Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel
Ranked #32 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We used our points to stay at this Renaissance. It's a 15 minute walk to the train station, but it's a comfortable stroll by a park, and a short walk to the main group tour bus location, if you want to catch one. A nice bar and quiet room.

The meh is more for indifference...

Good:
- It's a Renaissance, so fixtures and fittings were awesome. Had the odd Swiss thing of windows into the bathroom from the room, but the toilet was in a separate room to offset the oddness.
- Staff were very friendly and were helpful where they could be.
- Concierge lounge is on the top floor with awesome views and an above average range of drinks.

Bad:
- Was the second in a run of 3 consecutive stay in a Renaissance that failed on my feather free request, but did look to take of us when the complaint was made.
- Location - really odd. Easy to get to by car, but otherwise stuck amongst warehouses by train tracks.

Room Tip: Make the receptionist come with you and prove that the room is feather free...

From check in to check out this hotel and staff impressed. The hotel is located just outside of the center of town but conveniently across the street from a trolly stop which takes you anywhere in Zurich. We were given access to the member lounge and upgraded to a larger room via our status. The food from the restaurant and bar was great. We highly recommend this hotel for anyone spending time in Zurich.

Room Tip: Free wifi for Gold and Platinum members.

The staff at the Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel are the absolute best I've been around in 15 years of business travel. Perhaps it's also a reflection of the hospitable nature of the Swiss people.

The hotel is two stops from the airport on the S16 line. In 9 minutes, you are in Hardbrucke and a short 5 minute walk to the hotel. If you want to go into the center of town, you are 2 minutes from the number 4 Tram. In less than 10 minutes, you'll be in the center of Zurich.

As a business traveler, I travel across an ocean every two weeks and work long hours in Zurich. The staff at the Renaissance make everything so much easier and pleasant for me. From the front desk staff, to the restaurant/bar, to the executive lounge, to the rooms, everything is top notch.

A special thanks to Silvia who always helps with my reservations and makes sure I'm comfortable, Mery who is the definition of service with a smile, Steffen who is a pleasure to interact with and thorough, Ali who is new and a very nice addition to the staff, Johan who is always so attentive and professional, Zaki who does an amazing job in the exec lounge, Anja who is a great listener and is always looking for ways to respond to customer needs, Daniel who is warm and ready to help with anything, Christoph who leaves no stone unturned when helping customers. And the rest of the staff is amazing as well!

First time to this Hotel that we choose for the convenient location. We arrived at 3 pm to hear that the room was not ready- we were about 10 people in the same situation some of them having waited more than 2 hours already. Young staff at the reception were not trained to handled the client frustration and were not helpful nor very polite. We had the breakfast included into our room rate but since we took it in our room, we had to pay twice, i.e. CHF 92.-- for 2 people - this was not even including butter since we received only margarine and a few pieces of bred.
Otherwide the rooms are good and clean
