Hi, as an admitted minority to this forum, my three trips to the Swiss Alps in the last year, are all by rental cars, and not by train, I wish to offer my 2 cents.
The Waldhaus in Sils Maria is my favorite hotel in Switzerland. I stayed there on all three visits. Waldhaus Sils overlooks the two lakes (Silsersee and Silvaplana) on either side of Sils Maria, and looks up to Val Fex, a magical place accessible by horse drawn carriage. A live camera shot from the roof of Waldhaus Sils is here:
sils.roundshot.com which I visit daily
But having said that, it still might be a more prudent for your family to choose Pontresina because of its convenience to trains. Sils is about a five mile bus ride from the St Moritz train station.
In any case, you can't go wrong with choosing to visit the Engadin region of Switzerland. Enjoy your visit!
