Mandarin Oriental GenevaWith the scenic Rhone River right on the doorstep and the atmospheric cobbled streets of Geneva’s historic Old Town all around, the Mandarin Oriental represents a splash of modern luxury in a charming and traditional setting. The 189 rooms, all renovated in 2013, have a discerningly modern-luxe feel, with earthy, neutral color schemes, an abundance of space, comfort, and amenities—from the espresso machines to the pillow menu—and state-of-the-art in-room entertainment. The marble bathrooms are large enough to host separate rain showers and baths, and if you book a suite you will find plentiful Hermes bath products.
All of the rooms have excellent views, of either the garden, the street, or the river, though only the 7th-floor rooms have a river-facing terrace. There are several dining options on-site, including an acclaimed Indian restaurant, and the spa offers some seriously high-end pampering.

Asian Hospitality with Swiss Precision
The 196-room Mandarin Oriental is in the heart of the Geneva, overlooking the Rhone River. It's just a short walk to both the iconic Jet d'Eau and the city's financial district. There are three restaurant options, the Michelin-starred Vineet, serving Indian; Café Calla, serving French; and tapas and cocktails at the MO Bar. If the hotel doesn't ooze Old World charm, it provides instead a stylishly contemporary base in Geneva.
