<<"Thank you so much, Slowpoke, for all your effort...I am thinking we will stay in Weggis since that has always been my dream, but considering fog...to be above it would definitely have its pluses">>
We have stayed 2 or 3 times at Hotel Central am See in Wengen. We chose it because of location and reputation. The rooms are very nice and have wonderful views.
I'm sure that there are plenty of other nice hotels there, too.
The kitchen was either good or excellent on various times. The "good" was on a very busy Friday or Saturday night in September, and the service slowed down. I vaguely recall that there is also a close by restaurant with a good reputation, but we were happy at the Central, as were our guests (a retired Swiss Ambassador and his wife) one evening.
For me, It makes good sense for you to stay in Weggis. It simplifies planning on a complicated trip. Especially if your parents are coming along. Are they Swiss? You mentioned being in choir in Luzern.....
If things open up at the Bergsonne, I'll let you know, but I'm sure that you will have a pleasant stay in Weggis. And, it is a lot simpler from a logistics perspective. On the other hand, the bergsonne experience is a lot better, but much harder achieve. We have been there 20 or more times.....
In Weggis, the nearest transport stop to the Central is the Schiffstation. There is a bus stop there, also. It is about a 300 meter walk, on a fairly level lakeside road.. I'm sure that they would pick you up, too.
