Hotel Carlton, St. Moritz
Tel: 41 81 836 70 00
Concierge.com's insider take:
This five-star hotel does not have the same high profile as its rivals, but it could be considered the most luxurious. Originally built in 1913, this historic resort has re-emerged, after an extensive refurbishment, as St. Moritz's first true boutique hotel. Swiss interior designer Carlo Rampazzi has transformed the rooms into 60 suites (all with lake views) in a blaze of red, green, and orange, with giant leather headboards, antiques, and reproductions of the original 1913 carpets. Facilities include a spa with six treatment rooms; as well as two restaurants (the Romanoff and the new Tschine which serves Asian fusion dishes).
Open mid-December through early-April and mid-June through September.
