Hotel Waldhaus Sils

Want to enjoy all the benefits of St. Moritz but without having to stay there? Then head a mere six miles away to the picturesque village of Sils-Maria and the 5-star Hotel Waldhaus. Nestled on a forested hill between two lakes the Hotel Waldhaus stands guard over the village. More than 100 years-old, the hotel is still owned and operated by same founding family (fourth generation). All rooms are non-smoking. Great fun to wander the halls, stairways and public rooms to admire the various historical pictures and objects on display. Of course, the hotel has all the usual attributes of a 5-star resort such as tennis courts, swimming pool, well-kept grounds and multiple dining venues. Guests receive complimentary passes for use on trains and buses in the valley. Every 20-30 minutes a bus stops in the village, then makes the 10-minute trip to St. Moritz's city center/train station--meaning a car isn't needed here. Lots of hiking trails in the area including a nearby ski lift. Website:
