Austria, Germany & Switzerland

Park Hyatt Zurich makes for a good stopover
February 2020 1561

Nestled in the heart of the city’s bustling financial and commercial district, the 138-key Park Hyatt Zurich is surrounded by Switzerland’s major financial houses yet only minutes away from the boutiques of Bahnhofstrasse, Lake Zurich and the beautiful Old Town (Altstadt).

Park Hyatt hotels are luxury boutique hotels that are distinguished by their prime locations, exceptional interior design and works of art. Park Hyatt Zurich is no exception and bears the hallmarks of Swiss quality combined with the imaginative flair and taste that Jan Clausen and his team from Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) has brought to this project. 

Long known only for its banking and financial institution, Zurich is fast becoming a tourist destination in its own right. Unspoilt by the ravages of 1960’s architecture, Zurich sits perfectly within the natural beauty of the lakeside scenery and snow-capped mountains, two-hours drive away from St. Moritz.

Stephen Ansell, the newly appointed general manager of the property says Zurich is a perfect stopover point enroute to St. Moritz, having been there himself a few weeks ago.

Also operating simultaneously as area vice-president South Eastern Europe, Ansell started his Hyatt career at Hyatt Regency Riyadh in 1996. From 2000 to 2003, Ansell was resident manager at Hyatt Regency Istanbul and as such, understands the Middle East market quite well and explains to TTN that the Middle East remains one of the key feeder markets for the Zurich property.

Park Hyatt Zurich is perfect for shopping opportunities, an extended stopover to skiing in the Swiss Alps, a leisurely fishing expedition on a luxury yacht or a cheesemaking adventure with a specialist fromager. They even ship you the cheese when it’s set and ready.
