Good location in Zurich

I am visiting Zurich with my family to see the sights. We have a choice of staying at the Renaissance Zurich Towers Hotel (Turbinenstrasse 20 · Zurich, 8005) or Renaissance Zurich Hotel (Thurgauerstrasse 101 Zurich-Glattpark, Switzerland 8152).

Can anyone advise if one is in a better location than the other see the major sights in Zurich we may want to see?

The one at Glattpark lies between the airport and the Messe (exhibition ground), practically out of town. The Tower is located near Hardbrucke station, with a construction site in between. As a tourist, these will be my last resort location. If you are using Marriott points, why not try Marriott instead.

I agree that both locations aren't central. If you have to decide between the two, I would opt for the Tower Hotel as the connections to downtown are better. It's also in walking distance to a few good restaurants (for instance La Salle or Clouds) and the shops in Puls5 mall. The whole area is developing and there are a few construction sites around the hotel, but they shouldn't affect your stay too much.

Both hotels are a bit outside. If you have the possibility, choose a hotel closer to the city center. If it must be Renaissance, take the towers hotel. It is closer to the main attractions and there are a few restaurants around.

I don't know about your itinerary, how about staying in Renaissance Lucerne instead? and do a day trip to tour Zurich.
