“Very nice hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

This was our second stay at this hotel. It seems to be in a strange location, but is easily accessable by tram or train from the main train station. This has been our stop-over after a week of skiing in Austria and it has been a pleasure staying there. The rooms are very nice, the restaurant and bar are exceptional and the staff is second to none.

This hotel is located 10 minutes from Zurich airport (using a cab or public transportation - the "tram 10") and at the same time is located 20 minutes from Zurich downtown (using the same tram 10).
The rooms are comfortable and the staff creates a friendly environment making you feel well even far from home.
Breakafast was ok, the restaurant was good and the wireless (paid) works well - everything you need for a business trip if you don't mind to spend some minutes in the public transportation system (that works with the Swiss precision).
My room windows were directed to the train tracks, but I had no problem with noise - the windows block the noise very well and the curtains block the light also, allowing a good nigh of sleep.
As a summary: good cost/benefit, comfortable and modern hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get the end of corridor rooms - they are bigger.

Very convenient if you are in the West Zurich area for work. New rooms, decent lobby bar and very nice breakfast. The two comments I have are : Why do they not have free wifi? and the most glaring thing was that the mini bar had two bottles of water. Ina business hotel not offering a full bar on payment basis is unacceptable. For the rest the hotel is excellent with very polite staff and efficient service.

Room Tip: try and get a room on the higher level

This new hotel is a Marriott partner and was recently built in an upcoming area of Zurich filled with numerous commercial construction projects. The room (#1010) had loads of amenities and conveniences, including a water closet with an additional sink, fridge, safe, large desk, electrical plugs everywhere, complimentary bottled water, soft linens and lots of thick extra towels. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the modern decor is sleek and inviting. Now for the negatives -- all relating to the location. The room overlooked a high-rise construction zone and, unbelievably, what appeared to be a shantytown. Although the hotel is, we were told by a taxi driver, a quick train stop from the Zurich Airport, we had to take a cab to other parts of the city for attractions, restaurants and shopping. In a year or so, this will be an excellent location for business travelers working in this vibrant part of Zurich.

I have been to Zurich for work on a number of occasions and like the familiarity of an American chain with my lodging. I know this takes away from the local flavor, but call me committed to Marriott. This hotel is newer and has done an excellent job of joining an older feel with a urban one. My room was beautiful, including new hardwood floors, a full shower/bath and a small living space. It was quite a treat compared to the small living quarters you can sometimes get elsewhere in Europe (and Zurich, for that matter). The staff was highly friendly (all speak English, if that's a need for you) and very helpful with how to navigate Switzerland via rail. Cabs are readily available or can be called to the door within 5 minutes or so, so if that's a concern, your needs are readily met. My only issue was that there were no American outlets like other Marriott at which I have stayed in the area have. No problem; I had my converters as most everyone will have or should have! However, it did cause me to only be able to charge either my mobile phone or my tablet instead of both. In the end, not a big deal whatsoever but be aware if you had that expectation. Great hotel. Great location. Convenient to the city center with trains leaving every 10 minutes or so from the station (about a 5 minute walk away). Stay here.
