I travel to Zug on business fairly frequently. I used to say at the Swiss Hotel, but I now prefer the Ochsen. The rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable with everything you need (and free water!) Staying in town provides so many more options for dinner with lots of restaurants just a short stoll from the hotel. But you don't need to walk anywhere, the food in the restaurant at the Ochsen is excellent (try the fish cooked 3 ways), and the staff friendly and helpful.
The hotel has free wired internet access where wi-fi would be better. My only complaint would be the single pillow which was far too thin for my taste.
If you are going to Zug please stay somewhere else so I can still get a room at the Ocshen!
