The 84-room Hotel de la Paix in Geneva will become a partner hotel of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co. in December. Following an extensive renovation planned by the owners, the hotel is scheduled to relaunch at the end of 2016 as the Ritz-Carlton, Hotel de la Paix Geneva.

Renovations on the lakeside property, which has a ballroom and three smaller meeting rooms, will take place next year. The project will reduce the number of guest rooms to 75.

"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 COO of 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."
