places owe a great deal of their renown.0Need at least 3 ratings
