Near everything, this late-19th-century hotel reopened in spring 2004 under new, family management after a total overhaul, blessed by Relais & Chateaux. All 22 suites are bigger than many an apartment dweller's entire home (well, in Manhattan anyway) and are coolly functional in slick neutrals with custom everything and a distinctly 21st-century aura. The restaurant and bistro are both way better than they needed to be.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
This family-run 22-suite gem in a stunningly renovated Belle Epoque building on a quiet street in central Zurich breathes intelligent luxury. Upon arrival, you are received by a young, earnest, multilingual staff at an antique desk; treated to champagne, coffee, or tea; and swiftly escorted to a handsomely decorated suite, which includes a spacious living room with dining area, a whirlpool tub, and a bedroom with mountainous goosedown duvets. Two flat-screen TVs, potted orchids, contemporary Italian furniture, antiques, and a soothing backdrop of celadon, mocha, powder blue, and vanilla make this a homey, happy place to roost. The only shortcoming is literally so: The beds are stubby, so your feet will dangle if you're taller than six feet.—2005 Hot List

When to go: Zurich is one of the world's loveliest winter destinations.

Which room to book: Garden-view suites are quietest; 4C has a corner cupola and offers a glimpse of Lake Zurich

Amenities: Bar/lounge, 24-hour Room Service, Wheelchair-accessible
