Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a sprawling chalet-style property 10 minutes from Lake Geneva’s town center. Originally designed as the first Playboy Club Hotel in the U.S. when it opened in 1968, the property takes inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright in its architecture and design. 

Rooms are country chic, with leather armchairs and antique-style furniture. Views overlook the lake or golf courses and most rooms have a private balcony or patio. Suites feature a full wet bar including a minifridge, and some also have sofa beds and gas fireplaces. 

Guests who upgrade to the club level will find a cozy private-access club room with a fireplace, where guests can take advantage of breakfast, snacks, drinks and evening hors d’oeuvres. Other dining options include the steak-focused Geneva Chophouse and Ristorante Brissago, both winners of multiple OpenTable Diner's Choice awards. 

Grand Geneva features indoor, outdoor and lap pools on site; guests can also access the nearby Timber Ridge sister resort with its 50,000-square-foot indoor water park, heated water slides and a lazy river (passes available to guests for an additional fee). The AAA 4-Diamond resort feels like an enormous country club, with two championship golf courses, including the Jack Nicklaus-designed Highlands -- GolfAdvisor calls it a "must play." 

The resort is located just 10 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva with its many boutique shops, restaurants and bars. When the tour boats are running, a cruise on the lake is highly recommended, but there's a trail that runs along the entire lakefront if you want to get a little closer to the historic homes that line the water.

Resort could use a little updating and a groundskeeper, but other than that, it was a pretty nice place to stay. Plenty to do if you decide to use their amenities.

the massage was great, however the room was freezing and I never warmed up.
Other Comments
There was broken glass all over our patio and it took 2 phone calls to get someone to come over and pick it up. They only picked up the large pieces, and ignored all the small pieces. I requested a top sheet after the first night and never received one. On the last night after house keeping came through, they left our door ajar.
