“Outside downtown, Nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

If you don't mind a little adventure on the train, this is a good place to stay. Although expensive, it's still a lot less than the places located in city center. The front desk was very helpful with this, explaining how to take the trains and also selling the tickets for them, very easy. It's about a 15 minute ride to downtown and also a 9 minute ride to the airport, so really not a bad place to stay if you want to get out of the hotel. As far as the hotel itself, the place was very nice, and worthy of a Renaisance. The executive lounge was on the better side than I usually see, and the rooms were quite nice. Everything you would want at a Marriott. If I came back to Zurich I would have no problem staying here again.

I stayed overnight for a work conference. It's a 10 min walk from the train station and the rooms are modern and a good size. The food served throughout the day was exceptional for a work conference. Lots of small modern European tapas like dishes. Yum. The evening meal in the restaurant was very good.

We stayed in a Club room and had a very good experience. The hotel is modern and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom clean and very modern in design. The bar in the lobby has a good burger/steak menu, and provides a nice environment for socialising. Would definitely stay here again. The location of the hotel is a little awkward, it is surrounded by construction and thus views from the hotel are pretty poor.

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
