Given its close proximity to the opera and the shores of Lake Zurich, this hotel is an excellent value; it's a favorite of in-the-know business travelers—and opera singers. The pink facade of the 1930s townhouse it's in belies a radically modern interior of minimalist white walls, varnished oak floors, trendy furniture, and works by young local artists. The popular bar contains an excellent selection of wines, and enhances the generally hip vibe.
