Design Crush-Hotel N'vY Geneva



It's the kids spring break and with my two older kids studying in London and Scotland respectively, we decided to cross the pond this year and hit the slopes in Courchevel France. We would all be meeting up in Geneva first, my eleven year old and I spending the night before at the Hotel N'vY, (like envy) a chic boutique hotel a little off the beaten path in downtown Geneva but definitely worth a visit.

We arrived at night to a bustling modern lobby filled with cosy, mod seating areas, fantastic art on display and house music playing softly in the background. There was a shocked smile of approval from my daughter who seemed surprised I found such a hip place to stay. Ok, I was a little shocked I found such a cool place to stay too. We took the elevator up to our room, spacious and modern, furnished with Frette linens and robes, Etro bath products and an amazing sound system--really the perfect home away from home.

Famished after our flight went down to the lounge area and ordered delicious $35 hamburgers and a $22 vodka for mom. Geneva is so expensive! The hotel resident DJ played great house music and we stayed in the lounge for a while unwinding from our trip and admiring some of the impressive art at the hotel. N'vY is known for their spectacular collection which permeates every area of the hotel, from celebrated graffiti artist Meres One to Thierry Guetta, aka "Mr. Brainwash", a French urban artist now living in the US. 

Back up to our room and ensconced in our terry robes my daughter remarked that she could get used to N'vY...me too!

What a nice hotel! Sadly, Geneva is really expensive, just as you said. I thought that it is some kind of wordplay with NYC and the name of this hotel.

With best regards from Hotel deals in NYC
