The Best of Both Worlds
The rooms' refined eclectic style is characterized by timeless design. Exquisite art deco artifacts skillfully contrast with French period furniture and modern elements using only the highest quality materials. With a masterful eye for design, the interior designer Frédéric d’Haufayt has given this suite an elegance all its own. Great emphasis was laid on spaciousness and all furniture and lighting features are custom-made in France, Belgium, England, and Germany. Each item was hand-selected with an unfailing sense of style. While offering the ultimate in comfort, luxury, and privacy, the suite has been equipped with every, yet hardly noticeable technical refinement. The large, luxuriously appointed marble bathroom with separate shower and toilet, heated floor and daylight match up to the highest demands of comfort, design, and equipment.
Suite Talk Q&A
- What is a typical day in the life of a suite? As soon as a guest leaves me, I feel a little bit sad, as I got used to their voice, steps, and scent. One day my guest is on a business trip and I barely see them, and right after I might have a big family staying with me. My duty is to make everyone feel at home. After check-out, I am always confused and do not really know what is coming next, but luckily I have the most dedicated staff on earth, which newly decorates me and aligns everything! They pamper me! No detail is too small. Thanks to them, I get back on my feet quite quickly and feel fresh and happy to welcome my next guest.
- What was your favorite feedback or comment received from past guests? My favorite feedback until now has been that I have a most wonderful view of the private park, lake, Alps, and canal. As my name indicates, I am located in one of the corners and that is why you can enjoy breathtaking views. Personally, I would say I have the best view in the entire Baur au Lac. You can compare it to have the best seats in the theater.
- What would be your advice for a first-time guest visiting? Zurich is a city which is rich in cultural highlights. It is one of the leading art trading cities in the world with more than 50 museums and over 100 galleries. The Opera House, Tonhalle Orchestra (concert hall orchestra), as well as the Schauspielhaus Zurich (municipal theater), provide a culture of the highest standards. If you have the chance, do not miss a visit to at least one of them during your stay.
All major cultural and tourist attractions are within walking distance from the Baur au Lac. The beautiful park along the lake and Zurich's old town are also within easy walking distance and provide charming routes for joggers and walkers. Furthermore, the hotel is just a stone's throw from the Bahnhofstrasse, one of the world’s most famous luxury shopping streets. There is a little bit for everyone in Zurich. Last but not least, my goal as a suite is to complement your stay with the highest comfort, whether you come for business or leisure.
