More about the front desk staff; Chiara was committed to us having the very best experience in St. Moritz. Each day she had a suggested itinerary, based on the weather for us to explore the surrounding mountains. She also made great dinner suggestions (check out my reviews for Dal Mulin and Mulo’s). Most of the restaurants in town are closed on Sundays, so don’t save your favorite for then. There is a wonderful breakfast buffet included with your stay, in the cozy Mono restaurant.
We did not take advantage of the spa facilities, but we did discover the beautiful rooftop patio adjacent to the spa. Should we have had a day of bad weather, I’m sure we would have enjoyed the services. Guests have access to the gym and the indoor hot tub (with a fabulous view). Another wonderful bonus in St. Moritz is that you receive free passes to all of the public transportation when you stay 2 nights, or more in a hotel. This allows free entrance to all of the gondolas, funiculars and in-town buses.
We were there at the end of the summer season and the cross-ventilation was all we needed, there is no air conditioning. One caveat; the hotel is directly across the street from a bell tower, which chimes every 15 minutes. It was a relief to learn that it is silent from 10 pm until 8 am. As with any resort, there will be late-night revelers returning at all hours of the late night, just bring earplugs.
