  1. Badrutt’s Palace Hotel St. Moritz ($1,634+) = The Top Choice for A-List’ers in the Alps.  This is one of Switzerland’s most famous hotels, having hosted Prince Charles & Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn, Charlie Chaplin, & Marlene Dietrich.  Alfred Hitchcock also honeymooned here, then returned 34 more times through the years…which shows how much he LOVED it!  They still European royalty, & almost every room has a view of mountains or lake.  Stunning.
  2. Grand Hotel des Bain Kempinski ($1,034+) = Storied Hotel with a Casino that Draws Late Night Stars.  “Where Swiss heritage meets modern luxury.”  Their Alpine Spa here is INCREDIBLE (you might see Paris Hilton or Claudia Schiffer pool-side), with amazing mountain views.  And they’re steps from the Cable Car that takes you up the mountain: so this is a top spot for stars looking to ski in the winter.  But it’s the casino that draws the late-night revelers & younger crowd, looking to gamble & dance the night away….
  3. Kulm Hotel St. Moritz ($1,287+) = Historic Hotel with a Storied Past & Uber-Exclusive “Dracula Club.”  Founded by Dracula Gunter Sachs, the “Dracula Club” inside the Kulm Hotel is one of the main draws for celebrities & moguls: & it’s ultra-secretive/”No Cameras” rule is also a huge plus for those seeking privacy from paparazzi.  Staying here might grant you access to star-sightings like Robert Deniro, Elizabeth Hurley, or supermodels like Kate Moss.

“What a beautiful hotel from outside & inside both. It’s top-notch with excellent service. The German gentleman who prepared our drinks was really good ~ we loved the cocktails. It’s worth the money. Lounge area has a fireplace. Very cozy & comfortable. We would definitely stay here the next time. Thank you!!”
