    BADRUTT'S PALACE HOTEL is an historic, internationally known luxury hotel in St. Moritz, Switzerland, famous for its glitz and glamor. The existing Hotel Beau Rivage was purchased by Caspar Badrutt in 1892. He hired the architects Chiodera & Tschudi to completely rebuild it, and it emerged four years later in 1896 as Badrutt's Palace Hotel, a successor to the Krup Hause resort hotel which had been the first cold weather winter resort. It is owned and operated by the same Badrutt family, now in their third generation, who created winter tourism in St. Moritz, which had previously been an exclusively summer destination. The most prominent hotel in St. Moritz, royalty, the nouveau riche and idle rich, artists, dignitaries, and performers have stayed at the hotel. The hotel is one of the certified The Leading Hotels of the World. The hotel has 159 rooms, 38 of which are suites.

While savouring the special glamour and caviar with sparkling champagne or having high-tea with good friends, it is the place to see and be seen. "Le Grand Hall" is a meeting place, panorama and stage all in one - the undisputed heart of Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Guests can enjoy sweet delicacies from the in-house patisserie, a fine selection of teas and the breathtaking views, all to the musical accompaniment of a live jazz duo or piano player. Whether Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchock or Herbert von Karajan – many great artists have been inspired by the timeless beauty of "Le Grand Hall" that to this day, has lost nothing of its regal charm.
