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

The hotel is located just in front of Lake Geneva which was lovely. Everything about it was clean and well presented - and already had Xmas decorations up! The hotel lobby and lounge areas have come straight from 1970s glamour / disco but all in all no complaints. The staff were very helpful and friendly at all times. The room... More

Having two big events in Geneva where I knew I would be drinking quite a bit, I decided to stay over in stead of driving home. As one of the events was hosted at the President Wilson, my choice was simple. The President Wilson has the name of being the best hotel in town and definitely is home to the... More

The boiler broke and there was NO hot water from early morning till about 2:00 in the afternoon. It would have been nice if management would have put a notice in the gym so that before people went to the gym and got sweaty they knew there was no hot water to take a shower. For such a major inconvenience,... More

We spent one night in Geneva on our way to Zermatt and stayed at the Hotel President Wilson. When we arrived (before check-in) the staff told us our room was not ready but they would take our luggage and call us. We strolled around the lake and returned to be escorted to penthouse room. The service-front desk, concierge and bar... More

Stayed here on a recent Thu night (8am-5am), when flying out of Geneva. Location is reasonably close to train station. I walked with my roller bag. They provide you a free bus pass for Geneva as well. Small enough town to walk all over though. Hotel was nice, rooms well stocked and clean. LOTS of TV channels...though I hope you... More

This was one of my favourite places to go to when being on business in Geneva by myself in August. Lovely location by the lake, with outdoor seating at the terrace, warm in August, and healthy food options. I think in Geneva you can tell the spirit of a restaurant by the free starters they offer, and while most will... More

The only hotel apart from the Richemond and the Bergues in Geneva where I had not stayed in. Decision factor this time was not location or price, but the swimming pool because I was traveling with the kids. I loved the location, the view (although there is better at the Kempinsky) and the bed which was heavenly and provoked a... More

When I found out this was part of the Luxury Collection having stayed at many before, I was expecting a lot more in the hotel. It was rather just a very nice five star hotel with very good service. I was at the hotel for an event and the coordination was very good. I would say my only two complaints... More
