Crans Ambassador

3 rte. du Petit Signal, Crans-Montana, Valais, 3963, Switzerland

Built in the shape of mountain peaks, this classic hotel perched high on a hillside above Montana has been refurbished in a contemporary style that's purposefully understated to let the views take center stage. Tasteful touches include modern art on the walls and marble and wood accents throughout the hotel; though room decor is on the standard side, it's enlivened by a touch of plaid on the chairs and curtains. Four restaurants offer everything from casual bar food to Alpine specialties to elegant fare with an Asian touch. The spa, built with wood and natural stone, is the largest in Crans-Montana and has a heated swimming pool and large gym—again with glorious views.
