    Design and comfort take first priority in the new rooms of the Swissôtel Métropole, Geneva. The twelve “signature rooms” 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 eye-catcher, 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 of international repute, 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 coffee machine and free Wi-Fi access are all included. All signature rooms are offering a view over the famous English Garden or Lake Geneva.

    According to Stefan Winistoerfer, General Manager of the Swissôtel Métropol, Geneva, “the first guests in the signature rooms have been absolutely delighted. The designers have accomplished a modern and chic ambience, offering a high degree of comfort. Twelve additional signature rooms will be completed in the course of the year”.

    The luxury hotel 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.
