Royal Penthouse suite, President Wilson.
While the Royal Suite at the President Wilson Hotel in Geneva has not graced headlines for making status quo a check-in criteria, the bullet proof windows, the high tech security system and a guest list that includes names like Mikhail Gorbachev, Bill Clinton among pop and movie stars tend to suggest the extravagantly lavish 1,680 sq.ft hotel room to be a preferred home away from home for celebrities and important heads of state – visiting the second largest United Nations office in the world, located a few blocks away from the hotel.
The suite encompasses two separate floors, twelve bedrooms with marbled clad bathrooms, a private dinning room capable of seating 26 guests at the same time with a complimentary personal cook and butler as well as a Jacuzzi, an in-house gym, a billiard table, a private elevator and one of the largest televisions in the world. Its two master bedrooms come with huge walk-in- dressing rooms and its almost equally large balcony, a 180 degrees panoramic view. Perks also include a collection of ancient books, art pieces and a Steinway grand piano. The suite holds a coveted “World’s Leading Hotel Suite” award.
The hotel was originally designed by architect and hotelier Marcel Jacquignon, then spruced up for the modern times by the Swiss architect firm, Atelier d’Architecture 3 BM3, during an extensive $40 million face lift.
