10 (excellent) is the overall score which I happily assign to Riffelalp Resort. Riffelalp is not expensive—it is priceless. Riffelalp stands as a model of the warm hospitality and personalized service that American hotels ought to provide, but probably never will. (Even America’s 5-star hotels have mostly degenerated into cold and bloodless corporate monsters, in a way that is emblematic of the broader corporate predations afflicting my country—but that’s an editorial which deserves to be written and published by better writers than Jim Mowery.) Last week someone must have prayed “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”—and Mother Nature must have listened! Never in 21 previous Januarys in Switzerland, nor in 65 previous winters in the USA, had this visitor seen so much white purity in your homeland. It was the perfect excuse for me to forget about hiking and to just be lazy and to enjoy Riffelalp’s good food and fine spa and excellent reading materials, and to be coddled in every way inside the sanctuary of the hotel. When I stop returning to Riffelalp, you’ll know I’m dead. Most appreciatively, Jim Mowery (James H. Mowery I. 200 Moncure Drive Alexandria, Virginia 22314 USA) Riffelalp's quiet and unhurried atmosphere is an absolute treasure. Riffelalp always provides great food and fine beverages. Only by sheer willpower and self-restraint was I able to resist some of-----but certainly not all of----- Riffelalp's fine culinary temptations, so as to maintain my body-weight at 209 kilograms during the stay I just completed. Riffelalp is a model of excellence which America's hotels ought to emulate but probably never will. Riffelalp may be as close to heaven as I ever get. Paradise! Riffelalp's pine-treed and car-free location, at 2,222 meters above sea level (MuM), provides a priceless retreat from urban tensions and 21st century stresses. What a purification-ritual it was, to have snowflakes melting on my bald head while soaking in Riffelalp's heated outdoor swimming pool. Riffelalp is a last vestige of old-world charm and hospitality. Yummy! Riffelalp's saunas and steam rooms always provide a perfect benediction to the resort's purification-ritual. God bless Riffelalp! Positively palatial!
