"McHotels" to open in Switzerland next year

Fast food giant McDonald's has announced it wants to enter the hotel sector, and is planning to open two Golden Arch Hotels in Switzerland in 2001.

The corporation said it is aiming to create four-star accommodation, with rooms for about SFr178 per night. It plans to cater to business professionals during the week and families and young adults on weekends.

The first of the hotels is slated to open in the spring near Zurich airport. It is designed to have 211 rooms, which are expected to have Internet access.

McDonald's first entered the Swiss fast food market in 1976, and now has 116 branches across the country.
