Hotel de la Paix, Geneva to become a Ritz-Carlton partner hotel

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has signed an agreement with the Manz family in Switzerland which will add the Hotel de la Paix in Geneva as a partner hotel as of December 16, 2015. The boutique property sits on the banks of Lake Geneva, (Lac Leman) in Switzerland.


Following an extensive renovation planned by the Manz family, the hotel is scheduled for re-launch at the end of 2016 as The Ritz Carlton, Hotel de la Paix Geneva. The lakeside property will undergo a comprehensive renovation which includes reducing the number of hotel guestrooms to 75 stunning luxury accommodations featuring refreshed, modern and generously proportioned suites.

The Hotel De la Paix, built in the center of Geneva in 1865, has been witness to a multitude of historical world events. In January 1872, the international arbitration tribunal for the Alabama Claims met at the Hotel De la Paix. Today, the Alabama Salon still serves as a reminder of this important event within the hotel. And as with all iconic treasures in Europe, many decorated and well-known personalities have been hosted, one of which was Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, who whiled away the hours on the banks of Lake Geneva savoring the glorious views over Mont Blanc.

“It is an honor to bring The Ritz-Carlton experience to Switzerland and to partner with the highly regarded Manz family,” said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer, The Ritz-Carlton. “Geneva is an extremely desirable destination for travelers and we will now be able to offer a sensational travel experience to complement the full portfolio of Ritz-Carlton properties around the globe,” he added.
