HRH hotel wants you to live like a rock star!
The oldest Swiss ski town, Davos, still battles it out with nearby-rival St Moritz, as the birthplace of skiing holidays, but locals in Davos claim to be the very first as they had the first ski lift – up the Parsenn.
Davos was brought to the attention of the world’s rich holidaymakers in the 1890s by famous author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and is nowadays internationally renowned as the home of the World Economic Forum and many other lofty events, but it has kept pace with the young and swinging and vibrant ski market, because there among a string of famous 5-star old-style residences is the Hard Rock Hotel and Residences, which attracts swinging rock lovers young and old.
