I would highly recommend the St. Moritz because it has a great view, is only a few minutes’ walk away from the main shopping area, the rooms are large and comfortable, the staff informative and friendly, and there’s even an breakfast buffet included each morning.
I was lucky enough to get a room overlooking the lake and the aptly named Remarkables Mountains. Each of the lake-view rooms has a small balcony, allowing the sweet-smelling air to gently ease through the window. I could see the passing H.M.S. Earnslaw, jet boaters, and people parasailing. It was very relaxing to simply watch out the window.
The walk back and forth to the main area of Queenstown was about 5 minutes (not one minute, as mentioned on their website). This is a quick walk to town when going downhill, though it is a rather steep climb when returning to the hotel. My father and brother, with whom I traveled, needed to take a short break on the way up, but it was still close enough for us. If you’re going by, you would be in town in one minute.
Our room was the size of a small apartment with a separate bedroom and kitchenette. The marble-clad kitchenette had a microwave and even a clothes washer/dryer (confusingly combined into one unit), which I was happy to see. My father inadvertently fell asleep on the plushy overstuffed chair on several occasions, and I was comfortable sleeping on a rollaway bed perched right near the balcony.
In the room, there is a tour book displaying all of the available tours that the concierge can book. All I had to do was tell the concierge which tour I wanted, and he booked it for me. When I was unsure of what the tour included, he was quickly able to give me the information I requested. Later, instructions were placed under my door with a receipt. The tour was conveniently billed to the room for the listed price.
Even if you don’t get a room with a view, the dining area also has the same stunning view that I had in my room. This is where you’ll find the daily tasty breakfast buffet. The staff here was very pleasant and the food was always fresh.
Summarily, this hotel is definitely in a wonderful location and will be plenty of room for your money, though it is pretty pricey. You definitely get what you pay for.
