InterContinental Genève launches it's luxurious new residences
Refurbished by world-renowned New York interior designer
Making history, one guest at a time, InterContinental Genève makes a strong come back into the hospitality scene with the unveiling The Residences. Refurbished by world-renowned New York interior designer Tony Chi and his associate William Paley, each of these three stately spaces is a library of anecdotes, with history woven into each wall.
Originally built in 1963, InterContinental Genève is located in the heart of Geneva's diplomatic district and nestled in an area of lush parkland. A mere 3-minute walk from the United Nations and International Centre of Congress CICG, and within a 5-minute drive from Palexpo Exhibition Centre and luxury shopping area, this imposing 18 story icon has become a firm favourite amongst dignitaries and jet setters alike.
Behind the sophisticated bamboo framed exterior and stately public spaces, are 16 meeting and event spaces, two dining venues, a bar, The Clarins Institute & Day Spa, a 24-hour fitness facility, and 333 intimate guest rooms, including 49 elegantly furnished suites and three handsomely appointed residences.
This 5-star property has hosted an elite clientele ranging from 400 heads of state to over 4,000 government ministers, in addition to a handful of ambassadors, political figures, performing artists and sports personalities. Guests have included Sophia Loren, Ray Charles, Roger Federer, Kofi Annan, Che Guevara and world leaders like Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, Fidel Castro, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and our very own beloved Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who was the principal driving force behind the formation of the United Arab Emirates, the emir of Abu Dhabi and first President of the UAE.
