Presidential salute to modern five-star hotel on Lake Geneva

This modern five-star property across Quai Wilson from Lake Geneva ranks among the city's top hotels. Renovations in 2009 and 2010 created eye-catching contemporary interiors, from the sleek gallery housing 17th-century Gobelin tapestries to the pure white Zen-like spa. The 180 rooms and 48 suites feature handsome modern décor and such luxury amenities as Ex Voto toiletries and Bang & Olufsen flat-screen televisions. Prestige lake view rooms and most suites offer stunning views of Lake Geneva. Most top tourist sites sit within a 20-minute walk.

Highlights

  • Modern five-star property on Lake Geneva among the city's top hotels
  • Stunning Lake Geneva views from prestige lakeview rooms and most of the suites  

Rooms

The 180 rooms (322 square feet) and 48 suites (484-1,883 square feet) were renovated in 2009 and 2010 and feature such luxury amenities as a Nespresso machine, free Wi-Fi, Bang & Olufsen flat-screen TV and DVD player, and Ex Voto toiletries in the marble bathroom. The handsome contemporary décor features a mix of bold browns, blacks and grays. Most -- but not all -- of the suites have stunning views of Lake Geneva, as do the prestige lake view rooms. 

Dining

L'Arabesque serves such succulent Lebanese fare as spit-roasted lamb and veal with sesame cream. The angular mirrored wall in the modern Glow "bar + art" venue reflects the lake outside and immense fireplace inside. This contemporary lounge hosts an after-hours DJ party on Thursday nights. The adjacent Glowing Salon hosts the morning breakfast buffet.

Recreation

Guests can work out in the 24-hour fitness center or relax with a massage in the pure white Zen-like spa. The saltwater outdoor swimming pool is open May to September.

Nice hotel but not worth the price

The rooms were nice but the housekeeping service wasn't great. I called them back to clean the bathtub and still needed to clean it myself after the second visit. The tub sparkled after I cleaned it with a little shampoo. It's not clear what was being done by housekeeping. The facilities were terrific. I used the spa, pool and fitness facility. Each was maintained very well. The restaurant was very good but overpriced. The breakfast buffet was 47 Swiss francs. I ate there once but I don't think that most weight-conscious people would eat enough for breakfast to be worth that price. The location was perfect, 5-10 minutes from the city center and overlooking Lake Geneva. The staff was very friendly and tried to be helpful but the concierge couldn't seem to get anything right except restaurant recommendations. For the bus tour to Lausanne and Montreaux, they sent us to the airport when we only needed to walk 5-10 minutes to the bus station located in the city center. (I was reimbursed for the taxi when I informed the concierge of the error). For the tour to Chamonix and Mont Blanc, the concierge told us to pay for the bus trip but that tickets for the activities would be purchased from the tour guide. We were the only people on the tour whose hotel had not made complete arrangements, including activity tickets. The tour guide reluctantly assisted us with purchasing the necessary tickets in Chamonix. I will try another five star hotel when I return to Geneva.
