It might have gotten a fresh modern remake, but the Dolder Grand Hotel still epitomizes the old-fashioned style and glamour. In the lobby, you’ll find exactly what you expected from this imposing building: beautiful interiors where no marble, gold, and crystal have been spared in creating a sense of luxury. While the ultramodern bar could easily be transported to a chic urban hotel, the Dolder Grand also celebrates high-end traditions like weekly live jazz concerts and literary readings.
Located on a hill just outside Zurich, the hotel strikes a perfect balance between city and nature. With a complimentary shuttle service, Zurich can be reached within minutes. At the same time, you get to enjoy the peace and quiet of the surrounding forests and incredible views from the hilltop. The panoramic sun terrace is the perfect spot for al fresco dining in summer, while the 4000m2 spa offers this beautiful backdrop all year long.
The standard rooms are spacious, bright, and discreetly luxurious. With the stunning views over the lake, Alps, and the city, it is well worth it to splurge for a balcony room. The real holiday indulgence, however, starts with the suites. A roof terrace, whirlpool bath, private sauna, and individual butler service are just some of the perks that can come with the most expensive Dolder Grand rooms. The selection is surprisingly varied, from the Suites Deluxe restored to their original state over one hundred years ago to Suite 100 styled like a 60s rock star’s mansion. Luxury comes in many shapes and forms, and that’s certainly true at the Dolder Grand.
