I booked the F6 Design Hotel in Geneva, Switzerland for 10,800 American Airlines miles. I chose this hotel because I wanted to explore Northern Geneva since the previous hotel I stayed in was pretty much the heart of the city center. Hotels in Geneva are super expensive and I felt like I got a good deal for 10,800 AA miles.

The hotel is very close to Cornavin main central train station and it’s only an 8 minute walk to the F6 Design Hotel. It was raining hard that day, so I was glad the hotel was so close within walking distance of the train station.
I was greeted warmly by the front desk agent and was a little surprised by the question she asked. She said that the room was prepaid (yeah, I know), but that I would have to pay 3CHF in taxes. I thought my room was already prepaid with taxes included. I didn’t put up a fight, so I paid the 3CHF which wasn’t very much. That was the first time my room has been held hostage until the taxes were paid on an AAdvantage Hotel award.
The hotel also has Apple iMac computers with a printer in the business center.
My room was small and contained a Queen sized bed, functional desk, minibar, coffee maker, and a large flat screen TV.
The bathroom was small and ergonomic containing a sink, bath amenities, hair dryer, and a shower.
Breakfast was included in my rate and the breakfast room was quite nicely decorated. After all, it is a design hotel but much of it resembles cheap IKEA furniture.
The breakfast spread was continental and consisted of various meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, pastries, cereal, yogurt, and bread.
There was also a coffee machine and various juices.
I had a little bit of everything, but the highlight was the fresh croissants. I am a sucker for croissants and especially the chocolate filled ones.
I highly recommend this hotel if you just want to get out of the city-center area of Geneva. The hotel is located close to the red light district and an active nightlife scene, but it’s only an 8 minute walk to the central station and a 28 minute walk to the city-center. I didn’t do much in the area around the hotel when I stayed there because it was pouring rain all day.
