No it is not publicity for the hotels, it is just that there are a lot and they give some character to the place, and some are even nice to look at; so, if you walk the main street, but also some backstreets, you will see many of these big beginning 20th century buildings.
In the mountains you find of course, the Ibex (picture 1), whose architecture and décor fit well in the village; the Belmunt (picture 2) is an impressive block and it is good it is outside the village.
Others, like the Kronenhof not only have a immodest name, they also try to look like palaces at the feet of the mountains. No, I prefer the ones in local architecture, nicely decorated (picture 4), and the more modest pensions (picture 5) which you would not notice, were it not written! Pontresina is a resort and the hotels give the village a special character, if not charm.
There are tens of hotels in Pontresina, for all tastes, and best is to visit the website which seems very informative.
