Very nice modern hotel. Restaurants and bars. Nice illuminations and the floral decoration is very nice. The rooms are well decorated and very clean. Very friendly staff. Very nice view of the Geneva lake. Near the center of Geneva. 15 minutes to the airport.

We stayed here for a weekend break for 3 nights. First of all the hotel is easy access from the airport, only 15 minutes in a taxi at most. On arrival our checkin was prompt and quick. Kevin the fron desk duty manager was very polite and helpful. The reception area is slowly small but nicely decorated, there were quite... More

This hotel is in dire need of a makeover, it is old and without any upgrades. The hotel is a 5 star category 7 hotel in the Starwood chain, this should suggest that it is a refined gem within the brand of over 1500 hotels. The rooms were standard business type rooms and if you are lucky enough to get... More

The President Wilson hotel should be a stunning example of 5 star service with swiss charm. It is indeed a 5 star and a category 7 hotel in the starwood alliance however, it is far from a memorable hotel and one that would garner such high prices. Some examples were, I asked for an iron, no ironing board arrived, a... More

Food....We tried the Japanese restaurant which had lovely views but the food wasn't great, small portions and high prices, the salmon and sushi were flavoursome but the sea... More

I normally stay at this hotel 4 to 5 times a year for business with stays ranging between 1 and 2 nights each. The hotel is superb with an excellent location and a wide range of restaurants including the Lebanese restaurant Arabesque which is possibly the best in Geneva. The service is outstanding and the staff is very attentive. Being... More

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel and we were well treated by all the staffs in the premises. Every request such as booking of a table in the restaurant or getting garage tickets were done with written confirmation attached! Sometimes, you may need to be treated like a president even if it is a bit expensive!

The hotel is located right off of Lake Geneva with a great view of the water. The rooftop pool was awesome! I loved the Japanese restaurant on there as well. It was one of the best meal I had in Switzerland. Room is nice and spacious, no complaints.
