The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix

Arriving

Bonjour tout le monde! On our recent trip to Geneva , we had the pleasure of staying at the Luxurious Ritz Carlton Geneva. My husband and I were trying to decide between Ritz Carlton or The President Wilson hotel, we ended up choosing Ritz Carlton because they always have amazing service. Our last stay at Ritz Carlton was when we went to Honolulu, you can read that post by clicking here.

So the hotel is located on the Quai du Mont-Blanc street , right in front of the Jet d’Eau which is Geneva’s most famous landmark and is easily accessible from the hotel on foot. The location is particularly wonderful because you are in walking distance of plenty of things such as shopping, high rated restaurants , boat rides, cruises , parks etc. Traveling with our 17 month old , ease was always our priority.

Checking In

As we arrived the super attentive and friendly staff checked us in , the manager came and welcomed us as well. Our suite wasn’t ready when we arrived so we had to wait 15-20 min and traveling with a young child is already tough enough but the manager and their staff made sure we were comfortable until our suite was ready, they settled us in into the Living Room Bar & Kitchen which is right across the lobby and offered us free snacks and coffee.We did get a Garden Suite which was nice but we wanted something with the view of Lake Geneva. Unfortunately, they had some tour group coming the same weekend and all of those rooms were booked.

The hotel is very clean, all of their staff is super friendly and always ready to help you out.The hotel is child friendly , we were offered a crib but my son doesn’t really like sleeping in new cribs because he so used to the one at home so we were okay. We had a king bed which was enough for the three of us. I also ran out of whole milk for Azlan and was too tired to go looking for a grocery store so I asked in the lobby instead if they would be able to provide us with a bottle of milk , they did bring us a glass of milk but they didn’t have any bottles which worked out okay for us.

Bed & Bath

In the bathroom Asprey bath amenities are available as well as a hair dryer, scale , robes and slippers. Toilets are separate , Bidet/Muslim shower is also located in the toilet room. Bathroom is equipped with a bath tub and a shower area. Bedroom has a big cozy sofa and the second room also has a sofa bed. Working desk with stationary set , coffee maker and in-room bar is also available in the second room. Other things included were:

  • Full-length mirror, iron with ironing board
  • Complimentary Wifi was also provided
  • Two LCD Televisions With Cable
  • Complimentary bottled water is provided daily.
  • Room service done twice a day. morning/evening

 

Getting Around

Just another fyi , there is no ramp at the entrance so you actually have to pick up the stroller to take in and out of the door , the doorman actually helped us pick it up every time we had to go out. Since , we did have a car your only option is to valet park at the hotel, no self parking available because parking is so tight around this area. The car parking costs extra $45 per day which can be pretty expensive. If you have older kids who are good with public transportation then its your lucky day , Ritz Carlton offered each of us a free pass to use for public transportation which can save you a lot of money. Shopping at Rue du Mont-Blanc is only a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel , plenty of restaurants as well as high end brands are available here but obviously a lot of walking is required you can easily spend half or a whole day here.  ( To name a few: Louis Vuitton , Hermes, Burberry , Zara , H&M , Guess , Souvenir Stores etc. ) Visit the famous landmark of Geneva located right across the hotel Jet d’Eau or take a stroll in the park. Boat and Cruises are located along the Jet d’Eau park as well , walk around to find the option that fits your schedule the best.

 

Overall , It was definitely a great experience and stay. I am always in awe of how amazing and helpful the Ritz Carlton staff is , it leaves me speechless every-time.
