Luxury hotels abound in the village of Lech - but the accommodation at the four-star level is not always aimed at the rarified air of the upper classes.
There are plenty of hotels which class themselves as family-run operations and which welcome their guests back year after year.
Of course, for those looking to pamper themselves, Lech can also offer hotels with the most luxurious of facilities...

Guests staying in Lech will arrive from the bottom of the map shown above - the route from the main Arlberg Pass road and over the Flexen Pass through Zürs is the only road open in the winter months.
Much of the accommodation is along this main road through the resort, with an especial concentration around the village centre and slightly above it on the right. (These areas are known as Dorf and Anger.)
Another cluster of hotels and guesthouses can be found within the village on the other side of the stream and along the initial stages of the side road towards the hamlet of Zug. (These areas are known as Tannberg and Omesberg.)
There is also quite a healthy selection of accommodation in Oberlech, which is up on the wide and gentle ski slopes immediately above the village but also accessible by car. This means that it is one of the few areas which can truly claim ski-in ski-out accommodation in Austria.
A completely different option for accommodation is Zug - a tiny village for a real 'get-away-from-it-all' feeling only three kilometers from Lech and with direct access to and from the ski slopes.

The Goldener Berg is one of the original hotels in the resort - dating back from the time when it was converted into accommodation in the 1920s by former officers of the Austrian army. It is located in Oberlech on the ski slopes and now operates as a ski-in ski-out boutique hotel with rooms and suites.
Those looking for boutique-style chalet accommodation might prefer one of Lech's range of luxury ski chalet properties in the quieter Omesberg part of the village, about 500m from the ski lifts.
