Situated on the Leman lake shore and just steps from the most beautiful parks and boutiques of the renowned Rue du Rhône, Hotel President Wilson is one of the most contemporary addresses in Geneva, facing the magnificent panorama of the Mont-Blanc.
Designed by architect and hotelier Marcel Jacquignon, Hotel President opened its doors for the first time on May 18, 1962. It was bought by Swissair and Nestlé after their joint venture in 1980, then later acquired by the Tamman family in 1989. In 1992, the family renovated and expanded the hotel with a 190 million CHF investment that included an additional wing of 80 guestrooms and suites, a conference center, underground parking, and a terrace with an outdoor pool.
The hotel reopened in 1996 as the new Hotel President Wilson, in honor of the 28th President of the United States of America, Woodrow Wilson—founder and relentless defender of the League of Nations. (Palais Wilson next door was built in 1873 and today houses the headquarters of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.)
Conveniently located close to the most recognized Swiss factories, international organizations including the UN, OMS, OMC, OMPI, diplomatic missions and consulates, museums, and other captivating destinations, Hotel President Wilson is the ideal choice for both leisure and business travelers.
With large bay-windows offering a panoramic view over Lake Leman, the hotel pool or Geneva city, all 204 Rooms and 22 Suites of the luxury hotel combine comfort and elegance. Live an exclusive experience at Spa La Mer and its outdoor pool overlooking the lake, and succumb to the delicacy of the award-winning cuisine from famous Chef Michel Roth.
