Swissôtel Métropole, Geneva unveils new generation of luxury business rooms

The twelve new “signature rooms” at Swissôtel Métropole, Geneva, are the first of their kind within Swissôtels & Resorts and point the way to future projects for the global hotel group with Swiss roots. The innovative design follows an alpine inspiration, with parquet floors and an absolute eyecatcher,the colourful wallpapers, which symbolize seas of flowers as encountered in the Swiss Alps.

The exclusive wallpapers were designed especially for the hotel by the renowned Swiss textile manufacturer Jakob Schlaepfer, a Silk and Embroidery Company which supplies luxury fashion designers such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood with exceptional materials.

The open, mosaic bathrooms are a particular highlight, providing guests with their own personal spa experience via the steam showers or Jacuzzi baths with jet stream. The comfort experience is enhanced by the Swissotel product line Pürovel, which is produced by
Swiss farmers using pure biological oils and local herbs.

The signature rooms also demonstrate the latest technological developments: all lights and electronic instruments are navigated via a central control panel and the 150 channel television is integrated into a room-high mirror, with a media connection panel allowing
guests to connect an MP3 player, an iPad or notebook and to view an own video, for example. Various additional services, which are available free of charge to guests in the new rooms, are decisive for the unique hotel experience. Minibar, ironing service on arrival, Nespresso.

Swissotel Métropole, Geneva is ideally located on the left lakeshore, midst in the business and shopping quarter of the city and only a few minutes’ walk from the old town. The 111 rooms and 16 suites provide the latest technology and constitute the ideal
accommodation for both business and private travelers.

During my recent stay in Geneva at the Swissotel Metropole, I had the privilige to experience one of the new Signature Rooms, which I found as among the best five star business superior rooms I have ever stayed at. Functionality perfectly blends with Swiss inspired furnishings, making for a very cozy and comfortable stay. Further rooms will be renovated gradually at the hotel, including the breakfast restaurant and some of the public spaces. Another spectacular highlight of the hotel is its rooftop terrace with stunning views of Geneva skyline and the lake.
