We arrived in St. Moritz by train from Zurich. The hotel advertises that they will pick you up at the train station so when we arrived I was looking for a phone to call the hotel. I found the Monopol van and driver who apparently meets trains every day to pick up hotel guests. He put our luggage in the van and off we went up the hill to the hotel. That's a nice service for someone who has never been to St. Moritz before.
We were greeted by a young man who told us our room number and gave the key to the bellman (he was the van driver) who took us and our luggage to room 506. See my photos of the room. We found the staff friendly and helpful and the bar man informative as to the local economy and the effect the strong Swiss Franc was having on their tourist business.
The morning breakfast (included) was offered on the lower level. The selection of items was sufficient to nourish one for the start of the day. We didn't use the spa but did tour the area and the outside deck on the top floor. On a sunny, warm day, it would be a pleasant place to sit and relax ovelooking the lake. The exercise area was in one small room next to the Spa (we didn't use it either). Although others have commented about the church bell tower across the street, we noticed the bells didn't ring after 8PM or before 8AM, so we weren't bothered by their ringing and slept well. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel but didn't find St. Moritz very interesting or beautiful as we later found Zermatt to be. We would return to the Monopol were we to travel to St. Moritz again.
