Scene

Sophisticated and stylish with futuristic accents 

Radisson Blu Hotel at Zurich Airport offers modern style with cool tones and clean lines that reflect its status as a business hotel -- though it's not without plenty of fun accents. With mottled gray tiled floors and black accents, the atrium-style lobby shows off a central wine bar with a spectacular glass tower that rises over 50 feet, is filled with wine bottles, and changes colors with unique LED lighting. As if that’s not enough, wine bottles in the tower are retrieved by cable-lifted “Wine Angels” who perform aerial acrobatics. While the hotel’s design is sleek and modern, it also manages to incorporate bright and eclectic accents that add to the chic mix. For example, the hotel’s lounge has mid-century Swan chairs in baby blue and lime green set against rich black and dark blue walls.

Location

Attached to the Zurich airport, 10 minutes to the heart of Zurich

Attached directly to the Zurich Airport, the Radisson Blu is a brief walk to the airport check-in and gives direct access to airport shops and restaurants as well as to the Zurich Airport railway station. Guests can walk to the train station in two minutes and take a train to downtown Zurich, arriving in city's center in 10 minutes. But with so many on-site amenities, the Radisson encourages guests to stay put.

Rooms

Eclectic, modern style with designer furniture and lots of amenities

While rooms range significantly in size, style, and decor, they all feature designer furniture and reflect the spirit of the common areas, with sleek, modern lines and tasteful, eclectic accents. For example, One Bedroom Suites have black and gray furniture and carpeting and white walls, but these neutral tones are pleasantly offset with bright details like highlighter-green pillows, a fluorescent-pink television cabinet, and turquoise accents. The bathrooms also range significantly in style and size, some with full-tiled showers in gray and white, others with freestanding bathtubs. All contain free toiletries by This Works. All rooms also have free, high-speed Wi-Fi, flat-screen LCD TVs with cable, coffee and tea stations, and a minibar. Some rooms come with extra amenities, such as free non-alcoholic drinks from the minibar, Bose sound systems, bathrobes and slippers, a free morning newspaper, or Nespresso coffeemakers. While most guests find the rooms surprisingly quiet for an airport hotel -- thanks to soundproof windows -- some guests facing the atrium occasionally complain of hearing noise from the lobby. 

Features

Business-related amenities, plus on-site restaurants, fitness center, meeting rooms, and day lounges 

Decked out with amenities, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Zurich Airport has almost anything a business traveler might need or want. Chic lounges, “guest showers,” and private day lounges with small beds offer spaces for pre-check-in travelers to prepare for meetings or relax. The hotel also has 52 meeting and board rooms of vastly different styles and sizes. These range from the fun “Brain Box” room with a bright pink wall, large chalkboard, and colorful bean bag chairs, to a basic meeting room with white walls and a large, U-shaped table. The hotel’s largest room, the ballroom, can accommodate up to 600 people and is ideal for conferences or conventions.

The PACE Fitness Club gives exercisers views of the wine tower from cardio machines such as bikes and treadmills. It also has space for relaxation, including a sauna and steam bath. The separate and larger Airport Fitness and Wellness Club is actually in the basement of the Zurich airport and costs an extra fee, but it offers additional cardio equipment, free weights, fitness classes, spa services, and more.

The hotel has it’s own Angels’ Wine Tower Bar in the lobby and the Angels’ Wine Tower Grill. The on-site Filini Restaurant offers Italian food and outdoor terrace seating in the summer, while another on-site area presents full, buffet-style breakfasts.

Additional features include dry cleaning and laundry services, on-site car rental desk, parking spaces, room service, and access to modern technology useful for business presentations and meetings.
