Pool Of The Hotel President Wilson

Consistently featured in the top five most expensive hotels in the world, the Hotel President Wilson is the crown jewel on the tiara that is Geneva; a luxury collection hotel located on the lakeshore with spectacular panoramic views of Lake Geneva and the famous Jet d’Eau.

Its reputation of having the most spacious and luxurious hotel suite has attracted many well-known public figures to its state-of-the-art Royal Penthouse. The Wilson has been beautifully renovated and is one of Geneva’s most contemporary five-star hotels. Its 180 rooms and 48 suites are equipped with the latest Bang & Olufsen LCD screens with 120 digital TV channels in HD and free internet access. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s superb leisure facilities and spa. With an exceptional view of the lake, the hotel’s outdoor pool or Geneva downtown, the living areas cocoon guests in pure luxury and refinement. The President Wilson’s pursuit of excellence and delivery of superior guest experiences is fundamental to the success of its brand. Heads of State and celebrities who have stayed here include: Bill Clinton, King and Queen Mohammed VI, Tony Blair, Michael Douglas, Rihanna and Matt Damon.



Why we love it: The Royal Penthouse is one of the most expensive hotel suites in Europe. This opulent living space occupies the entire eighth floor of the President Wilson and offers maximum security, ensuring total privacy and protection from the public eye. Featuring 12 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a 1930’s billiard table, a Steinway grand piano for the musically minded, a fitness center, private elevator, private terrace, and a cinema / entertainment room with an impressive Bang & Olufsen 103-inch LCD screen.
