I was here one night only, and truly loved it. Abundant smiles and really helpful staff. Just one little story to get the idea: I had forgotten a pc accessory in my room and with one call only the staff took note, retrieved it and called me back to arrange for an easy pick-up. This is service to its best!

This property is stunning in the communal areas but I fear the interior designers zest faded in the prestige rooms (one of which we stayed in). One or two boutiques in the hotel including that of Tom Ford (fragrance).

The prestige room offered side views of the lake and the pool area and is similar that of the average London sized bedrooms. Bath products are by Ex Voto and very nice, definitely worth the mention.

Its a leasurely walk into the city alongside the lake. Quai Wilson which is the street the hotel is on runs into Quai du Mont-Blanc and is host a quite a number of 5 star hotels and their restaurants. Other independent little cafes and stalls selling anything from ice cream to Pimms to tickets for excursions can be found along the route. The plumes of Jet d' Eau can be seen from the time you leave the hotel or indeed dependent on what room category you stay in.

There is a Creme de la Mer spa at this hotel and as it is Switzerland be prepared to spend some 25% more for the equivalent than you would at the Urban Retreat spa in Harrods. The the weather was beautiful the temperature in the outdoor pool was simply not inviting.

The hotel is under CHF40 taxi fare away from the Geneva Airport unless the taxi driver decides to charge you for handling your luggage and under CHF 20 taxi fare away from Geneva Cornavin train station. Geneva Cornavin train station is the next stop from Geneva airport train station and there is a taxi rank outside.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for having taken the time to share your comment with the online travel community.

Regarding the interior design of the hotel, please note that our hotel has undergone some extensive renovation a few years ago, including rooms. This is the reason why the choice of the architect was to design sober and comfortable rooms. We always try to make you feel “home away from home” while staying at the President Wilson Hotel.

We are pleased that you appreciated our bath products. Thank you for mentioning all the special highlights that made your stay comfortable.

We look forward to welcoming you back at the Hotel President Wilson during your next stay in Geneva.

Kind regards,

F. Newhart

I stayed at this hotel for a trip of a lifetime. From the moment I arrived on site, I felt and was treated like royalty. From the meals at the restaurants at the hotel to every staff member I met with I was treated better then I ever have in my lifetime.

We organised a business meeting at this Hotel. Apart from the excellent location, the service and the organisation were great. The team was available throughout the day. The rooms are very comfortable, and the food (whether breakfast or lunch) is excellent. Recommended for this type of event.

Room Tip: ask for a view on the lake and the Mont Blanc (does not charge extra)

The hotel offers a solid overall package. It is located on the lake shore, a bit out of the city center, but still okay to walk in the evening (public transport connection is also good). The room I had was fairly small for this category of hotel, but made up for that with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was good standard, the room service food was also decent and, considering the generally crazy Geneva price standards, not even overpriced (you pay the same in the restaurants in town).

Biggest plus for me was the staff, which really went the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay. Unfortunately, they appeared a bit understaffed at times - I experienced a considerable queue especially for check-out, which is problematic if you are on a tight schedule.

Not my cup of tea, however, is the design of the place - the exterior is an ugly '60s concrete block, and the interior is in part very nice, in other parts however, well, a matter of taste. To me personally, the green marble and the pink-and-purple-backlit Svarowski-style crystals are more Wayne Rooney than tasteful luxury - a bit tacky (ManUtd supporters, accept my apologies for the analogy).

Overall, I have no reason to be dissatisfied with the President Wilson, but for a better rating, it's somehow lacking the real highlights.
