Ritz-Carlton to Take Over Management of Hotel de la Paix in Geneva

Ritz-Carlton has signed an agreement with the Manz family in Switzerland which will see the Hotel de la Paix in Geneva become a partner hotel as of 16 December 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 comprehensive renovation will include reducing the number of hotel guestrooms to 75 suites.

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.

Hotel De La Paix Geneva

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.

The partnership commences in the year that sees the Hotel De la Paix celebrate its 150th anniversary. Ljuba Manz-Lurje, Chairperson of the Board of Directors for Manz Privacy Hotels Switzerland AG, said, I am delighted that the hotel De La Paix, the jewel of Geneva, will be managed by The Ritz-Carlton, one the of the worlds most famous and luxurious hotel companies.
