I cannot say enough good things about The Coeur des Alpes. We found this place through trip advisor and didn't think it could live up to the great reviews it had received.
We booked this as part of a trip the revolved around my husband climbing the Matterhorn. I knew I would be on my own for at least one night and wanted a place I would be comfortable. The staff did a great job of taking care of me and made me a light dinner as I received text messages from husband on the mountain. Our room was great and we probably had the one of the smaller rooms in the hotel. Comfy bed, plenty of room and we had a ton of gear with us. Plenty of areas to hang out, great wellness center and wonderful breakfasts, snacks and a bar for guests.
The hotel is like a 'W", very modern, the owner's brother is a big modern designer with a hotel of his own behind the Coeur des Alpes and desgin studio/gallery/movie theater in town. The hospitality they extended was most appreciated. The staff picked us up and dropped us off in electric cart. The entry to this place is awesome, you feel like you are entering a club with black marble, roses and these wild chandeliers and go up through the mountain in an elevator. Unlike any place I have stayed before. This is a popular destination due to the great word of mouth so make your reservation early.
