Rated 5 out of 5 by Apecalvin Attentive service
The Neues Schloss definitely has the feel of a small family-run hotel, especially when it comes to the attentive service. We arrived early, at 9:30am, and were told our room wasn't ready and we were offered breakfast. After that, we left our bags with concierge and went about our day. We returned in the late afternoon, to find that our bags were already in our room as we were given our key. Our suite, was cosy (that is, not very big), but it was well maintained, had great light-flow, and a lovely terrace, which made all the difference!
It would be perfect if it had an executive lounge. And unfortunately for us, rates were exorbitant for the dates we stayed. Ultimately, we chose it for its proximity to the city centre.
Special mention must be made of two staff members, who have made our stay particularly memorable: Anina, from Front Desk, and Charlotte, from the café. Anina was most helpful with advice about transportation to restaurants, while Charlotte, whom we had the pleasure of meeting every morning at breakfast, was warm and cheerful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vincos Solid But Oh So Simple
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Nothing terribly wrong with this place (except WiFi, see below) but - except for very attentive service - also very little to find memorable. I was told by a member of staff that this is the smallest Sheraton in the network and it showed - it was pared down of all the usual bells and whistles - tiny Reception, virtually no lobby to speak of, narrow hallways, small rooms.
SPG RECOGNITION: Great. Upgrade to Junior Suite and lovely in-room amenity. No Club Lounge but Buffet Breakfast offered on a complimentary basis in the ground-floor Jardin de Suisse Restaurant.
THE ROOM: A nicely furnished Junior Suite but smaller than a standard double in most Sheraton properties. Miniscule bathroom with a single tiny sink.
LOCATION: In the central business district but not premium. Tram stops nearby connect to the station.
EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS: As well as my preferred sparkling mineral water and a lovely bottle of Prosecco, there was a menu card inviting me to order one of three great snack options at my leisure. This came in very handy and was a wonderful green garlic terrine and smoked salmon with crusty bread.
DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS: For a hotel which I would imagine deals almost exclusively with business people, it is hard to believe there is no WiFi available in the rooms! As a Platinum, I was invited to use the cable but IT DID NOT WORK. I even changed rooms in the urgency to get some work done and it still didn’t work. The very kind reception clerk finally offered my a voucher to use on the independent WiFi provider available in the rooms but (although she said it was for 3 hours) it had only 30 minutes validity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by traveller1397 Overall excellent service and hotel
We stayed several nights and thoroughly enjoyed this lovely, sophisticated hotel matched by equally lovely and sophisticated staff. The rooms are spacious, high tech and the beds very comfortable. The breakfast is wonderful as is the lovely lady assisting in the dining room. The hotel is very close to the lake in a quiet street. The hotel treats SPG guests above expectations and is generous in providing free intenet in the foyer to all guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WorldTraveler Excellent Service in Lovely Location
I have only been able to stay once, but it was probably my favorite Sheraton in Europe. According to the front desk it is the smallest Sheraton in the world. It feels like a boutique hotel. The service was wonderful, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to a large room that was very tastefully decorated. The location is very central.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BKB33 Great service, very nice hotel
Wonderful staff - from a very warm welcome at reception to the staff at the restaurant and the bar. The food at the restaurant was the best I've had at a Sheraton anywheres. Great location with short walk to Lake and shopping area
Only drawback was cost, but I suspect that it may have been reasonable for Zurich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RafKam Small Is Beautiful
I recently had the pleasure of speniding a single night here, and it was enough to convince me this is probably the best Sheraton ever. It is a small boutique hotel, with small but very comfortable rooms, high quality fixtures as you would expect of any good place in Switzerland.
The location is excellent for business or leisure, being a couple of blocks from the lake and a 15 minute stroll to Paradeplatz. Service is faultless. As a Platinum I got upgraded to a larger room, given a welcome drink at the bar, a choice of snacks delivered via room service, free breakfast in addition to the amenity points.
My only (small) negative comments were the breakfast is nothing to write home about, and given the very high price I would not have opted to take it, and the fact that in room wireless internet is not complimentary for Platinums (although free for everyone at the lobby). These are very minor complaints considering how overwhelmingly nice my stay has been, and I will definitely stay here again.

I was very happy with the Hotel Sheraton Zuerich Neues Schloss. The staff was extremely accommodating helpful, and extremely efficient and friendly. The room perfect, the ambience superb. I would definitely come back and recommend this hotel to my friends.
