Hotel Steffani
Location
St. Moritz, Switzerland

Located in the heart of St.Moritz, The Steffani and has been owned and run by the same family for four generations. To this day, you're greeted at the door by the world-famous Steffani rabbit. In 1928 the Steffani rabbit debuted as the official mascot for the Olympic Winter Games, which were held in St.Moritz, and because so many athletes and officials stayed here, the rabbit became the ongoing symbol of the hotel. The property's sense of Alpine luxury features local materials, traditional Swiss furnishing and guest rooms flooded with natural light and views over the Engadin mountains, the town, the lake or the quiet hotel garden. Rooms are fitted with a double bed, a sitting area, a desk and en suite bathroom with bathtub and shower. All rooms are equipped with free water, tea and coffee makers, safe, flat screen TV, satellite/cable TV, telephone, bathrobe and slippers, hairdryer and free Wi-Fi. The hotel’s modern spa offers a heated indoor pool, sauna, steam room, relaxation area and a massage room. The on-site restaurant, Le Lapin Bleu, is a true neighborhood staple that opened in 1869 and is the first and oldest restaurant in St.Moritz.

Hotel Bella Vista Zermatt
Location
Zermatt, Switzerland

Bella Vista is a small, family-run hotel with magnificent views toward the Matterhorn. The property exudes traditional Swiss style, a five-story stack of balconies rimmed by bright flower boxes. With just 21 rooms, the hotel offers a warm ambiance, where every nook and cranny is filled with thoughtful detail. Outside, you’ll hear Zermatt’s clippety-clop of horse-drawn carriages and the quiet whirring of electric cars. Embellishments in the individually decorated rooms range from traditional painted furniture to chalet-style pine. Rooms have plank wood floors and plush down comforters, and en suite bathrooms. From your bedroom’s private balcony, watch sunset or moonrise over the mountains. Plus, there’s a communal terrace for awe-inspired mountain gazing, plus an inviting indoor lounge with ample couch space, a fireplace and library. Spend a quiet moment in the spa with its sauna, infrared sauna, steam room and a relaxation room with a view of the Matterhorn. In the morning, enjoy homemade bread and jams, freshly prepared eggs and juices, cold meat and sausages, and yogurt and cheese made by Bella Vista’s neighbors. You can also enjoy traditional Swiss specialties like peppermint and lemon balm tea from the garden.

3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat
Location
Zermatt, Switzerland

Sleep among the peaks at over 10,000 feet in elevation, where cloud wisps glide past your window and the Milky Way fills the sky. Normally, this is an altitude where you find researchers and mountain climbers toughing it out in tents. But at the Kulmhotel Gornergrat, you’ll be among the exclusive few who check in at altitude in utmost comfort, firmly grounded among black rock peaks, the power of a massive glacier and an immense blue sky. Perched high on the mountain overnight, the hotel becomes your personal observation station. Rooms on the west side have a sensational panoramic view of the Matterhorn. Rooms on the south side provide an unobstructed view of the Monte Rosa Massif and its huge glaciers. Enhancing the views outside your window, each modern, minimalist room is accented with Swiss pine, a topo map and a piece of rock from the peak of the mountain after which the room is named. Two twin bed beds can be converted to a king, and the en suite bathroom has a shower. Wi-Fi is available throughout the property. The sun terrace lets you take in 29 individual 13,000-foot peaks on display, with delicious food and drink on the table. And once it becomes cool outside, move into the inviting atmosphere of the indoor restaurant where impressive mountains are omnipresent through the panoramic windows.
Hotel Eiger
Location
Murren, Switzerland

Perched on a mountainside in an enchanting Swiss mountain hamlet that’s free of cars, the Hotel Eiger has been continuously owned and managed by the Staehli family since it was built in 1886. While rooms have obviously been upgraded since then, the alpine inn’s unsurpassed views over the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau haven’t changed a bit. Newly renovated bedrooms feature local wood furniture and cozy duvets, with bright color accents and historic photographs of the iconic trams and trains that wind through the mountains. Sink into an armchair or step onto your private balcony to absorb the view over glaciers and peaks. Each room has two twin beds that can be converted to a king, a writing desk, and an en suite bathroom with tub or shower. Amenities also include free Wi-Fi, TV and radio. The hotel's second-floor spa has a rain shower and Jacuzzi with views over the mountains, plus a ground-level swimming pool and sauna where you become part of the panorama as you swim or steam. Wake up to a breakfast of fresh croissants, Swiss muesli, mountain cheese, bacon and eggs, salmon and yogurt for a perfect start to your day in the Alps.
Hotel Masson
Location
Montreaux, Switzerland
 
Steeped in authentic Swiss ambiance, this family-owned-and-operated hotel is the Montreaux-Vevey region’s most historic accommodation. Located minutes from Chateau Chillion and built by the winemaker Jean-Francois Masson, it was constructed as a typical vintner’s house (and still includes the stunning original wine cave). Once converted, it became Montreux’s first hotel—a pension that served a changing clientele, including French historian Jules Michelet, Russian aristocrats and long-term English and the German guests. The 1875 wrought-iron balcony, laced with wisteria, entices you feel the nostalgia of Elise Masson, the hotel's first owner. Constructed at the start of the Belle Epoque, the property survived two world wars and has persisted as a shining example of regional architectural heritage.

As a witness to almost 200 years of history, Hotel Masson was honored by the International Council on Monuments and Sites for its outstanding conservation and hospitality. Rooms offer a delightful retreat in time, along with all the comforts and contemporary upgrades one expects of a modern boutique hotel. Individually decorated double rooms have views over Lake Geneva, with balconies and decor that sustain an evocative sense of the past with substantial wooden furniture, parquet floors, rich upholstery and an airy sense of bringing the outdoors in. Free WiFi is included, and en suite bathrooms include deep soaking tubs. The hotel is surrounded by a peaceful garden filled with gnarled old trees, roses and lavender that wafts through the rooms, plus a breathtaking view over the lake and the Swiss Alps. A small wellness area includes a Jacuzzi and sauna. Daily breakfast in the cozy dining area features homemade breads and jams sourced from the fruits of the hotel’s own garden.
