Fodor's Review

Directly on Paradeplatz, at the hub of the banking, shopping, and sightseeing districts, this is one of Zürich's 19th-century landmarks. Despite its venerable age, the hotel perennially improves itself, regularly sprucing up its rooms and amenities to maintain its conservative sleekness. The guest rooms, with gray-stone bathrooms, walk-in closets, and period furniture, typify what the hotel calls its "past-modern" decor. There are two fine restaurants—one French, one

Italian—as well as a slick café-bar.

They charge $4.50 for toll-free calls

They have a little sign in the rooms that is almost comical. It informs guests that they now have access to the "most advanced telecommunications services", i.e. you can dial the toll free numbers for your own calling cards from AT&T etc. Wow, imagine that. The bad news is that dialling any calling card service will set you back 5 Swiss Francs (approx $4.50) per call, on top of whatever you pay AT&T.
