Warhol Wel­come

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life -

With its fairy-tale spires, the Dolder Grand could have stayed as a tra­di­tional his­toric prop­erty, if not for the four-year ren­o­va­tion that saw the ad­di­tion of two wings de­signed by Foster & Part­ners, and a part­ner­ship with Ga­lerie Gmurzyn­ska that saw mod­ern art by the likes of Keith Har­ing and Takashi Mu­rakami spread around the 178-room icon. Guests check­ing in now do so un­der Andy Warhol’s 11-me­tre mas­ter­piece Big Ret­ro­spec­tive Paint­ing, while works by Dalí, Richter and Pis­sarro com­ple­ment chef Heiko Nieder’s mod­ern take on Euro­pean cui­sine in The Restau­rant, its two-miche­lin-starred din­ing room. Suites have been in­spired by ev­ery­one from the Rolling Stones to Her­bert von Kara­jan, and it’s hard to beat the ho­tel’s en­vi­able po­si­tion over­look­ing Lake Zurich and the huge spa of­fer­ing or­ganic fa­cials and bam­boo shi­atsu. But if you do feel like ven­tur­ing out, the ef­f­i­cent concierge will ar­range ev­ery lit­tle thing. All very Swiss. the­do­ld­er­grand.com
