I am thinking about making my first trip to BASELWORLD this April. I can plan a business trip to the New York/New Jersey area, take a Thursday night flight direct to Zurich, and make a weekend of it. I have never been to Switzerland, and would rather not stay at the Hilton or Marriott (my normal hotels in the USA). Any recommendations where I can stay in Zurich to get the feel for the city and be near the train station? I am staying in Zurich because Basel is booked solid, and I can get a great fare to Zurich. I will take the train to Basel.
Thanks, worldly ones!
