Trains to Zürich leave about every 10 minutes during peak periods and the travel time is about 10 minutes. From Zürich Hauptbahnhof you can then walk or take a tram to your hotel.
Alternatively, to get from Zürich Airport to the ETH or hotels close by you can take the tram number 10. This takes approximately 30 minutes.
You can also take a taxi (about CHF 100) to the city center, which might take longer than public transport as the traffic to and from airport is usually subject to congestion.
