Since there are a few separate base areas to choose from when visiting St Moritz, it is essential to check the exact location of a hotel before booking a holiday here. St Moritz Dorf is home to most of the five-and four-star hotels, while Suvretta has the palatial Suvretta House hotel and a couple of more modest places. St Moritz Bad is a quieter and less showy place to stay.

There is also the option of a five-star and a four-star hotel in the separate village of Celerina 3km from Dorf, plus several apartments. Each village, including Celerina, has access into the main area of slopes at Corviglia.
