The Dolder manages to be ultra modern and classically European at the same time. Make a point of booking one of the Dolder Grand's four luxury suites, each one individually inspired by illustrious former guests. A suggestion? Stay in the Carezza Suite, inspired by Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti. The floor-to-ceiling windows and sculpturally inspired fittings and furnishings feel like Giacometti himself had a hand in their creation.
