Carlton Hotel St. Moritz launches exclusive Swiss experience with the Glacier Express
St. Moritz (19.02.2019) – As of 2 March 2019, the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz will be offering a highly exclusive Swiss experience with the Glacier Express: those who book the “Glacier Express – Excellence Class” special can enjoy a luxurious stay in the five-star hotel combined with a rail journey in the new premium carriage class of the Glacier Express, plus the option of an additional night’s stay in Zermatt.
The “Glacier Express – Excellence Class” offer of the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz combines a stay in the five-star hotel with a panoramic rail journey in the new Excellence Class of the Glacier Express. The stretch of railway between St. Moritz and Zermatt is one of the most impressive in the entire Alpine region: “the slowest express train in the world” passes through numerous tunnels and across proud viaducts on the UNESCO World Heritage Albula Line. The journey continues through the Rhine Gorge – often called the “Swiss Grand Canyon” due to its steep walls – as well as over the Oberalp Pass 2,030 metres above sea level. The new premium carriages will go into operation on 2 March 2019, setting new standards in quality and service: during the eight-hour journey, a Concierge will provide passengers with exciting information as well as serve an aperitif and a regional five-course menu with accompanying wines. Thanks to comfortable lounge seating, each passenger is guaranteed a window seat.
A suite or junior suite in the elegant Carlton Hotel St. Moritz is equally as luxurious: the hotel offers all the amenities of a five-star establishment, such as award-winning gourmet cuisine, a personal butler and a 24-hour Bentley limousine service. Guests can relax in the 1,200 m2 spa or on the sun terrace overlooking the Lake of St. Moritz and affording a view of the surrounding Alpine landscape.
The “Glacier Express – Excellence Class” special can be booked from CHF 2,498 in the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz. The offer includes two one-way tickets for the new Excellence Class, as well as an overnight stay for two in a luxurious junior suite including daily breakfast buffet and daily food and drink to the value of CHF 100 per person. Should guests wish to prolong their stay in Zermatt, the reservations team at the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz will be happy to assist them with their booking.Download text
