Established in 1865, the Grand Hôtel de la Paix was designed by the Swiss architect Jean-Marie Gignoux in an Italian style. Some key dates in the history of the 5 stars hotel now belonging to the Ritz-Carlton Group (Marriott Group):
- 7 september 1872: banquet to celebrate the end of the War of Secession
- 1954: cocktail organized by the Vietnamese delegation to celebrate the end of the Indochina war.
Hotel des Bergues
The neoclassical style façade and the gorgeous decor of the Hôtel des Bergues are taking their roots in a history that dates back to 1834. Ideally located on the shore of the Léman Lake, with a beautiful view on the Alps mountain, the hotel was at that time the most important palace of Switzerland. It belongs today to the Four Seaons hotels group.
