After a night of experiencing Zurich’s grime, I left the Sheraton and went to the Kameha Grand which is part of the Autograph Collection. Until this point, I had only stayed at one other Autograph hotel, the Cosmo in Vegas.
The hotel is nowhere near the city center. I only picked it because it was the nicest and best points redemption.
LIFE IS GRAND
I arrived at the hotel to see that slogan plastered on the outside of the hotel in big capital letters. Then I saw a Rolls Royce. What was this place, I wondered.
The man at the front desk had a big grin on his face when I was checking in. What was he up to, I wondered. While he sorted out my room, I took photos of the lobby.
We Have Liftoff.
I boarded the elevator and arrived at my floor. Here’s what I found:
To the Moon
“You’ve been upgraded,” is a line I’ve become accustomed to hearing. I opened the door to find a gigantic room.
What I did not expect to find was that I blasted off from earth and now was in orbit. It was incredible. Everything in the room was out of this planet, from the ceiling to the carpet to the controls.
Toilets Are the Same in Space
Well, almost everything was from a different galaxy. The bathroom was what you would expect to find on planet earth. The closet, though bigger than anyone would need for one night, was also normal.
Over the Moon
Now I know why the front desk was laughing. I was laughing too. The bedroom was decorated all in white and had a photo of what I imagined to be my friends and I going on a spacewalk.
The bedroom was impressive but the living room was the best.
What’s a space suite without space art?
Space Force USA! USA!
There’s a guestbook for those who were lucky enough to go to space.
Read all about it.
Back to Planet Earth
To find my balance, I went down to the restaurant for a drink.
One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Marriott
I’ve stayed at well over a dozen Marriott brands. Many provide the typical hotel experience. The Autograph Collection and this hotel, in particular, does not do that. Besides the space suite, there are other extraordinary hotel experiences.
Life is grand indeed!
