- Renaissance Hotels today welcomes the newest gem in its global portfolio, the 300-room Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel under a franchise agreement with SV Group.

Located in the spectacular new Mobimo Tower in Zurich West, one of Zurich’s most fashionable neighborhoods, the Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel is housed in a 24-story tower offering panoramic views of Zurich. The hotel is the third Renaissance Hotel in Switzerland, following the recent opening of the Renaissance Lucerne Hotel.

On hand for the opening festivities, Amy McPherson, president and managing director of Marriott International in Europe said, “This hotel embodies the very best of the Renaissance Hotels brand experience, offering cutting edge design and a truly authentic travel experience in Zurich. As we expand the Renaissance Hotels brand throughout Europe, it is exciting to see our hotels embrace the history and local culture of its destination, pulling through what makes each location special and unique.”

The Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel was designed by Claudio Carbone and the design offers nods to its locale in district five with unique graffiti-inspired artwork leading guests through the history of the Zurich West and its industrial roots.  Offering sweeping views of Zurich, each guestroom features the best in Swiss craftsmanship including warm oak furnishings and plush bedding.

The hotel’s Equinox Restaurant is a modern steakhouse offering expertly prepared, classic steakhouse fare. For a more casual experience, guests can choose from either Lucid, the hotel’s American-style bar or Vivid, a unique tapas-style bar. To work up a sweat after indulging, the 15th floor of the hotel boasts a state-of-the art fitness center and wellness zone offers sweeping views of Zurich.

For social events and meetings, the hotel boasts over 1000 square meters of meeting space, including a terrace lounge.
