The best welcome I have ever received at a hotel from Mr. Schneider. Genuinely welcoming not the artificial welcome one usually gets (if that). Went out of his way to make dinner recommendations with candid and accurate assessments of the various possibilities.
Clean, very nice, great amenities. Expedia lied when it said the hotel is 5.4 kms from the airport. It cost be CHF140 in cab fare. I could have stayed at a 5 Star Resort next to the airport. Bad, bad Expedia!

Location perfect! Took train from Luzerne right to hotel in late morning. Had planned to just drop off luggage and then take train back to Zurich for day of exploring. Fortunately, room was available so we checked in and then had plenty of time to make a trial run to our departure check-in point for our 7am flight the next day. Then off to Zurich (12 minutes) for lunch and an long afternoon of shopping and exploring. My only complaint is that our dinner in the hotel restaurant was frightfully expensive even for Switzerland! However, the meal was excellent, the room was large and well appointed and the hotel location is unsurpassed.
"One very happy and surprised customer! 4.5 Stars."
I have been traveling to Europe for the last 30 years but this is the first time I have been to Zurich and Swissotel's staff, service, amenities, cleanliness and location helped to make my stay in Zurich even better than I had hoped for. All staff can easily and fluently switch between English and German (Swiss) with the greatest of ease, anything I asked of them was never too much and they were always willing to know more for everyone. The restaurant serves excellent meals throughout the day, breakfast was superior to all other places I have stayed (not free but worth paying for).
The swimming pool and spa area are located on the 32 floor with magnificent views of the valley. sadly there is no view of the lake or river, but still a great view.
The facility is very clean and modern feeling, the rooms were excellent and size was perfect (NOTE: not American oversized).
I would recommend this hotel to everyone, keeping in mind it is a short and easy 5 minute train journey into the city center with Oetliker Banhof (Train Stn) right across the street. The airport is only 5 minutes from the opposite direction of the city center. All transfers are very easy.
Zurich is my new favorite city and my stay at Swissotel definitely contributed to my experience in a very positive way.
I would rate this hotel with 4.5 Stars out of 5, a 4.75 Star rating if it was within walking distance of the city center.
This hotel is a great place to stay if you are int he area. It has everything you need. Beds are comfortable, breakfast is well prepared with a lot of selections and the restaurant on the top floor has some surprisingly good food.
The staff is friendly and dealt well with the language barrier. Mine not theirs.
The only negative was that the bathroom had no place to hang anything. The floor always got wet and the layout of the bathroom was not ideal. It was clean and worked well but it could have been better with a few hooks and shelves.
Even though check in wasn't until 2pm, we went to drop our bags off in the morning and they told us our room was ready! Such a relief after a 13 hour flight! The staff were extremely friendly and a wonderful touch was the offer of bottles of water upon our arrival and departure. Excellent room, excellent staff. The best hotel we've stayed at so far during this trip.
