Modern Times Hotel

The WorldHotels Elite Collection has expanded following the addition of the four-star property located in Vevey on Lake Geneva.

The hotel boasts 136 guestrooms and suites, all with stylish designs. Its F&B offer consists of the Times Bar and Lounge and the Times Grill, which provide indoor and outdoor dining as well as a wide selection of wines. Additional amenities include a fitness centre and 6 conference rooms that offer event space capable of hosting up to 180 people.

Named after the film Modern Times, the hotel pays homage to famous Vevey resident Charlie Chaplin. Its design is a tribute to the British film star, and its artwork and furnishings honour his life’s work.

Sustainability is another key theme of Modern Times Hotel. The efficient Minergie building relies on solar panels to provide energy and heat water and it also has charging points for electric cars. The produce used in its eateries is sourced from local suppliers and varies depending on the season.

As travel continues to rebound around the world, we remain committed to bringing even more unique and unforgettable travel experiences to our guests. This hotel is truly one of a kind and we are thrilled to welcome the Modern Times Hotel to the WorldHotels portfolio.

Ron Pohl, President of WorldHotels

The Modern Times Hotel is a wonderful addition to the Elite Collection portfolio. The town of Vevey is considered one of the pearls of the Swiss Riviera, offering magnificent views of the Alpine panorama and providing easy access to local vineyards and excursion destinations.

Wytze Van Den Berg, Vice-President International Operations – EMEA of WorldHotels
