The Widders Hotel began as eight private houses which were joined in a rather elaborate renovation between 1990 and 1995. The result is a wonderfully-detailed, interlocking structure - home to service of the highest caliber and intemperate luxury. The rooms are as fascinating as they are varied. None of the floor plans are similar and the interior design spans many styles, from fine classic to chic and modern. Guests who have enjoyed their hospitality and discreet approach include Arnold Schwarzenegger and Cindy Crawford. Another plus point has to be the Widder Bar, which has introduced the most diverse of the jazz greats to its audiences. Pets are allowed on request.
The Dolder Grand Hotel opened its doors in 1899 and is now considered to be one of Switzerland's best hotels. Set right on the edge of the woods, it could not be considered all that central but is wonderfully peaceful. The wedding cake-like building with its charming romantic turrets sits above the town in a sort of majesty, affording a fabulous view over Zurich. In this hotel, the notion of 'customer as king' is no illusion. The fact that the hotel's own golf course (for which a handicap is obligatory) was in the swing of things as early as 1907, speaks volumes. The rooms and suites are very generous in size; rather than being garish and over-extravagant, they ooze chic understated elegance, with soft colors and comfortable bourgeois-style furniture creating a stylish setting. For those seeking some entertainment out on the town, the 'Dolder Bus' runs into the town center and is free to hotel guests (M-Sa).
