... and as we walk to the different sections of the Museum there are free scooters for visitors to zoom around in. We spend at least 5 hours exploring the Swiss transportation exhibits, while the kids try to fly helicopters in flight simulators, to learning about trucks, trains and buses. We finish the museum in the planetarium learning about the solar system, the kids loved it. As we leave the museum, we spot a nearby playground and guess what the sun is out, ...
... could be heard (but we didn't see the cows, and thought they might be hiding in the trees in a classic Gary Larsen "Far Side" cartoonish sort of way, and eventually stopped at the bottom station.
When we walked back to our hotel, we stopped in a "junk" shop. To most people this was junk, but I found my shopping nirvanna! This guy had wooden pipes from an old pipe organ (18CHF), wooden moulding planes (with RM stamped into them!), and best of all, ...
... white castle called Buscht. It was very pretty but it is completely empty currently. It used to be a hotel, but now it is emtpy, apparently Michael Jackson had been interested in purchasing it.
After the tour we went on the "tower walk". A wall used to line the city (to protect it as a fortess). We walked the length of the wall, saw some swiss cows, and went into two towers. We had a great view of the City from these towers.
Left hotel early to avoid traffic chaos of New Years's Day Parade - just as well because we then found Heathrow Express was not running & we had to bus it to the airport, but all ended up OK BA flight on time, then a very efficient 12 minute train ride from airport into ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Zurich Marriott Hotel Zürich
For the price and rating, its not worth it. The rooms were very ordinary and defn needs updating.
My partner and I recently spent two days at the Marriott and we were very happy with our stay. The hotel is located just off the Limmat River about 3 blocks north of the main train station. Although a bit further away than most of the hotels in the Zurich core, it still has a great location for touring the city.
Needs Updating Badly
Just spent a week in Zurich, stayed at both the Marriott and the Central Plaza Hotel. The only good things I can say about the Marriott: it has air conditioning and a convenient business center. Overall, the property needs remodelling badly. Very outdated. There are no restaurants near the hotel and the quality of the food offered by room service was about as bad as I've ever had. As for location, the Central Plaza Hotel was better - right across from the train station and across the river from a number of restaurants. If you like a contemporary decor, I would recommend the Central Plaza Hotel.
The reviews from others on tripadvisor helped me become so familiar with Zurich that I felt at home when I arrived there for the first time. Being from the U.S., it was smaller than I imagined, but words cannot do justice to its beauty. We stayed at the Marriot, which is a bit north of the city's action areas (near the Zurichee), but close enough to walk back (15-20 mins). Plenty of trams are also available till late at night. The hotel itself is great, with a fabulous gym, pool, and sauna and plenty of Swiss charm blended in with American expectations. The trip to Uetliberg, the walk on Planetenwegg, and the cable car ride back are a must - the views are breathtaking. If you have no fear of heights, go to the top of the tower on the top of Zurich near the Uetliberg train station for an "airplane" type view. Do the boat rides around Zurichee and get off at the various points to visit these quaint towns. The weather was so clear we could see the Alps! Food is expensive, but delightfully different to what you'd get anywhere else in the world. Don't forget those quais - great for romantic strolls with your loved one while watching the reflection of the moon on the Zurichee.
The best hotel ever in Europe to date as far as overall service, great location.
The Marriott Zurich, Switzerland is a beautiful hotel with great views in a terrific location. The food is excellent and the service is 5-Star. Had a more than wonderful experience staying there.
We used this hotel prior to our Switzerland tour.
Great hotel with magnificent views of the city. The location was perfect, very close to the main train station and within walking distance to town.
We fell in love with Zurich, Lucerne, Bern and Lugano.
Very satisfied with this Marriott hotel, buffett breakfast was great and service was unique.
I stayed in the Zurich Marriott for about a year during 1998-99, so I cannot comment on the current quality of the staff or furnishings.
Not up to Marriott Standards
I have stayed at this Hotel numerous times because the location is very convenient to my business activity. The general appearance and functionality of the Hotel is not up to Marriott standards. The rooms are very small, particularly the single rooms. The service is spotty.
The Hotel staff tends to be defensive when the resolution of a even minor issue is requested. They are not customer orriented and responsive as would be typical for the Marriott Hotels in general.
Overall the Hotel is ok but would not be my choice where it not for its location.
View and Service much better than the room
We had a room close to the highest floor with a view of the old city, the river and the lake. The staff, especially the concerige with really helpful. The room was small and somewhat worn but the location was great for exploring the part of town that we wanted to see and it was easy walking distance to the train station.
Wouldn't stay again
The Zurich Marriot is ok - just ok. Clean and fine but outdated and nothing special and half the hotel is under construction which they don't bother to tell you in advance. The rooms are very small even by NYC standards and my room had a funny plastic like smell that was annoying. The only goodthing is it is walking distance to the train station.
