Hotels in Switzerland

Outside, an ancient square is anchored by a splashing fountain and medieval church bells toll. Inside, the hotel’s 23 funky rooms—some in herbal greens, others in bright reds and oranges—are outfitted with low-slung platform beds and plenty of space to hang your clothes and coats.

The hotel offers a day pass for access to its spa. The five steam rooms vary according to the herbs and oils used, but the real draw is the Finnish sauna—a wooden hut outside in the snow, with a deep plunge pool alongside it.

Castle-like property with 191 rooms and a family-friendly vibe, set among private chalets just outside St. Moritz proper. 

Room to Book: Ask for south facing rooms for views of the lake.

Nothing captures the town’s charm like the Romantik Hotel Schweizerhof, with its pitched roofs and 19th-century wood-paneled façade. The suites blend old-world details (fireplaces; carved pine headboards) with modern amenities (flat-screen TV’s; heated tile floors in the bathrooms).

An institution for high rollers since 1915, with a happening British colonial–style bar. 

Room to Book: Ask for a junior room overlooking Lake Geneva.
