Geneva, Switzerland — Rev heads and car enthusiasts can start their engines in preparation for the 80th International Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, hosted at the city’s Palexpo Centre from 4th until 14th March. This year is set to be a bumper one including the unveiling of the next-generation 2011 Audi A8, 2011 BMW 5-Series, and the 2011 Porsche Cayenne. According to a press release received by Elite Traveler, elite drivers can get into ‘Top Gear’ with the five-star Hotel d’Angleterre, on Lake Lemon in the heart of the city.
The show has been around almost as long as the automobile itself and has hosted almost all major internal combustion engine models in the entire history of the industry, along with benzene and steam powered cars from the beginning of the 20th century. It is especially popular because Switzerland has no domestic automobile industry, so it is seen as offering a truly neutral platform by all the world’s major manufacturers.
To make the most of this action packed ten days, discerning visitors have the opportunity to stay at the Hotel d’Angleterre – with its ambience of exclusive calm and refined opulence and a welcome as professional as it is personal. There really is nowhere else in Geneva to match it. Truly thoughtful and attentive service is one of the hallmarks of the Hotel d’Angleterre, so it is no surprise that they have created a special all-inclusive package for guests attending the show.
The Motorshow package includes:
* Accommodation for two in a beautifully appointed room or suite
* Buffet Breakfast daily
* Two tickets for the Motorshow
* Return taxi transfer to the Palexpo Centre
* A four-course dinner in Windows restaurant where you will enjoy a breathtaking view over the lake and Jet d’Eau
Dating back to 1872, Hotel d’Angleterre has all the old world charm with new world service. Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, with majestic views of the Jet d’Eau, Mont Blanc and surrounding mountains, the hotel is a short walk or boat ride to Geneva’s elite shopping on Rue du Rhône and the banking district.
Each of the 39 guest rooms and six luxury suites is lavishly decorated with the finest fabrics and furnishings in a distinctly European style. The hotel boasts Windows restaurant, celebrated for its superb award-winning cuisine and spectacular views across the lake and beyond to Mont Blanc. Its Leopard Room Bar, the most famous bar in the city, is the perfect place to sample their well-stocked selection and enjoy contemporary live music on the weekends. Hotel d’Angleterre is part of Red Carnation – a luxury collection of family-run boutique hotels, and a member of The Leading Small Hotels of the World.
