Preferred Hotels & Resorts sets itself apart from other large international hotel chains with an ethos of independence that goes back to its origins in 1960s America. Over the decades, the organisation has grown to encompass hundreds of hotels, residences, resorts and hotel groups worldwide – all of which are completely independent.
The variety of accommodation within the Preferred Hotels & Resorts family ranges from a grand cliff-top hotel on the Amalfi coast to a five-star mountain retreat in Utah and a landmark Art Deco residence in New Delhi. The one thing they all have in common is signing up to the Preferred Global Standards of Excellence, so that as a guest, you know you will always receive the very warmest welcome and exceptional service.
Stay in a Preferred Hotel in Valais
By their very nature, all of the places to stay that are part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts portfolio are wonderfully different. New hotels are joining the association all the time, but one of the premier Preferred hotels in Valais, and indeed the whole of Switzerland, is the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof which occupies a fabulous location in the heart of Zermatt.
Enjoy a five-star stay at one of this Preferred’s most recognisable hotels where historic design meets chic modern decor and impressive contemporary facilities. All the rooms, from standard doubles to deluxe suites, offer lovely views and some look out at the iconic Matterhorn mountain itself. Free WiFi, newspapers and buffet breakfast plus two restaurants, a fitness centre and a full-service spa with indoor pool complete the luxury offering.
An Elite Valais Experience
Staying in one of Valais’s most characteristic resorts puts you in the perfect place to enjoy a break away from the stresses of normal life. By day, mile upon mile of pristine world-class ski slopes await you. Then after dark, the bars and restaurants come alive with the famous alpine hospitality. There’s also a wonderful array of activities to make a summer break just as enjoyable – from hiking and mountain-biking to sightseeing and fine dining.
