The huts are pretty popular in July and August. A reservation is highly recommended, because they're in remote locations with no alternatives if they're fully booked. If you don't want to book well in advance, you can call them one or two days prior to your arrival to make sure they have place left. Of course they may be fully booked by that time, but at least you know before heading up there. In that case you can pick a village as your destination, so that you'll have multiple lodging options and transportation. The huts can be found on www.sac-cas.ch/en/huts/search-a-hut.html.
Note that small villages may have one or two hotels only, so that's quite limited too. Make sure you do some research so you know your options and alternatives. The weather may influence your plans too, so alternatives are useful in any case.
I didn't do this route myself so I can't comment on must sees. Hopefully someone else picks up on this.
