If you have an early flight in the morning go to Radisson Blu at the Airport. Nice and clean, good service and competent staff. Good connections from town to the hotel either by taxi or S-Bahn. Very comfortable, from the hotel to the check-in only 5min foot walk :)

The Radisson Blu was such an amazing experience when on a recent business trip. I was forced to lay over in Zurich on my way to and from Barcelona. I was SO pleasantly surprised to first find that the hotel is literally part of the airport complex, and that it is an excellent business class hotel with full service, clean and comfortable rooms and quick access to the airport/shopping/train transport to the region.

I've stayed there before but I was again pleasantly surprised with the coziness of the bed. We had a room that faced inwards so you could see the famous Wine Tower and the lobby. The staff was very friendly and helpful and had bathrobes delivered within very few minutes. We used the spa and were the only users at the time, it was a brilliant way to relax before an eventful evening and lovely to heat up during the cold winter days. Despite its proximity to the airport yuo don't hear any noise. I love this hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone who can spend that much money on a night.
Can't say anything about breakfast though, I found it a bit inappropriat that you pay this much for a room and then breakfast is included, so we decided to simply go to one of the many grocery store and eateries at the airport. Very easy to reach Zurich by train also.
I would move in if I could. :-)
The only thing that may be weird for a group of friends travelling is the shower, one can watch the person taking a shower thru a glass window from bed. LOL.

Room Tip: If you don't feel spyed on easily choose a room on one of the top floors with view over the lobb...

This hotel just seems to improve it's service with each visit. The location in the airport and train station complex is excellent for making travel connections. The front desk is super efficient, check-in including scheduling a wake-up call took less than 5 minutes. The restaurant and room service are excellent.

We stayed one night last week and will stay again this week while transiting Zurich. While this hotel is more expensive than others close by it wins hand down based on location - very easy walk from airport / train station.

The staff were really great - very welcoming and helpful particularly when we wanted them to store luggage for 5 days.

We ate at the Italian restaurant and found it to be excellent - not too expensive (considering this is Switzerland after all), excellent service and food.

Our room (I presume half of them do) faced the interior atrium which is not to my liking but then we did not ask for anything specific - I'll request an exterior facing room next time.

Only issues - room decor is a bit dated and the shower stall pretty much floods the bathroom floor (fixed screen only goes half way across opening).

Hotel is pretty expensive, particularly mid-week but overall worth the added convenience.

Room Tip: Ask for an exterior facing room.

This Radisson is a fine property. The room was clean and of reasonable size. The real benefit of this hotel is that it is basically located within the airport complex. It is less than 5 minutes from check-in. There is also a large train station there with easy transport (10 min.) to downtown or wherever you wish to go. We were there overnight on a layover from Turkey to Washington D.C. so it was extremely convenient.

Nicely furnished and spacious room, although I really don't understand why one would need to see to bathroom via a window. Breakfast was excellent, there was even a chef cooking omelettes. However dinner at the Italian restaurant was pretty basic and expensive. Can't really say anything about price/quality ratio as airline was paying the bill.
