Mandarin Oriental Unveils Iconic Savoy Property in Zurich

Mandarin Oriental proudly introduces its third property in Switzerland, the iconic Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich, offering its renowned hospitality in the heart of the country’s largest city. Nestled on the famed Paradeplatz, the hotel stands just steps away from the prestigious Bahnhofstrasse, a historic old town, and the charming promenade leading to Lake Zurich.

The story of Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich dates back to Christmas Eve in 1838 when Johannes Baur, a young baker from Vorarlberg in Austria, founded the city’s first grand hotel, the Hotel Baur. Exactly 185 years later, this historic icon is reborn in the days just before Christmas, opening its doors to international travelers and the local community after an extensive renovation.

To commemorate the spirit of Christmas and honor the hotel’s original opening date, Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich has collaborated with legendary luxury jeweler Harry Winston to create stunning Christmas trees. Adorning the hotel’s lobby, restaurants, and signature suites, these trees are beautifully decorated in Harry Winston’s signature blue and gold, adding a festive sparkle to the season.

Renowned Paris-based interior designer Tristan Auer has reimagined Mandarin Oriental Savoy, seamlessly blending historical details with contemporary style. The hotel maximizes its extraordinary views over the city’s landmarks, offering guest rooms and suites designed for both aesthetics and functionality. Many of the 44 rooms and 36 suites boast spacious terraces and private rooftops, providing intimate sanctuaries inspired by the colors of the city and Zurich’s modern art scene.

With four distinct restaurant and bar concepts overseen by Executive Chef Benjamin Halat, guests can embark on a culinary journey through international flavors. The Savoy Brasserie & Bar, ORSINI, Mandarin Lounge, and the upcoming 1838 rooftop bar offer diverse dining experiences, from French-inspired all-day dining to fine-dining Italian cuisine.

Mandarin Oriental Savoy, Zurich, with its prime city center location and over 700 sqm of meeting and event space, is an ideal destination for special occasions, including weddings, parties, celebrations, and corporate functions. The hotel’s rich history has hosted many famous names, including Franz Liszt during the Beethoven Festival in 1845 and Charles Dickens, the author of “A Christmas Carol,” in the 19th century.
