The Dolder Grand
The Dolder Grand sits amidst the breath-taking scenery of Zurich and encapsulates Swiss living bordering the city scene and contrasting height of the Alps in a unique hedonistic environment.
The decadent hotel features 175 elegantly designed rooms and hotels and underwent the addition of architectural accoutrements between 2004 and 2008 under the lead of London-based Foster + Partners. The hotel defies an enriched way of life and is best known for its well-distinguished collection of more than 100 works of art.
Originally opened in 1899, The Dolder Grand has seen the addition of two new wings since its renovation and reopening – The Spa Wing spanning over 4,000 square metres and The Golf Wing. As part of the revamp, prestigious artworks from iconic artisans now grace the public areas and rooms of the hotel.
Perhaps the most distinctive is the legendary Big Retrospective Painting by Andy Warhol which takes pride of place at the reception. Guests at the hotel are invited to explore the collection via an iPad application which guides users through the artworks in the communal wings of the iconic building.
The state-of-the-art spa welcomes spa guests with Le Monde by Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely while Salvador Dali’s Femmes métamorphosées –Les sept arts acts a focal point for diners as they approach the two Michelin starred restaurant.
With a prominent guestbook of film stars, musicians and politicians over the years, The Dolder Grand carries a history of stories to tell as it continues the latest chapter in its journey of iconography.
