Update on the Renovations at Baur au Lac, the Luxurious Palace Hotel in Zurich

January 21, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Baur au LacAs if you could improve upon perfection, Baur au Lac began a renovation last year to create 15 new suites out of 25 guest rooms. A founding member of Leading Hotels of the World, Baur au Lac has long been a magnet for the world's glitterati on the shores of Lake Zurich. But this 19th-century palace hotel doesn't rest on its laurels (it's a fixture on the Conde Nast Travel Gold List). Instead, Baur au Lac constantly refreshes and modernizes to stay ahead of the demands of a discriminating international clientele. Expected to be completed by this summer, the new suites are coming along nicely. In fact, the River Suite will take your breath away, a generous 100 square-meter space that has the air of a regal residence with elegant furnishings and contemporary comforts. We've also heard great things about Le Pavillon and the summer restaurant La Terrasse, opulently designed by Paris's celebrated interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, the man behind Joël Robuchon's restaurants in Paris and New York.
