Located in the city`s prestigious financial and commercial district, across from the Zurich Congress Centre and just steps from the fashionable Bahnhofstrasse.
Park Hyatt hotels are upmarket, luxury hotels that cater to the individual traveller seeking the highest level of personalised service and luxury. Intimate and residential in style, Park Hyatts are further distinguished by prime locations, exceptional interior design and works of art.

The Zurich-based firm of Meili & Peter Architekten will meld transparent elements like glass with external greenery and an abundance of natural light creating a fusion of indoor and outdoor, urban and natural. Landscape consultants, Kienast Vogt Partner, will be responsible for taking the outdoors into the building and ensuring a strong commitment to ecology and conservation issues.
