Following is my itinerary:
24th May: Arriving from Paris into Zurich
25th May
26th May
27th May
28th May
29th May: Leaving for Venice in morning
So now based on this, the places I intend to visit are:
Mount Pilatus
Mount Titlis

(a) I need help to learn about any other scenic places that I can cover during my stay here in Switzerland as per the above plan?
(b) If so, how can I plan that along with the above 3 places in terms of how much time it goes into visiting these places (like 1 whole day for jungfrau, or half a day for Pilatus etc ...)?
(c) Most important of all, Hotel Stays ! I have no idea about which hotels would be good for the stay and in which places - Zurich / Lucerne / Interlaken ...?
Can anyone recommend certain hotel names based on their reviews / experiences ?

Basically my confusion lies in the aspect as to :
1. Whether coming into Zurich from Paris, I should make Zurich my main stay for all 5 nights, and make day trips to all these places that I mention above?
2. Or should I split my stay into 3 + 2 nights, and if so, what would be most convenient:
2a. 3 Zurich + 2 Lucerne
2b. 3 Zurich + 2 Interlaken
2c. 3 Lucerne + 2 Interlaken or vice versa?
To be true am getting a bit paranoid now about the stay especially as to which hotels and places would be good for me to stay and make these day trips?

Hi Sunil,

As for the hotels: it depends on your budget and location preferences (quiet and/or close to the rail station for example). This page lists hotels that are located centrally in Interlaken, Zurich and some other towns. In Lucerne, I know about the Hotel Etap Luzern City, which is about 10 minutes from the rail station and relatively cheap. I don't know it from personal experience. In general: is a good hotel site we work with.

Your other questions have been addressed in the other topics you posted, right? (this one and this one). For further ideas, please take a look at the day trips suggestions for the Bernese Oberland.
