Zurich has an innovative pinnacle of luxury hotel or should I say an innovative old pinnacle, Dolder Grand is an 1899 structure splendid with soaring turrets as well as timbered patios had been totally renovated and now it is bordered by 2 glass and steel wings which reflect the natural ambiance. Set atop the mountain of Zürichberg, this expansive resort hotel that began life as Victorian-period Kurhaus, has been provided a simple and minimalist makeover, combining the novel Corinthian capital as well as amazing crystal chandeliers of the novel building with the bony, less-is-more more design of the ground-breaking wings. The luxurious rooms for guests, some with hard wood floors, are balanced by a superb in house spa providing the whole thing from calming massages to surgery. The formal restaurant is stylish, the stark whiteness as well as bead curtains of casual one downstairs remind a cafeteria to some. However the food is superb and excellent.
This amazing hotel was adequately impressive as it was, however it entered new league due to massive refurbishment by Norman Foster, an architect base in UK. This is not only a fresh decoration for an outdated hotel, however a comprehensive re-design that has a bold modern addition wrapping in the novel turreted hilltop chateau. Inside the hotel, it is virtually unrecognizable. Guests rooms in the major building as well as the newly made wings are very rooming, the style is contemporary, the amenities totally modern, and the bathrooms are extremely amazing. There is nothing forcefully avant-garde or edgy about it- however neither is it at all hotel drab-as a matter of fact this may be the contemporary in expensive luxury hotels.
Location – The Dolder Grand is nestle on a hillside that is fifteen minute funicular as well as tram trip from Zurich central, the hotel itself being a city hotel resort has an amazing roster of services and facilities to support the claim. There is a gold course nearby; there is also a space of spa as well as ice rink that opens during winter season. The atmosphere is even amazing and striking on a sunny day, when the Zurich Lake could be seen shining from below as well as snow covered Alps, distant however still extremely regal, emerge over the sphere.
Character and Style – Dating from the year 1899 and re-opened in year 2008 following the renovation of the vast extension, the hotel customary core is now surrounded by 2 elegant curved wings. The combination works very well, on the other hand the most dominant style feature of this hotel is its unmatched set of museum-quality artworks, scattered seemingly casually in corridors as well as along courtyards. Look out for a Dali on the way to feast, Botero sculptures in the spa as well as lots of priceless pieces by popular artists such as Andy Warhol, Keith Haring as well as Henry Moore.
