The IntercityHotel Zurich Airport is scheduled to open in 2020 as the brand's first venture in Switzerland, located at Rümlang Station right next to the airport grounds.

Like all the brand's new hotels, its interior design concept will bear the signature of the Italian architect Matteo Thun.

The new IntercityHotel Zurich Airport will have around 260 rooms, a restaurant and a bar, and a conference area of 450 square meters (4,844 square feet). There will also be a spa and gym area, and 180 on-site parking spaces.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

IntercityHotel has now moved to its fourth design generation, and the Italian architect Matteo Thun is responsible for creating the hotel's look and feel. Technology will also be in place in Zurich in the form of the IntercityHotel App, allowing check in and check out, as well as opening of the door to the rooms via smartphone.

The project was designed by the Küssnacht-based architectural firm Suter+Renner AG. The investor and developer is Necron AG of Zug, with which a lease agreement for the hotel has been concluded.

When it opens, IntercityHotel Zurich Airport will be located near Rümlang station, not far from the A1 motorway and the city center.

With an estimated 400,000 inhabitants, Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland.
