The room in the Renaissance in Lucerne is not as large as that in other hotels that we have stayed in. It is still a good size and has a king size bed and separate bathroom. We are here for two nights.
The breakfasts have been excellent. We both went back for second courses.

We had enjoyed Lindau, but it was time to move on to the more beautiful parts of Switzerland.

... the 10 cents into the price... Fed, beat up but not beaten, we retreated to our hotel for rest and to make plans for next day’s adventures.
After a pretty aggressive day (by our standards, but apparently not by the standards of a chain smoking Swiss innkeeper) we hoped to take it a little easier the following day and take a hike from Gimmewald to Schilthorn, as I recalled this was a 3hr hike with spectacular mountain views… We would later discover ...
... from the Zurich Airport. We wanted something fairly close as we are flying out tomorrow morning.
Our B&B our by the airport turned out to be a small suite in a condo complex. It was very comfortable - there was an Italian restaurant right beneath the condo where we had a great dinner with lots and lots of great wine.
Went to bed early - tomorrow is our 9 hour flight back to US. Had a great sleep - beds very comfortable - have truly enjoyed Switzerland.
