40 years of hospitality at Hilton Zurich Airport


Hilton Zurich Airport is celebrating 40 years of hospitality with a range of special offers for its guests. The hotel, featuring 171 guest rooms, opened in 1971 as the very first airport hotel in Zurich.


Since its opening, the hotel has been a pioneer in terms of style and elegance as well as state-of-the-art design and cosmopolitan flair. A special photo collage documenting the history of Hilton Zurich Airport will be exhibited in the lobby, and some of the long term employees are eager to share their interesting and funny stories dating back four decades with guests. Throughout 2011, the hotel’s 40th anniversary will be commemorated as it offers guests multiple surprises and packages.


From a culinary angle, the hotel’s restaurant has shown diners various faces over the past 40 years. It opened as a Swiss Taverna and was transformed into an American Grill Room until it started welcoming guests in its current form as the Market Place Restaurant with its buffet specialities, theme buffets, show kitchen and many seasonal à-la-carte dishes. The hotel’s delicious Sunday Hilton Brunch has been a tradition since day one and is still very popular amongst hotel residents and local guests today. To celebrate the anniversary, the hotel’s restaurant is offering a retro menu available from 40 Swiss Francs and special 1970s themed drinks will be mixed in the lobby bar.


In addition, Hilton Zurich Airport is launching a special “40% discount for 40 Years of Hospitality” package, available from CHF266.40 per room, per night, including a retro dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. Additionally, breakfast and a welcome drink are included on arrival.


As a sparkling highlight to the celebrations, a charity ball, in cooperation with the FIS (International Ski Federation) will be held in October 2011. The proceeds of which will be donated to the Hilton in the Community Foundation which also supports FIS’s charity of choice Right To Play (
