Surrounded by the Alps and Jura mountains, the city of Geneva in Switzerland is situated at the southern tip of Lake Geneva. It is here on the shores of Lake Geneva, with panoramic views of Mont Blanc, there lies a new hotel recently unveiled in September 2021, the latest addition to Oetker Collection’s portfolio. The Woodward hotel was originally built in 1901 by French architect Francois Durel, in post-Haussmann style and located on Quai Wilson, which is a road that runs along the north shore of Lake Geneva. World-renowned architect, Pierre-Yves Rochon has carefully reimagined and completely transformed the property into Geneva’s first all-suite hotel and home of Haute living.
