Geneva is not very friendly to drivers and at the same time you can't walk it for business or pleasure. Last minute decision and we land there with no hotel reservation. At the hotel desk at the airport my son asked for a swimming pool. Geneva doesn't have many places with pools. Manager at the desk asked us, - how about Chateau? 10 min drive to the center, nice views and best restaurant in Geneva.
Best deal I had in Geneva. For CHF275 we had two floor suite with fireplace. The building is historic but has all modern amenities. Plus free parking,view of the vineyard in the window, garden and scenery of the mountain valley as far as you can see.
Special feature is restaurant. Apparently the owner of the place is one of the best chefs in Switzerland. EVERY evening he personally is in the kitchen. Dinners are reservation only and they are full with visitors from town. We were given special treatment, as there were no tables we got VIP room in the cellar for free. And french fixed menu dinner is really good. Really.
And the last but not the least. Breakfasts. We asked first day for the menu and were told that there is no such thing. Not because there is a great selection of cheeses, sausages and other stuff on the buffet display. The principle is simple, - tell us what you want and how you want it and we make it. Probably you can do it if you love it and there are 10+ rooms in your hotel. So I recomment you make a reservation beforehand and ask for the room on the top.
Hotel price is reasonable but Swiss taxes are not. There is something called "Geneve Tourisme Package" and it is CHF333 plus CHF4 per person "Taxe de sejour". So my bill for CHF550 for 2 nights got these extras (I got an impression that it is one off, not per night). CHF20 per room (not per person) for breakfast was a nice surprise.
