Hotel des Trois Couronnes, Vevey


Swiss lake Geneva and the city of Vevey’s charming hotel: US author Henry James wrote Daisy Miller there during his 1878 stay.

In case you wonder what sort of room reservation could possibly puzzle the receptionist at the Trois Coronnes: in October 1859 Tsar Nicholas I took all 60 rooms on all four floors for himself and his entourage and spent the winter at Vevey. Today you have 71 rooms and suites at your service; enough space to bring some of your closest friends.

When the Hotel des Trois Couronnes in Vevey was built, there were few hotels on the shores of Lake Geneva that could measure up to it as far as size and interiors were concerned. At best, the Hotel des Bergues in Geneva, inaugurated in 1834, or the Hotel Byron in Villeneuve near Castle Chillon, opened in 1841 were comparable to this new hotel, inaugurated by the well-established hotel owner Gabriel Monnet on 3 May 1842.
Building waterfront hotels to substitute for hotels in the city’s heart was all the rage during this period: several hotels in Geneva had done it (for instance, the Couronne in 1836 and the Ecu de Geneve in 1841), as well as in Luzern (the Schwanen in 1835).
