Hotel President Wilson

Hotel President Wilson hotel may be the best and most luxurious hotel in Geneva at this moment.  The location on Lake Leman, of course, is stellar. Its resent renovation brings it well into the 21st century and ahead of the other stiff competition. It’s the only hotel with an outdoor pool.  The décor is modern and in timeless exquisite taste that is plush and at times whimsical.  For sure, this new interior fits well with the modern exterior which has always been striking.

Service is another standout benefit to guests.  Efficiency and dedication is evident. In deference to the country, the Swiss are known for their excellent trainng in the art of hostelry. The Hotel President Wilson must have hired all honor students.

The bright light-filled lobby compliments the modern art and furnishings. The reception desk with its geometric shapes sets the mood for the high end contemporary ambiance throughout the rest of the hotel.
Glow, the sprawling new bar, is a vision in white and popular! Its sexy modern look attracts an equally attractive crowd who love to have drinks while admiring what seems like a mile long fire place.  There are also bars attached to each of the exciting new restaurants, as well as the seasonal pool.

The Bay View Restaurant is a new addition, and a formidable culinary detour with a delightful lakeside terrace. The new menu overseen by veteran chef Ulrich Behringer opts for well-prepared Continental fare with an emphasis on fresh produce and sustainable meat and poultry. It serves lunch and dinner, but is closed Sunday and Monday.

The famous Arabesque restaurant has a few new exotic design touches to accompany the much-sought-after Lebanese fare.  The restaurant is considered to be one of the best Middle Eastern fine dining establishments anywhere. It’s not the falafels or hummus that bring the savvy diners, including sheiks and their friends back so often.  The adjoining bar serves tapas versions of the menu.

The newer 10-story wing harbors Geneva's only heated seawater pool.  On the vast deck, canvas parasols shade teak chaise lounges and a seasonal cafe terrace. It is open from May through September. The adjoining spa is the most chic in all of Geneva. The all-hours fitness center keeps regular and new guests in shape, and a beauty salon preps them for a night on the town.  The President Wilson is almost a resort hotel.

Guest rooms are consistent in their trim modern aesthetic that is understated but grand. The colors used are not as bright as those used at the competition but classic contemporary décor that is bolder stands out more.

Fine wool carpeting and coordinated fabrics in gold tones provide dramatic accents, and the custom wood furniture, excellent lighting and art give those without lake views something to look at.

All rooms provide air-conditioning, Bang & Olufsen TVs, iPod docks,  phones with voice mail and data ports, wireless high-speed Internet access (for a fee), DVD players, minibars, safes and full-length mirrors.

The marble baths come with dual basins, second phones, hair dryers, plenty of our favorite Acqua di Parma toiletries, glass shower stalls, stacks of terry bath sheets, bidets, slippers and robes. In superior rooms and suites, guests could camp out for hours in the capacious travertine-clad baths.

Most rooms afford some kind of lake view, and adjoining rooms are available.  The suites are in a class all their own.

Room service runs nonstop with turndown and twice-daily maid service. Pets are not permitted, and half of the rooms are dedicated smoke-free. Security is ever-present at this fine hotel, notable for the diplomats and celebrities that make this their Geneva home away from home.

The very professional staff at the the President Wilson, as mentioned earlier provides service standards that are right in line with this hotel's latest renovation. The completion marks a new era for this special hotel that ingratiates business and leisure travelers alike.  Everyone’s a star here!
