Concierge.com's insider take:

In the financial district near the main shopping boulevard, Bahnhofstrasse, on the site of a former parking garage, stands this 142-room deluxe number. It opened in 2004 and was the first newly built five-star in Zurich in three decades. The place has all the Park Hyatt signature elements: big rooms with tan-taupe color schemes and lots of timber, walk-in closets, vast floor-to-ceiling windows, flattering lighting on dimmers, and every comfort, from desks with ergonomic chairs, broadband access, and dual voltage points to Bang & Olufsen multichannel satellite TV with DVD and CD. Oversized bathrooms have deep soaking tubs, separate showers, and unusual Blaise Mautin products. There's a fitness center, two restaurants—one fancy, the other fancier—and a bar-lounge, all hung with color-rich abstract modern canvases. There's really nothing you can say against it—if a modern, ultracomfortable, not awfully personal hotel is your bag, this is going to hit the sweet spot.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Overall Score: 90.4
  • Design: 88.0
  • Food: 85.7
  • Location: 92.0
  • Rooms: 92.0
  • Service: 94.0
The "young and driven" staff offer "attentive and professional" service at this 2004 property that's a "stone's throw" from Lake Zurich and Bahnhofstrasse shops. Rooms' "refreshing design represents modern luxury" with a Zen-like neutral palette and Italian linens. Parkhuus emphasizes seasonal ingredients in its pan-European fare and maintains an "impressive wine list"—even "locals love to come here."

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Created from a former parking garage, the 142-room Park Hyatt gives its plush international brand of luxury an edge with pedigreed contemporary art. Rooms are shrewdly designed, with peek-a-boo wooden shutters between bedroom and bath, huge Bang & Olufsen TVs, CD/ DVD players, and wickedly comfortable beds with fluffy duvets. Noteworthy amenities include Onyx, a groovy lounge that slings perfectly mixed oversized cocktails; the Parkhaus, an open-kitchen restaurant with an easy-to-love grill menu; and a well-equipped health club with a sauna and a steam room. In the could-do-better department, the service is impersonal and the place is surprisingly noisy—service trolleys rattle down the halls and the pipes announce themselves.—2005 Hot List
