Switzerland - 3 days only - what to see

Help! We are doing a last minute trip to Switzerland (leave on Saturday)(my husband has a business trip in Lucerne), and we have 3 1/2 days to explore other areas. We were thinking of taking the train from Zurich on day 1 to the Interlaken area, spending day 2 in that area (suggestions for a day?), then heading down to Zermatt for the day 3 (he definately wants to see the Matterhorn), and then using the last day to head back from Zermatt to Lucerne.

Recommendations on where to stay in the Jungfraujoch area - Interlaken or Lauterbrunner (we also are looking for hotels near the train as we are 2 adults and 2 children, ages 7 and 9, and would need hotels that have family suites), and also hotels in the Zermatt area.($200 or so - 3 or 4 star) Many of the hotels are booked up already. ANy help would be greatly appreciated!

Getting to all of your spots can be done but a lot of your three and a half days are going to be spent on the trains, I would suggeat picking either the Zermat area or the Jungfrau area and spending the majority of your time there. Personally I prefer the Jungfrau area. I would stay in Lauterbrunnen probably at the Hotel Oberland or maybe the Silberhorn. Both are fairly close to the train station and are nice.

Definitely choose the Jungfrau region. Zermat is WAYYYYY too touristy!
