Hi Mike -
Apart from the fact that Zürich is my favorite city in Switzerland (that is, if you do not consider proximity to surrounding scenic features as at Luzern), I think it is better to be close to the airport if you are leaving that evening.
In my opinion, the variety and size of the old towns in Zürich is a plus for Zürich. Basel is a city of impressive art museums, but Zürich has a few good one's too.
But, it's all personal.
