Celebrate 60 Years Of The Birds By Hitchcock At The Badrutt’s Palace Hotel
Experience the most authentic Alfred Hitchcock package this summer 2023
60 years ago, in 1963, the now cinematic cult classic, The Birds, by renowned director Sir Alfred Hitchcock hit movie theatres. Hitchcock was a regular guest at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, spending his honeymoon there and returning to the hotel over 30 years.
Richard Leuenberger, Managing Director, said, “The limited- edition Alfred Hitchcock package is “reason to honor the ‘Master of Suspense’ and to offer fans the most authentic The Birds package of all time.”
Get There In Style
Launching this summer of 2023, the Hitchcock package experience begins in style – with a chauffeured escort to the iconic Badrutt’s Palace in a 1968 Rolls-Royce Phantom, formerly owned by the British royal family.
Upon arrival, guests are checked into the exclusive Alfred Hitchcock suite, where the famed filmmaker once resided and where it is said that he regularly observed the alpine choughs over St. Moritz from his suite that inspired and contributed to the film adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s novel The Birds.
Enjoy The Little Things
Cinephiles are invited to follow in the legendary filmmaker’s footsteps and pay homage with a bottle of champagne, two vintage cigars from the 1960s, and two Hitch-Cocktails in the legendary Renaissance Bar – where the director himself once enjoyed them. Diehard fans can live out the Hitchcock experience to the fullest even further, with a bottle of 1947 Chateau Ausone from Saint-Emilion or a similar wine rarity (upon availability).
For decades, the director also had a very special relationship with Badrutt’s Palace Hotel – he was a gastronomy aficionado. “He liked the exceptional service and quickly became a good friend of the Badrutt’s family.” says Richard Leuenberger.
He always preferred staying in the same suite. “His” Suite 501, in which he spent his stays, was therefore later renamed the Alfred Hitchcock Suite. To this day, it retains the Hitchcock touches feel as if he and his wife left only yesterday.
The exclusive “The Birds – Alfred Hitchcock Suite Package” is available during the 2023 summer season and can be booked now via the Official Badrutt’s Palace Hotel Website.
