I spend a little while thinking about an appropriate title and I did not want to repeat what others have said but I gotta say its very difficult. So I decided to use my first impression I had of the Dolder Grand when I arrived.
I spend only 2 Nights at the Dolder Grand and I feel I have only managed to grasp a breath of what this plain gorgeous Hotel has to offer. When I arrived I did not had to say a single word, a Staff Member of the Hotel ask me if I leave again today and when I want my car ready in the morning, they grabbed the bags and guided us the way to the reception. Fantastic Service I might add here already.
After the checkin we where guided to our Room by a very lovely Woman who made us feel right at home. When I closed the door of the Room 2 things happened, I was totally amazed by the size of the door itself and up on closing it the incredible Silence. I did not year a sound and it stayed that way, not a peeps from any neighbour, just silence. My upmost complements to the Architect of the new Wing of the Dolder this is relaxation pure.
We stayed in the Junior Suite with view over Lake Zurich. This Room might fill a few pages if I go in every detail but let me say there was nothing you could have asked more. From a spacious walking Wardrobe where you even had a drawer with Wine Glasses a selection of beverages, next door the spacious Bathroom with all its features such as a TV in the Mirror or a relaxing Rain Forrest like Shower with several front streams, plenty of care taking products and even a toothbrush in case you forgot yours. Did I mention the Bath tub in front of the Window with Lake view?
The entire room was controlled by a single remote, from the TV over the inner and outer curtains as well as the Light in every room. There was not a single moment I actually missed anything.
In fact it was the first time in my 20+ years of traveling around the world that I had not a single negative or nagging word to say - at all. It was one of the nicest Rooms I have ever stayed in and it well deserve 5 Stars in comfort and pampering.
As I said I only spend 2 Nights there so I did not had the chance to check out all the facilities but I had a peek and I can only agree with all the other visitors it looked fantastic. From the long Hallways with beautiful lightning to the carefully selected interia on every level all very well done. And I can assure you there are even some surprises to see. One for example is a Picture in the Hallway to the Restaurant from what I see its Artist is no one less than Sylvester Stallone.
I spend the first evening in the Garden Restaurant and even there the food was fantastic. The Service the food just everything, its not something you would expect considering there is a Micheline Starred Restaurant literally next door.
I went there the second day but I wont write about it here. The Restaurant deserve's its own review.
So if you ever come to Zurich and you want something special I suggest you stay at the Dolder Grand. Its not just a Castle like Hotel with its many features but also and to a big extend the service you get. I been to many top class Hotels and there is always something Majestic about them, the way the Staff talks to you which is a little different in the Dolder Grand. The Staff makes you feel right at home, they are down to earth easy to talk to and yet very respectful and with alot of detail. For one when I collected my car in the morning I was always ask if I like a bottle of water for my journey. Priceless!
Great Thanks for this experience to the Dolder Grand and their Staff I had a great time and look forward to return.
