I'd last been to Baur au Lac in 2002 and was anxious to share what made my top five ever list with my spouse. Despite the curious postings here, thankfully it was the same, if not better. Check in was friendly, gracious and warm. The room was lovely (fresh flowers, heated floors and complimentary mini bar). Our dinner at Pavillon was spectacular. The food (which included what the waiter described as "surprises" - wonderful, several, amuse bouche) - was scrumptious as was the wine which was a choice from staff. We had top-notch attention, especially from the outgoing concierge, Jeremie Varry - who sorted through our train ticket scheduling challenge and made the rest of our trip much easier. The Baur au Lac moved up on our list, and for us remains one of the very top hotel experiences in the world. We absolutely loved our stay and hope to return. Accommodations, food and service at the absolute best.
- Official Description (provided by the 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
