While researching hotels in Zurich, the Baur au Lac seemed to land near the top of every list I could find. Now I know why. It is simply one of the best hotels we have every had the pleasure at which to stay. Everything about our stay was simply superb. We arrived early from the US, but the staff was able to show us to our room very quickly. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and were fortunate enough to have been given a lovely upgrade to a city suite, with a large bedroom and separate, equally spacious living room. The bathroom was positively palatial, with white marble and sparkling chrome everywhere, and a beautiful, large soaking tub. The bed was very comfortable, with soft, beautiful linens. We were treated like royalty, from the sumptuous spread of champagne, fruit, and sweets waiting for us in our room, to the greeting by the concierge and doorman each morning when we emerged to walk the city. We enjoyed 2 meals at the hotel. The first afternoon, we had lunch at the terrace restaurant, with a view to the grassy lawn and lake beyond. The food was quite good here, and the setting is spectacular. The last night, we splurged on dinner at Pavillion, their Michellin starred restaurant. The room was one of the most beautiful dining rooms I have ever seen, and the service and food were amazing. The dinner was not inexpensive, but well worth the price to experience this level of service. Without exception, every member of the staff at Baur au Lac was exceedingly helpful and kind, reflecting the high standard of the hotel. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
- 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
