As the name might suggest, the hotel has been styled around owners Guido and Marina’s love of music and they fully expect their guests to share this with them – each of the 12 bedrooms are named and themed after a different legendary singer or band. From Elvis Presley to Janis Joplin, all the rooms feature unique décor where a carved wooden bed-head in the shape of a Cadillac with indicators as your bedside lights is a taste of what you can expect from the Hotel California.
If you love live music and an energetic atmosphere, the hotel bar comes alive at the weekends where Champoluc’s residents enjoy the bar and the underground (and fully sound-proofed!) night club. It can be much quieter during the week, but you’ll be kept entertained by the cowboy saloon styling and bar games including the pool table and darts. You can also watch music videos and sport on the big screen TV.
Evening meals (which aren’t included in our prices, but can be booked and paid for locally) are taken on the mezzanine level above the bar, or in one of the numerous local village restaurants. Our resort team are on hand throughout your stay to recommend good local eateries to suit your budget and our on-demand resort minibus service is available 7 evenings a week until midnight to transport you to and from your chosen restaurant. Breakfast (included in your holiday price) is certainly a quieter affair, taken in the lounge downstairs.
Located at the edge of the village, it’s not too far from the slopes or restaurants of Champoluc. An easy 10 minute stroll takes you to our ski deposit (where all your ski equipment, including ski boots, is stored), or you can call the ‘on-demand’ Ski 2 minibus to transport you to the centre of the village.
