Discover Geneva and its secrets
Facing the crystal blue of Lake Geneva, The Woodward inhabits a post-Haussmann style building erected in 1901 by architect François Durel. Take one step inside and the hotel’s elegant, belle époque façade instantly gives way to an opulent interior completely re-imagined by architect Pierre-Yves Rochon.
Home to exquisite dining from L’Atelier Robuchon and Le Jardinier, as well as a two-floor well-being oasis including Guerlain Spa at The Woodward, The Woodward is Geneva’s first all-suite hotel, a lakeside retreat suspended between nature and the city.
