Stayed here on a business trip for two nights, great location. Close to the airport, can get the free boat across to the business district (travel card provided on check in). The hotel itself has a lovely bar, restaurant, great service & high spec room. Not one area lets it down at all! I would also consider staying here for... More

Stayed 6 nights. Our party was a family of 5. Hotel was competent in every way. The pool is enclosed in winter and is good. On check in we asked about the hours of the pool because our kids were keen on using it as an activity. The staff told us the hours but also said that if we wanted... More

This is my second business trip to Geneva and unfortunately both have been in December, so not entirely ideal as far as weather goes. However that said this trip has been far more enjoyable as we have been staying at the President Wilson Hotel. The hotel is run around the lake located on the lake, and if not raining is... More

This really is as good as it gets in hotels. Public areas are refined and opulent, and the rooms are total luxury with magnificent views over the lake. I had the tasting menu in Michel Roth's Bay View restaurant and a massage in La Mer spa. Yes, it's indecently expensive......... but it really is fantastic. Stars of the show though,... More

Like other reviewers, I affirm that this is a first-rate hotel. The room was spacious, warm and cozy. The room was clean, with ample linen, bath supplies, and storage space. Room service breakfast was fulsome, with an order for one containing enough food for two. There is a covered, heated outdoor pool, which while warm enough for serious swimmers, was... More

Pleasant stay at a swiss grand hotel (SPG luxury collection) with a magnificent view over the lake. Spacious and relatively newly furnished rooms. Professional service provided by staff. Small but clean gym. Small business center with exceptional staff. Mainly Middle Eastern clients, hence restaurants cater to this client

This is a true 5 Star hotel. The location is simply terrific and is located right on the lake. The rooms are well appointed and ultra clean - but nothing exceptional. In fact I was disappointed at not having more convenient electrical outlets for all my gadgets. What impressed me the most was the attitude and helpfulness of the staff... More
