This year we had the pleasure of shooting in Switzerland. We got to stay at the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof which is a very cute traditional hotel in the heart of Zermatt. The traditional décor throughout the hotel made me feel like I was getting the full Swiss experience—they even offered horse drawn carriage rides right outside the front doors ready ready to take you on a tour around town, or to and from the train station. Of course the views are breathtakingly gorgeous: the Swiss Alps, the Mattherhorn, but I'll admit my favorite part of my stay at the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof was getting a little Swiss chocolate on my pillow during turndown service.
