The Woodward, a new addition to the Oetker Collection, debuts in Geneva, Switzerland, with an unusual concept: Each accommodation is a suite.
Andrew Harper visits "absurdly beautiful" Switzerland and reports back on his favorite scenic hotels in Geneva, Lucerne, St. Moritz, Zermatt and more.
Many travelers enjoy only a brief experience of Geneva en route to the French Alps or the Swiss heartland. This is a shame, because it is an elegant and cosmopolitan city that offers the visitor a lot more than just exquisite watches. One of the world's capitals of diplomacy, it has the largest concentration of United Nations offices outside of New York. It is also a major financial center. And its setting at the western end of Lake Geneva, surrounded by vineyards and with the high Alps as a snow-covered backdrop, is lovely in every season.
