Class, comfort and the security of a global brand recommend this luxury hotel on the bank of the Limmat River. Close to the train station and a short walk from the famous Bahnhofstrasse and its endless shopping opportunities, the Zurich Marriot Hotel impresses with deluxe rooms and five-star views. While rooms vary in size, decor and outlook, even the standard is furnished with rich linens, a soft king bed and a plug-in panel that negates the need to unplug desk lamps to power laptops and phone chargers. The stroll into the Old Town is a pleasant ten-minute endeavor and trams are close at hand for when walking isn't an option. And while food isn't underrepresented in Zurich, the Marriot's restaurants form an entity in their own right the White Elephant's Thai cuisine particularly noted.
