To celebrate 100 years since esteemed British film director Alfred Hitchcock entered the film industry, iconic Alpine hotel, Badrutt’s Palace, where Hitchcock honeymooned in 1926, is launching a dedicated season-long package from June 28 to September 9.
While at his desk in Room 501, Alfred Hitchcock is said to have written The Birds, inspired by large flocks of mountain birds
Honouring his lifelong devotion to the hotel and the majestic Engadin valley – a regular inspiration for several of his hit films – the three-night experience will include a stay in The Hitchcock Suite (room 501), indulgent Hitchcock-inspired dishes, a cocktail making class in the storied Renaissance Bar, and live screenings of Hitchcock’s most celebrated films in the hotel’s celebrated Embassy Ballroom.
For Hitchcock, the St. Moritz valley transcended personal attachment; the breath-takingly scenic views provided the backdrop for many of his most renowned films, including The Prude’s Fall (1924) and The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956), both showing off the prominent mountains sprinkled with stylish skiers. While sat at his desk in Room 501, he is said to have written The Birds (1963), inspired by the characteristic large flocks of mountain birds soaring high above the hotel’s turrets and spires.
Stays in The Hitchcock Suite offer guests a profound sense of enchantment and creativity and a rare chance to experience the valley as Hitchcock once did. During the three-night stay, guests will also be spoiled with Hitchcock’s favourite delectable dishes at the hotel’s Le Restaurant and Le Grand Hall, such as Venetian schnitzel and fries, followed by panna cotta and mixed berries.
