Unwind at their New York-inspired bar featuring rare whiskeys and smoker’s lounge with premium cigars before retiring to your room with contemporary decor, pillowtop beds, free high-speed Wi-Fi and flat-panel TVs.

2. Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel

Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel is located in the heart of Downtown Zurich West.

Whether you are traveling to Zurich on business or for leisure, the hotel offers good value accommodation with complimentary Internet. The location is some way out of town, up the river in the wrong direction from the Zurich Marriott Hotel, making the Zurich Marriott Hotel a better choice if you are sightseeing.

Spacious hotel rooms and suites are comfortably equipped and offer panoramic views. The Executive club lounge offers complimentary food and beverages and the hotel offers fitness, sauna, and steam bath area.

Enjoy tasty dishes at the EQUINOX Grill Restaurant or sit back and relax in their LUCID Bar & Lounge and savor a cocktail, drink, or snack. The “Upperdeck” is one of the highest and most exclusive event locations in Zurich, located on the 15th floor overlooking Zurich’s skyline.

There are more Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Zurich including the Kameha Grand Zurich, Autograph Collection but there is no club lounge in this hotel. The Sheraton Neues Schloss is another Marriott Bonvoy in Zurich with no club lounge.

While both these properties have club lounges, our favorite hotels in Zurich are the Park Hyatt which is stylish and chic, and the Atlantis Giardino which is pictured above and is the best Marriott Bonvoy hotel in Zurich.

Crowne Plaza Geneva is elegant superior 4-star hotel with 366 rooms, a contemporary design and a relaxing atmosphere. It looks to be the only hotel in Geneva with a club lounge.

Located near the airport and the Palexpo conference and exhibition center, the hotel not exactly ideal for walking around Geneva, but you are able to get to the city center in only fifteen minutes if you take public transport, so it is a good-value base for Geneva.

There is a fairly good club lounge at this Crowne Plaza in Geneva, given that this is only a four-star hotel, just manage your expectations as this hotel is functional rather than ultra-luxurious.
