Grimentz, Leukerbad or Crans-Montana?

My son (15 yrs. old) and I are planning a 5 nights stay in August and we have narrowed down our search to one of these three resorts but we cannot decide which. In previous years we stayed in Wengen and in Saas Fe (personally i prefer Wengen to Saas Fe). Walking aside, we are not interested in the night life, but like to look at shops and have a choice of cafes.

Could you please advise what are the advantages/disadvantages of our three choices.

- Leukerbad doesn't have a huge amount in the way of shops, but the baths are fantastic.

- Grimentz has neither shops (apart from basics of course) nor baths, but is architecturally more interesting (lots of typical old buildings). By far the smallest and quietest of your three choices.

- Crans-Montana is a different animal altogether... more of a town than the other two, more upmarket, a lot more shops but much less natural - definitely a resort rather than a village, more like Saas-Fee than Wengen.

Personally of the three I would go for Leukerbad - it has the baths, some nice cable-car rides, some nice walking.

Many thanks for your suggestions - we've ruled out Crans-Montana now and will probably divide our time between the other two.
