Refurbished hotels rooms: tried and tested:
Where next will hotel room design inspiration come from? Swissôtel Métropole, Geneva goes Alpine…
Swissôtel Métropole, Geneva has created twelve “signature rooms” the first of their kind within Swissôtels & Resorts with a view to “wowing” their guests and ensuring that they are user friendly.
It all started with an alpine inspiration, parquet floors and an absolute eye-catching colourful wallpaper, which symbolize seas of flowers as encountered in the Swiss Alps…et voila! A signature room was born.
The rooms certainly make a statement and it is not only because of the wall paper, which have been exclusively designed for the hotel by the renowned Swiss textile manufacturer Jakob Schlaepfer, but because of the refreshing feeling that you get when you walk into the room.
It is a very modern approach to the previous but still existing conservative style which remain available for guests who resist change.
The signature rooms have open, mosaic bathrooms providing guests with their own personal spa experience via the steam showers or Jacuzzi baths with jet stream.The comfort experience is enhanced by the Swissotel product line Pürovel, which is produced by Swiss farmers using pure biological oils and local herbs. Guests have the additional possibility of a fulfilling Swiss spa experience at the neighbouring Spa 43 by Valmont if they so desire.
The signature rooms also demonstrate the latest technological developments: all lights and electronic instruments are navigated via a central control panel and the 150 channel television is integrated into a room-high mirror – and this is a real “wow” factor, with a media connection panel allowing guests to connect an MP3 player, an iPad or notebook or to view their own video.
The pampering does not stop there – guests can use free of charge for their unique hotel experience, the minibar, ironing service on arrival, Nespresso coffee machine and free Wi-Fi access.
Above all, every signature room offers a view over the famous English Garden or Lake Geneva.
Stefan Winistoerfer, General Manager of the Swissôtel Métropol, Geneva says that the , “the first guests in the signature rooms have been absolutely delighted. The designers have accomplished a modern and chic ambience, offering a high degree of comfort. Twelve additional signature rooms will be completed in the course of the year”.
