Conveniently located close to the most recognized Swiss factories, international organizations including the UN, OMS, OMC, OMPI, diplomatic missions and consulates, museums, and other captivating destinations, Hotel President Wilson is the ideal choice for both leisure and business travelers.
Crossing the Mont-Blanc Bridge towards the left bank, the Jardin Anglais (English Garden) awaits, as well as the famous Flower Clock—a reflection of Geneva’s expertise in watchmaking. Steps away is the National Monument, which commemorates Geneva’s joining the rest of Switzerland in 1815. And on the right bank, is the Brunswick Monument, which contains the tomb of Charles II, Duke of Brunswick.
Home to over 40 public and private museums and numerous art galleries, Geneva beckons to be explored. For seasoned aficionados and curious ingénues, the Art and History Museum, Patek Philippe Museum, International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, will pique various interests ranging from archaeology and ethnography, to arts, sciences, and technology. Memorable and exciting sights further await, with the Saint Peter's Cathedral, Reformation Wall, Place Neuve, Place du Bourg-de-Four, and Grand-Théâtre (opera house) easily accessible from the hotel.
As the world capital of luxury watchmaking, Geneva epitomizes fine craftsmanship and constant technological progress. Along the Rue du Rhône, impressive watch and jewelry shops of distinguised brands from Cartier and Rolex to Jaeger Lecoultre and Audemars Piguet immediately entice. Globus—Geneva's premier shopping center—offers a variety of shops from designer labels to high-end jewellers, all a short 15-minute walk from the hotel. For chocolate lovers, exquisite chocolatiers such as Chocolates Rohr, Micheli, and Martel are mere minutes away. General shopping hours are from 9am to 7pm daily but may vary on Thursday through Saturday (Globus is closed on Sundays).
Moments away is Lake Geneva and its picturesque views. On a clear day, the majestic Mont Blanc is visible on the horizon, while the Jet d’eau fountain—spouting a column of lake water up to 140 meters in the air—is a sight to behold. Outside the city, active adventures await. From skiing on the Swiss slopes Verbier and Gstaad are a mere two hours away to water rafting down the Arve River just three hours drive.
