The city has numerous luxury hotels and resorts, and while most of them are sure to be serviceable, why not find the perfect accommodations to fit your needs? Allow us to help take some of the research and guesswork out of the equation and share our favorite spots to stay in Geneva:
If you’re going to be traveling for business or plan to spend most of your time exploring Geneva, the Metropole Hotel is an excellent place to stay. Located in the heart of the financial and shopping districts, this five-star hotel has been elegantly renovated in a classy and sophisticated modern styling. The facilities can accommodate meetings and events on the premises and features both indoor and outdoor fine dining options and bars for casual meetups. The sharp and spacious suites make for a relaxing stay and you’ll be within walking distance of many of the city’s landmark attractions.
Hotel Royal at Evian Resort
The facilities here are nothing short of a modern day palace, and if you aren’t focused on business, Hotel Royal gives you great access to the city and a breathtaking view of the lake. The suites are easily among the best in the city, offering balconies for lounging and taking in the view. Les Fresques offers world-class fine dining and you’ll have access to Casino Evian if you’re in the mood for some gaming. If you find yourself feeling a bit more adventurous, there’s hot air balloon rides, horseback riding, boating on the lake, golf, and day-trips for skiing.
LeCrans Hotel and Spa
It is extremely difficult to make a list of our favorite resorts in Geneva without mentioning LeCrans. Technically, this ski-in ski-out lodge is outside of the city, but if you’re a fan of skiing you aren’t going to want to miss your chance to stay at one of the world’s best luxury ski resorts in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Besides its elegant suites, another reason LeCrans is so highly-rated is its fine dining restaurant, LeMontBlanc, which offers exceptional gourmet cuisine, an extensive wine list, and a serene view of the alps. LeSpa also makes LeCrans well-worth a visit. After a day out on the slopes, LeSpa offers full-service treatments and natural products to relax and rejuvenate sore muscles.
