THE BEST NEW AND NEWLY RENOVATED HOTELS

Refuge Spirit
 
Built in 1880 to house the mountaineers who climbed the summits of Chamonix, this rustic, high-mountain refuge was recently modernized by Maisons et Hotels Sibuet. Now, the hotel has been rechristened Terminal Neige, and “glamping” doesn’t even begin to cover it. Rooms have wood fireplaces, feather soft beds, and leather travel trunks that serve as bedside tables. And Mont Blanc, Europe’s tallest mountain, is basically next-door. But it’s not just overnight climbers who are making the ascent up the mountainside - in a red trolley, no less - to the lobby’s terrace, 6,725 feet above sea level. Day hikers, too, can be spotted sipping apertifs on the terrace and noshing on regional specialties in cast-iron cocottes at the Montenvers Restaurant. Time it right, and you’ll witness the dazzling light show that is the sun setting against the Mer de Glace, a 7.5 kilometer “sea of ice”, just below the hotel.
