The moment you step into the expansive lobby, adorned with an original carved wood ceiling, you are greeted by an attentive and dedicated staff who are committed to providing impeccable service. The hotel is surrounded by majestic mountains, making it the perfect destination for avid skiers. Winter is the high season at Badrutt's Palace, attracting celebrities and discerning guests from all over the world. Notable past guests include Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Rita Hayworth, John Lennon, and George Clooney. In fact, the hotel still offers the Hitchcock Suite, allowing guests to experience the luxurious accommodation where the renowned director used to reside during his visits.

Badrutt's Palace Hotel boasts 157 elegantly designed rooms and suites, each offering a comfortable and luxurious retreat. The hotel takes pride in its exceptional amenities, such as complimentary soft drinks and beer in the minibars, and an onsite ice-skating rink. Families can take advantage of the kids' club daycare facility, and children under 12 even receive complimentary laundry service.

One of the highlights of Badrutt's Palace is its opulent pool and spa complex. Accessed through an interior tunnel from the main building, the glass-enclosed indoor pool offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Guests can swim from the interior pool to a heated outdoor pool, enhancing their experience with even more dramatic vistas. For those who appreciate fine wines, the hotel's wine cellar boasts an impressive collection of over 30,000 bottles, including rare vintages like a Lafite Rothschild from 1900.

Indulge in the lavish daily breakfast buffet, served in Le Restaurant overlooking the picturesque lake. Accompanied by classical music, the buffet offers an array of freshly baked pastries and breads, yogurts, cheeses, fruits, quiches, cured meats, and fish. Omelets can be prepared to order, and attentive waiters in white jackets ensure your plates are delivered directly to your table.

For a uniquely gastronomic experience, plan your stay during the annual St. Moritz Gourmet Festival, hosted at Badrutt's Palace every January. Renowned chefs from Europe and around the world come together to offer special dinners and other culinary delights. The hotel itself boasts an impressive lineup of restaurants and three bars, ensuring that guests have an unforgettable dining experience.

It is important to note that Badrutt's Palace operates in two seasons: the winter ski season, which runs from December through late March, and the summer season, which lasts from late June until early September. The hotel is closed during the spring and fall.

Each room is tastefully furnished with plush upholstered headboards, classic armchairs, and dark woods. Ranging in size from 270 to 485 square feet, the rooms offer various views, with the best ones overlooking the adjacent lake and the stunning mountains beyond. The suites at Badrutt's Palace provide the ultimate luxury experience, starting with a junior suite option and ranging up to the exquisite Hans Badrutt Suite, which encompasses a marble entrance hall and a wood-paneled library within its spacious 1,885-square-foot space. As a special touch, the beds are adorned with old-fashioned hot water bottles, featuring covers that playfully suggest, "If nobody keeps you warm tonight, let it be me." The elegant marble bathrooms feature black granite countertops, rain showers, and plush terrycloth robes.

Badrutt's Palace Hotel offers an exceptional dining experience with a variety of restaurants to choose from. IGNIV, the hotel's signature dining spot designed by chef Andreas Caminada, presents a multi-course set menu featuring inventive small plates meant for sharing. Chesa Veglia, located in a former farmhouse dating back to 1658 across the street from the main hotel, houses three distinct restaurants: Patrizier Stuben, known for Swiss classics; Pizzeria Heuboden, offering pizza and pasta; and Grill Chadafö, which serves French-style cuisine. La Coupole-Matsuhisa, located in what was once Europe's first indoor tennis court, offers a Japanese-Peruvian menu created by renowned chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa. A traditional afternoon tea is served in Le Grand Hall, the centrally located lobby lounge and dining space lovingly referred to as "the living room of St. Moritz." Additionally, King's Social House, housed in the space that formerly held Switzerland's oldest nightclub, offers modern interpretations of classic bistro fare along with live entertainment.

Badrutt's Palace Hotel provides an array of amenities to ensure a truly luxurious stay. From 24-hour room service and babysitting services to a well-equipped fitness center and a tennis court, guests have access to everything they need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The hotel also offers both indoor and outdoor pools, allowing guests to take a refreshing swim while enjoying the picturesque surroundings. For those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, the hotel's spa offers a range of treatments and therapies. Pet owners need not worry, as Badrutt's Palace is a pet-friendly establishment.

To enhance guests' convenience, the hotel provides complimentary transfers to and from the railway station, as well as transportation to various destinations around town in their iconic Rolls-Royce.

In conclusion, Badrutt's Palace Hotel epitomizes classic elegance in the stunning setting of St. Moritz. With its rich history, luxurious accommodations, exceptional amenities, and diverse dining options, this iconic hotel offers an unforgettable experience for discerning travelers seeking a truly indulgent escape in the heart of the Swiss Alps.
