“Nice Bar/Lounge at the Courtyard Marriott”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The Courtyard Marriott at Max-Bill-Platz is uninspiring but comfortable. They have a small shop (that they call a "market") where you can buy popcorn and crisps. The rooms are nice, exactly like the Marriott chain and coffee makers are supplied in the rooms.

There was only a choice of 4 movies and there was no room service menue but food was available from the ground floor bar/lounge and can be delivered to your room for an additional fee. The problem with this is that you have to go downstairs to know whats available or spend a difficult time on the telephone enquiring!

Paper and pens are not supplied so remember to bring your own if you have work to do that requires taking notes! Also, don't get caught out with swiss adaptors. European plugs won't work so remember to buy a Swiss converter at the airport or risk a flat bettery! My room had 3 sockets - Swiss, European and USA. This was very convenient but when I wanted to work from the lounge I came unstuck (English phrase, apologies :)

The hotel bar/lounge is worth a mention because its lovely. They have a happy hour from 5.30pm where you can get a large variety of cold meats, olives and snacks for free with each drink! Also, if you like spice try their warm nachos with dip - SPICY!!

Room Tip: Take a room close to the gym if you want to get on the best equipment in the morning!

Welcomed standard comfort of Marriott in Zurich's business area. Exactly what you need after a busy day. Clean rooms, friendly staff, wi-fi and you don't need to crawl under a desk in search of a plug for your comp. Good restaurant option downstairs, great sushi place steps away, grocery store across the road. Tram and train stations 3 min walk, 10-15 min ride and you are downtown

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

it is a very nice Marriott property offering clean rooms, comfortable dining and Bfast, courteous staff , able to arrive by train or direct bus from Zurich airport. The restaurant MAX is cozy, clean, with excellent service. There are couple of other bars near by and there is a COOP super food market for bringing your own knicknacks like chips, fruit and wine and beer. I stay here because of my business at ETH Univ, Hoggerberg, where a bus# 80 gets you in 10 minutes from the staff next to the hotel. For tourists travel, this is not an ideal hotel due to completely far away from downtown shopping streets and avenues of Zurich. Even though tram # 11 takes only 15 minutes from Oerlikon train station stop to inner stadt, it is still not convinient for a tourist vacation.

Room Tip: the rooms ending in even numbers open up to the square area not towards the busy street. Request roo...

I flew into Zurich airport on a Saturday morning and arrived at the hotel before noon. The staff was very friendly and let me check in to catch up some sleep. The room is very clean and my whole stay here is wonderful. The hotel is 5 minutes by walk from a major station called Oerlikin. There is a co-op supermarket across the street, selling things ranging from rotisserie chicken to sushi. With a five-minute walk, you can be in the Oerlikin station vicinity and eat at restaurants over there. A train ride to center city Zurich by tram (trolley) takes around 30 minutes from the station. There are also direct trains from this station to major locations such as Basle and Luzern. The Oerlikin station is only 20 minutes bus ride away costing around 6.x CHF. The hotel is in a very nice neighborhood. I walked around in the evening and found myself surrounded by some office/residential mix. There are also a few nice little parks near the hotel. I regret not finding them in the morning and visiting them. I enjoy this hotel a lot. The slightly remote location in my opinion is definitely a good tradeoff with the price they charge in center city.

One thing about my business trabel habits is that I like predictability. This Marriott Courtyard is clean, quiet and convenient. I like the fact it is 2-3 blocks from the Zurich - Oerlikon train station. When it is time to pack and leave for the airport in the morning, I'm at my own schedule and not of a hotel shuttle. You can also obtain your train transfer from the hotel front desk.

If you're not into a last night meal at the hotel restaurant, the Co-Op market is across the street. Pick up a couple of rolls and some freshly sliced deli meat, a bottle of wine and dessert to carry back to your room.

I've walked the neighborhood and you can find some smaller local establishments, should your curiousity lead you in that direction.

I thought my room was a little pricey compared to other airport location properties, but again, I prefer the predictability.

A typical European Courtyard - clean - efficient - relatively affordable - good amenities
my only criticism is the steep fee for internet access - this should be waived like in the US.
the room was sized to US standard (roomy) and not Swiss (typically tiny). the hotel is located in the middle of a high tech industrial and also residential neighborhood marked by a very spartanic, rigid architecture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Bill).
The hotel is great if you need easy access to the University Irchel campus ( tram # 10) or the ETH Hoenggerberg campus ( take bus # 80 ; bus stop is in front of the door)
