This may be the cheaper option on the Ouchy lake shore when compared to the over-the-top prices next door, but it is still top notch. I booked a superior lake view room and was upgraded to a Junior Suite. It is always difficult to give an unbiased review if you get more than what you paid for, but I will try.
The suite is VERY spacious, with excellent facilities (walk-in closet, stunning bathroom, all equipment and decorations are top class). Great views on Lake Geneva, and the windows do have electronic shutters if the "light" bothers you (like some other reviewers complained - imagine that!). Very comfortable study area with good wifi connection, well equipped for business travellers.
Very helpfull staff, especially the young man at reception. Ferries just across the road. Good connection to the city with the Metro around the corner (2 min on foot). Short taxi ride to the main rail station.
My only complaint: very expensive breakfeast, totally overpriced. Try the pancake shop next door, which is much better value.
Final word of advice: beware of the free transport card that the hotel give you. I was inspected on the Metro by an army of three inspectors and not one of them knew what it was or recognised it. Fortunately I also had my Swiss Pass on me.
