Hotel Lobby - Light

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel de la Paix, Geneva recently completed an extensive re-design and refurbishment, marking a new era in the evolving story of one of Geneva’s most elegant and historic hotels. The updates to the iconic 152-year-old hotel include all new guest rooms and suites, a refreshed lobby experience, meeting and event space and three restaurants.


The Hotel de la Paix was given this name for a reason. His story begins in the XIX century, in a very complex but fascinating historical moment: citizens from different countries were fighting for their independence and war was in the air. This hotel hosted many crucial meetings, including the International Congress of Peace that re-shaped the destiny of Europe.

Woman in Grace Kelly Suite Bedroom

Princess Grace Kelly, who was usually staying at the suite that is now named after her, loved the beautiful view of the luxurious landscape that can still be enjoyed from its windows. The duality of Grace Kelly's beauty, defined by Alfred Hitchcock as cold and sensual at the same time, is reflected in the room's details, offering sophisticated art deco design and gold leaf, creating an elegant sanctuary.
