After reading the reviews here, I booked this hotel on Orbitz. We stayed for 3 nights in early February 2010 (sorry for the delay). After taking several trains from Zurich, we were met at the St Moritz station by a hotel driver in a BMW SUV...very handy for our snowboard equipment brought from Chicago. I had mentioned to Orbitz that this was our wedding anniversary celebration, and was quite pleased to find that the hotel had done many special touches to acknowledge this.
Our room was upgraded to a suite, rose petals on the bed, sweets, wine, and a tapas plate were waiting for us.
The gondola is a short walk from the hotel grounds and the runs are nice and steep, if that's what you want.
The town is also a easy walk and is filled with world-class shopping and dining. We ate in a simple Swiss restaurant the first night, just walked in.
The pro shop at the hotel managed all of the snowshoes and boards we had brought along, the staff was engaging and professional, nothing was a bother (I even forgot a pair of my favorite LL Bean boots under a bench there, they shipped them back to The States for me, no charge).
The breakfast buffet is extensive and, unlike another reviewer observed, there is no attitude from the staff about wearing Juicy sweats. I actually took a photo of my wife wearing hers in the breakfast room (we got a kick out of that)!
We also dined in the Restaurant Cà d'Oro...this was truly amazing...one of the finest dining experiences of our lives. The St Moritz Gourmet Festival was going on that week, and the night we asked for a table in The Cà d'Oro a chef from Vienna was in the house...I honestly lost count of the courses.
The pool is and spa is superb, the fitness room is very well equipped.
This was an incredible experience, the staff was flawless...we had an absolutely unforgettable time at the Kempinsky St Moritz.
