Fodor's Expert Review The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva

11 quai du Mont-Blanc, Geneva, Geneva, 1201, Switzerland Fodor's Choice

After an extensive top-to-bottom renovation, the historic Hotel de la Paix reopened as a Ritz-Carlton property, marking the luxury hotel brand’s debut in Switzerland. Directly on Lake Geneva, the hotel blends modern design with 19th-century Italianate framework. Guests are greeted in a stunning, multistory atrium with black-and-white marble floors, Italian-style balustrades, and an impressive crystal chandelier. Rooms with large windows that offer sweeping views of the Jet d'Eau, Mont Blanc, and the Old Town are decorated in muted grays and creams. Two excellent restaurants, including the Nordic-inspired Fiskebar, and a petite Philippe Pascoët chocolate shop round out the luxe experience.
