My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of spending a day and a night in Zurich in between travel locations on our 10th wedding anniversary celebration. The hotel is absolutely without fault although such 'faultless' attention to detail does come at a jaw dropping price! We were lucky enough to have been kindly upgraded to a sumptuously appointed suite and marveled at the art and the comfortable bed. The location is absolutely perfect for both business and shopping. The service is attentive but not invasive and nothing was too much trouble.
The restaurant at breakfast has to be one of the classiest, most welcoming settings we've ever seen--the orchids and in fact, all of the flowers were breathtaking.
My only nit-pic, is that the price for breakfast is ridiculously over the top --especially since you are already paying top dollar for the accommodations--it does seem a bit greedy to not provide breakfast with the price of the room.
Having said that, we thoroughly enjoyed our very short visit and would definitely recommend this hotel.

- The Baur au Lac has the discerning tastes of its guests to thank for the leading position it has maintained for more than 170 years in the international luxury hotel industry. Set in its own park, the hotel enjoys a unique location overlooking the lake and the Alps - and yet is still but a few minutes' walk from the Paradeplatz financial district and the Bahnhofstrasse, Zurich's celebrated shopping high street. While offering the ultimate in comfort and privacy, the rooms and suites have been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable technical refinement. The large marble bathrooms with heated floor and daylight match up to the highest demands of comfort, design and equipment. ... more less
