Not knowing your price range makes it difficult to give hotel recommendations. At this page http://www.zuerich.com/hotel/hotelliste.php?lg=2 you'll find a complete listing of Zurich hotels and by clicking on each hotel name, a description. Reservations can be made through the Zurich Tourism office or use Google to find the hotels' web sites and contact the hotels directly.
Depending upon your budget and the length of your stay, you might want to consider a B&B. Here's a possibility http://www.bnb.ch/index.php?p=page&id=388 and there are several others on the site (click on Zurich for the list): http://www.bnb.ch/index.php?p=carte&c=a2
Zurich is a very expensive city. The official currency is the Swiss Franc. One USD is equivalent to 1.15 CHF (wholesale rate today).
You'll find info about restaurants in our travelogues:
