hotel suggestions in Zurich -

this is for a honeymoon for my daughter. rates up to $250 - they would love a pool and a hot tub if possible... may be that they find that elsewhere and not in the city.

all and any advice would be greatly appreciated

don't bother with Zurich. Instead jump on the train to Lucerne...MUCH nicer for tourists/honeymooners than Zurich.

I know they like cities... still think Lucerne and a train up for the day?

Asked on another forum topic and asking here - hotel advice for Lucerne?

jp,

For a hotel in Lucerne, you might have a look at http://www.sternluzern.ch/en

It's an easy walk from there to the river or the station, although with luggage I'd probably take a Taxi. I don't recall them having a pool and hot tub though.

I absolutely agree about Luzern. Lake steamers dock next to the station, mountains nearby, fabulous lake, beautiful town.

Why did they pick Zürich? It is not a city that has ever done anything for me.

For a pool and hot tub at a hotel the quaint old hotel will have to go, a modern soulless high rise will have to replace it and the budget will have to go up, way up.

For God sake don't leave honeymooners in Zurich :(

Appenzell for beautiful, wide-open country. Luzern for a little town/city surrounded by mountains and a huge lake.

Zurich only if they are into tall buildings and NYC atmosphere versus lush green hills and white-topped mountains.

Yes, we have headed all the advice - They do love NYC - but - will be staying in Lucerne. If they feel like they want to see Zurich, they will do a train trip there.

We are looking for advice on Lucerne hotels.

They have booked spa in Montreaus and so the other hotels won't need to have pool and hot tub. They'd like a nice, small B&B or independent hotel. Not a chain hotel.

Would love some suggestions.
Thank you
