Must go for everyone visiting Geneva. Very selective meals. Great taste for shows, food and good recommendations for entertainment. Quite expensive during busy periods. For couples, they offer special care.

Beautifully appointed hotel with great finishing touches. The service is what you'd expect from this chain but also the facilities are top notch. Well worth going to for a drink at the bar overlooking the lake on a beautiful summer's eve.
