Marriott Zurich [Master Thread]

Apologies if a thread already exists, but I couldn't find one for the Marriott Zurich.

This is a good hotel located within a pleasant 8 minute walk from the central train station. It’s a short walk to a tram station that will get you to Old Town (or back to the HBf) in a few stops. Was upgraded from a base room to a corner junior suite overlooking the river. Toilet is located separately from the shower stall. Rooms at this hotel start from the 24th floor, which is interesting as that floor is actually the 5th.

The Club Lounge is actually located on the ground floor, and is open 7 days a week. In the mornings, a spread is put out with a good selection of cold and hot foods. In the evenings, there are three selections of hot snacks, along with a variety of cold snacks. Soda is available from the fridge all day, along with donuts and cake.

WiFi is 20Mbps. The gym is spacious with several cardio machines. Would return here again if I come back to Zurich.

There isn't a dedicated thread (according to quick search), just mentions in the Zurich family thread. So perhaps this thread should have Master Thread added to the title, so individual trip reports on the property can go in this thread.

Thanks for the trip report. Much appreciated.

Hotel website. Cat 6.

Cheers.

I've stayed here as well and agree with the OP's report. Also the eCHo restaurant is pretty good, and prices are reasonable (for Zurich, that is). Corner rooms on the upper floors are very quiet and can have nice views.

Booking a 2 night stay here, would anyone recommend the North Wing or Main Building for greater odds of a better view?

Definitely request the Main tower, higher floor, facing the river.

I used points for a 2 night stay here in May. Despite SNA attempt no upgrade was available and the property was sold old during first night of my stay. My room, a Superior room in Main Building occupied a corner and had lots of windows with nice views from over city and I was allowed to check in a little early which was appreciated.

The location is a nice walk along the river from the main train station and that was the main selling point for me. The M club on lobby level, while crowded had a nice spread in the evening including self pour wine and beer tap, rotating hot items and a nice cheese display. Breakfast was fairly decent as well.

The hotel did participate in Make a Green Choice however this is the first time I've been directed to personally bring the card to the front desk (before 11pm) instead of hanging on the door. While slightly annoying, the points actually had posted before I woke up the next day so better than having to email in for missing points which is often the case.

Overall, this is a fine hotel and good value of points given sky high rates during my stay, location was good and Id be happy to return again should I be in Zurich..
