Your reasons are correct. having a car makes your location sensible, and, the price is good.
You'll not that I said that we used to stay in Brienz, for all those reasons plus lower cost, even when we did not have a car....about 50% of the time. I'll admit that the quality vs. price considerations of that incarnation of the Weisses Kreuz were a a draw. However, they could not maintain their standards at prices that were profitable. The altered the balance a bit.
You also forgot proximity to the outstanding restaurant at the hotel Victoria, in Meiringen.
Nonetheless, over time, the ambience of staying in Wengen became more important to us.
Either way will work, and your way will work a lot better if the weather is not cooperative.
However, except for price, your logic would apply to Interlaken as a compromise.
By the way, I don't consider reason #6 to have much weight.
Everyone's perspective is based on their own set of needs and values. When we have used an apartment, we appreciated the spaciousness and the kitchen.
