For event planners looking for a hotel in Switzerland with excellent service, culinary highlights, and good value for the money, the Swiss-owned and operated Sorell Hotels, represented by micebook partner Global Hospitality Services (GHS), are the perfect choice. Here we check out three options in Zurich, Schaffhausen and Basel…
Sorell Hotel Zürichberg
Located high above the rooftops of central Zurich in the Fluntern district, Sorell Hotel Zürichberg boasts stunning views over the city of Zurich and Lake Zurich. Despite the hotel’s quiet location in natural surroundings, Sorell Hotel Zürichberg is just ten minutes from the city centre.
The property offers 66 rooms in four different categories: Standard, Business, Superior and Deluxe, and the newly renovated Restaurant Zürichberg provides all day dining in stylish surrounds with an open plan kitchen. For meeting and events groups, five large rooms as well as the noble art nouveau Kursaal (Spa Hall) can cater for a variety of formats from business meetings and conferences to receptions and celebrations.
Sorell Hotel Rüden
Located in a guild house from the 14th and 15th centuries, Sorell Hotel Rüden in Schaffhausen combines stucco ceilings and parquet floors with modern furnishings to provide a unique backdrop for creative meetings and incentives.
The 30-room boutique is located directly in the pedestrian zone of the picturesque old town of Schaffhouse, surrounded by shops, restaurants, bars and cinemas, making it an ideal base for exploring. Event spaces include the Zunftsaal (Guild Hall) – the jewel in the hotel’s crown – suitable for classical concerts and meetings for up to 80 people. The Lounge is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine by the open fire after a busy day of meetings or exploring.
Sorell Hotel Merian
The only four-star hotel directly on the Rhine, Sorell Hotel Merian offers 63 rooms and suites with views of the river and the horizon of Basel. Meeting planners will find four banqueting halls and seminar rooms that can be individually customised to cater for a range of group sizes and events.
The highlight is the splendid Merian Hall, a pearl of late-Biedermeier architecture, which is also known as “Kleinbasel region’s VIP stand on the Rhine”. Meanwhile, the Brasserie Café Spitz with its view of the Rhine impresses with seasonal dishes and exclusive fish cuisine.
