Hotel des Alpes is not bad,nice rooms, river views, although their kitchen is mediocre. Plenty of other places to eat.
You picked the most expensive time of year...go in March or April...room costs vary with season at many hotels. ;-)
If you stay at the Palace, you will never forget the experience. Of course, if you also eat there and have some wine, you will never forget the bill. ;-)
Often, their restaurant(s) are ranked number 1 in Luzern. I only ate there once, and the cuisine was exquisite. Someone else was paying.
