Elly Sanoner

For over six decades, Elly Sanoner has epitomized the history and heart of ADLER. Even now, at 93 years of age, she still embodies everything that makes a quintessential hotelier: the love of the people, the passion for aesthetics and perfection, and the willingness to work hard for it.

Traffic jam on the highway? Will we make our flight? And somewhere amidst it all, there she is. Full of energy, grace, and warmth, she makes the rounds. It matters not to whom she turns, or to whom she carefully listens, or warmly shakes hands with; where she stands or walks the Grand Dame of the ADLER is always center stage.
