The Bellevue au Lac is one of the most traditional hotels in Lugano. Built in 1883 in Florentine style, the main building was first used as an art museum, as can still be seen today at the atrium with the imposing Carrara marble staircase. It has been operated as a first class hotel since 1898 , continuously run by private owners.
In 1958, the Charles Bea Foery-Spichtig family acquired the Bellevue hotel.
In 1974, the hotel's three-story building was raised by two more floors. At the same time, the first solar power plant in Ticino was installed on the flat roof of the hotel as an energy source for Hotel Bellevue au Lac.
Charles and Bea Foery-Spichting retire after 27 years and hand over the hotel to their eldest son, Marco Foery.
Since 2000, Charles J.P. Helbling, Charles Foery's grandson, has been running the hotel. Since then, the hotel's infrastructure has been continuously adapted to today's needs: all rooms have been refurbished into modern luxury and executive rooms, spacious junior suites and suites. The hotel is also at the cutting edge of technology: all rooms have free and ultra fast Internet connection, a modern television system with LED flat screens with digital and HD reception with 135 television and 85 radio station programs from around the world. In addition, all rooms are equipped with modern air conditioning systems , which can be individually regulated in every room.
