Zermatt/Matterhorn mid September

We are planning on 2-3 nights in Zermatt mid-September. Really need suggestions on where to stay and the best way to see the Matterhorn.

Good weather and you can see the Matterhorn many places.
My favorite place to stay is the Hotel Ambiance.
Book a room with a Matterhorn view, More expensive, of course.
Hannelore and Andre are the last of the family owned hotel operators in town.

Other views of the Matterhorn are great in good weather from the top of the Gornergratbahn, and from Trockner Steg after 2 cable car rides. There it seems like you can reach out and touch it.

We really enjoyed the Europe Hotel & Spa Zermatt. Great half pension and service. Had a Fondue and Raclette evening. Same thing, book a better room with the view. Very friendly and helpful. First and only hotel I have stayed in where they made up the room twice a day. They shared a few recipes and even helped me find the exact pillow for home weeks latter. We went on the Gornergrat Railway stopping at the top and Riffelberg. When open, you can stay at the Hotel Gornergrat Kulm or the Hotel Riffelhaus.
