The Kronenhof presents a complementary choice to the more renown 5-star Hotels in St. Moritz, like the Palace or the Kulm. Located in the heart of Pontresina (just about 8 minutes by car from the Hoi Polloi of the rich and famous and the not so rich but curious who are crowding the streets of its prominent neighbor) the Grand Hotel can certainly compete in terms of quality and service.
The rooms are spacious, fully equipped and well decorated, though they neither convey a cozy mountain atmosphere nor a luxury splurge-like ambience. The same is true for the public areas, which often seem somewhat under-furnished ... even the extensive collection of Eames lounge chairs does not help. But, of course this should by no means take away from the high-quality environment and service that you will get for your money.
The extensive pool area takes quite a bit of space from the wellness area, which is still sufficiently equipped but certainly not overwhelming.
In sum, the Kronenhof is a good choice (if you have car and don't mind the short drive) and exceed the often overrun competition in St Moritz in many aspects.
