Geneva's Top Hotels (PHOTOS)

Many travelers overlook elegant Geneva when planning a trip to Europe, but the city is well worth a visit.

It's popular mostly with business travelers and diplomats because many companies and international organizations have headquarters there, but its slow pace and upscale dining, shopping and accommodation options, make it a fantastic destination for a more relaxed yet equally grand and cosmopolitan European experience.

In the winter, the city is the perfect gateway to some of the best ski resorts in the continent, and in the warmer days a stroll along the shores of picturesque Lake Geneva will probably wow travelers with its iconic Jet d'Eau (the world's tallest fountain) and stunning mountain views. Whether you're in town for leisure or business, there is a hotel for everyone here. Check out our favorite hotels in Geneva and book your flights!
