Our flight has just changed and we have an early flight out of Zurich. Can anyone recommend an hotel near the airport?
We stayed at the Park Inn near the airport. Actually quite inexpensive. I think we paid $150. They have clean cheerful rooms and a great remote control beds. Handy shuttle to the airport too.
The Radisson Blu is right "in" the airport, and has very good rates on weekends, especially if you do a prepaid booking. Weeknights are not so good.
We actually love staying in the Altstadt of Zurich the night before flying out, but with an early flight I would take a look at the Radisson Blu. You just get up, get dressed, take the elevator down and you're ready to check in.
We got the Renaissance Hotel near AP on Priceline for 90 USD. Lovely hotel with well appointed room--king bed with lots of pillows & nice bathroom. It has a pool and is on the tram line and you get to the airport in five minutes. Would definitely stay there again.
