Forget all previous reviews on the Monte Rosa - it is in process of a major refurbishment. We stayed there for a weeks skiing in Jan 09 and had one of their superior rooms on the 6th floor. It was without doubt one of the nicest hotel rooms I have stayed in - and I have stayed in a few! All brand new and to the highest standard, pine vaulted ceiling, walnut floorboards, enormous bed, two balconies large bathroom with jacuzzi bath and separate shower etc etc.
The top 3 floors were refurbished in 2008 and the remaining rooms are scheduled for 2009. The public rooms will remain as is - elegant and traditional.
The staff are friendly and super-attentive. The food is good.
Perhaps the only word of caution is that the clientele appears to be mainly middle aged or elderly - some of whom come year after year. The atmosphere in the dining room is rather formal, and I felt a bit underdressed in casual clothes and an open neck shirt. So it might not be the best choice for young ravers!
Apart from that, this hotel is hard to fault.
