Hotel Spotlight: Hotel Schweizerhof

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

We’re always keeping our eyes peeled for hotels that go above and beyond when it comes to the creature comforts we’ve come to expect while traveling. That’s why we were pleased to find that The West Australia had down a showcase on Zurich, Switzerland’s famed Hotel Schweizerhof.

Zurich lies at the heart of Switzerland and is a city tourists and business travelers love to visit. It’s considered one of the financial capitals of the country and is a major player in the railway system for the country as well.

The 114-room hotel is, compared to other hotels in the country, mid-sized, but it has an elegant charm that has lasted throughout decades, with a few minor face-lifts. Our favorite feature, of course, is the soundproof windows which, coupled with thick curtains, protect visitors from the noises of the hustle and bustle of the busy streets below.

The plush queen-sized beds, marble bathrooms, and delicious breakfasts are nothing to sneeze at, either.

If you ever have the chance to visit Zurich, look for the Hotel Schweizerhof. The quiet atmosphere and friendly service are hard to beat.
