We spent two nights at this hotel. Check-in service was outstanding, including valet service for car (as parking is difficult). Nice ski storage room also. Bedroom was charming - typical modern Swiss with light woodwork everywhere, and all very functional. Morning breakfast buffet nicely done, also, and a nice lounge/bar to watch the world go by at the end of the afternoon.

This hotel also offers an included ski lift pass at a substantial discount, if you stay two nights.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the square are noisier.

We had just got off the Glacier Express Train in St Moritz. We did not have a confirmed reservation due to poor-internet service thru the Swiss Alps train adventure. We walked into the lobby and were greeted at the front desk. Traveling with a family they offered us 2 rooms at a price that was over our budget.We then gave them our budget and were asked to wait for a moment for the GM Mark who came out from the back office. He looked over his computer and offered us a JR Suite that would handle our needs at a price just over our budget with breakfast included. Wonderful stay that night with the Crystal Hotel .

Room Tip: Internet Service at No extra charge .

2 adults stayed for 3 nights in mid Jan.
Modern hotel in the very centre of St Moritz - 2 min walk to ski tube / ski rental shop (next to each other), next to restaurants, shops, cafes/bakery. At the same time, our room was very quiet and unaffected by any street noise. We were told that early to mid Jan is a quiet season and busy ski season starts at the end of Jan through Feb....because of that the bars and restaurants were half full and it was very easy to get a sitting without booking. The same goes for ski slopes – not many people, no need to line up for lifts and after 3pm I had few runs all to myself :)
It also appears that St Moritz ski scene is somewhat more conservative than Zermatt and majority resorts in Austria. Apre ski in St Moritz is almost nonexistent apart of Hauser’s Hotel bar where young people gather...Very different to Zermatt where old and young all mix together after skiing ....
Crystal's hotel Piano bar offers a redeeming feature for lack of 'apre ski'. Very elegant, classy with life music played throughout the evening. Note smoking is allowed in all bars we saw/visited in St Moritz. Life music is played very softly so noone shouts (very different to a typical Australian bar).
Hotel's room was very spacious, modern, and clean with comfortable beds and large bathroom. Furniture look new and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent with large selection of meats, cheeses (including real buffalo mozzarella), eggs, breads, lots of baked cakes, pastries, fruits, and some hot stuff like sausages, scrambled eggs etc.
Front desk staff was very helpful and genuinely nice. We enjoyed few dinners at the following places nearby (i) Luca's Churrascaria for a great steak (easy going atmosphere) (ii) La Stalla for good pasta, soups, stroganoff (easy going) and (iii) Badrutt's Palace (upmarket hotel) for views of the lake and high tea (costly at CHF 64 per person with champaing, but 100% worth it). We also went to the lasrgest Wisky bar on the planet (??) at Waldhaus Am See Hotel - excellent selection of wisky and very knowledgeable sommelier ...but found the atmosphere unfriendly and gloomy...
I highly recommend Crystal Hotel.

Perfect location, just a few minutes walk up to catch the ski train to Corviglia. Staff were very friendly and helpful, excellent ski room and nice atmosphere in the bar. Good room with lovely bathroom but the beds were incredibly hard!! Breakfast offered a good range of choice too. Restaurant food was good but a little dated in style and presentation. For St Moritz, this hotel is good value for money and we would stay here again.

We were very happy indeed with this hotel. They gave us an upgrade to a junior suite at no extra cost. The staff are extremely helpful, attentive and helpful. The hotel is very well run. We had very good food. The hotel is centrally located, which is important in St Moritz. It is an excellent place to stay.

Stayed for one night while on a tour. Good location in the upper town near tons of VERY expensive, upscale stores and cafes/restaurants. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms are perfectly decorated--I call it Heidi Style- with light woodtones and matching fabrics. Internet was free I believe. Breakfast good--nice dinner. I'd definately return.

We had an excellent dining experience in the Grissini - a very pleasant evening. The nice "ambiente with great Hodler and Segantini paintings are worth a visit in itself ! The food served was very good - a fine "Swiss Prime beef steak tartare, an excellent filet of wild gilt head fish and a saddle of lamb. The wine list offers a very good selection! Finally the staff was very attentive and it was nice that the director of the hotel and the headwaiter came to greet all the guests.
