Upmarket midern hotel, right on the lake at Geneva and not too far to walk back to the main railway station. Our room had a great view of the lake and the mountains beyond. Comfortable bed, good bathroom and very helfpul and attentive staff. Minibar prices were extraordinarily high, strangely. But the room service food was very good, including the... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The room was spacious and had a complimentary power converter so we could use U.S. plugs on our various devices. The staff and concierge were very knowledgable and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Geneva.

It's been few years since I've been there but I can definitely say that it was a pleasant experience. The rooms are really great, clean and nicely furnished, those with the lake view are much better, of course. The only not so comforting thing, which you see outside the window is the pool, because it's the city hotel at the... More

We just checked in to our room a couple of hours ago. Although we came around 7.30 am, they said that our room is ready and available for us which was a blessing after a long intercontinental flight. You can see elegance in the entire place including staff's attitude towards guests. I highly recommend this hotel. You will not be... More

This definitely one of the best hotels in Geneva. As one would expect the service is exceptional, the rooms are fairly large by European standards as is the bed. The bathroom is also quite large and the amenities include Hermes products. Most rooms have a lake view which makes it all the better. The breakfast is very expensive and offers... More

Great lobby, restaurants and bar area. Service great. Very nice spa area with great treatments. We loved the location. Walking location to great shopping and great views of lake in certain rooms. Rooms a bit dated but all in all I would definitely stay there again.

A friendly 5-star hotell in Geneva. Nice large rooms with very good beds and high quality linnen. B&O television. Nice marble bath. The roomservice was perfect. I found the breakfast too expensive (CHF 95) for two, is too much for the breakfas offering.nice spa & pool on the terrace. A good choise !

This is my third year staying at the President Wilson for an annual trade show. To hotel is great with good size rooms and comfortable beds. This year I got a second floor room which gave me an outdoor space which was nice.

All I can tell you is that the staff is top notch. The room was normal. But...Watch OUT for the ho-hum breakfast buffet. $100.00 for two people......but even worse, they charged me $12.00 For a DIET COKE. Give me a break, they might as well had a ski-mask on when they robbed me
