Whereas the architecture of hotels in the United Kingdorn or America, in the Middle or Far Fast is often breathtaking, the facilities of hotels in continental Europe often tend to look pale in comparison. However, the Crowne Plaza Geneva, without being ostentatiously luxurious, offers its clients a highly attractive level of comfort and a beguiling range of services that set the hotel apart and establish new standards for the future. Visitors to the hotel are afforded an intriguing variety of vistas: the main courtyard, the pedes¬trian walkway, the Mediterranean garden, the Atrium, the restaurants, the conference rooms, the attractive areas for relaxation around the new swimming pool, and they will repeatedly be struck by the contrasting structural and thematic use of space and decorative elements. The Crowne Plaza Geneva is fit for the 21 st century ... For instance, the first impression of the hotel upon arrival is not the sight of a reception desk, but a view of the Mediterranean garden, a natural work of art combining wood, trees, light, and fragrant flowers. It’s a stunning setting, extending a verdant welcome to visitors that contrasts with the majesty of the buildings. Another example is the Atrium, with its' shirting lighting, creating an intimate atmosphere inside the building, while at the same time offering a grandiose decorative fresco to visitors arriving from the entrance. It makes an unforgettable first impression. The materials were skilfully chosen to make the whole design hang together. The flooring provides a smooth transition between one area and the next, white the lacquered or wooden panelling generate a feeling of continuity and create a warm, welcoming environment full of colour and shimmering light. Today's Crowne Plaza Geneva Hotel is not only somewhere to work and sleep, but also a place to live and dream! Hervé Dessimoz, architect
