Hi Dave! Geneva hotels offer their guests a Geneva Transport Card indeed. It allows free urban transportation, so if you'll be making trips outside of the city, that won't be enough. Whether you need another rail pass, and which one is best, depends on the trips you have in mind. If you'll be staying within the Geneva region, either the Swiss Half Fare Card
or the 2/5 day Regional Pass Lake Geneva
would be fine. If you plan to make long trips and appreciate unlimited traveling, you could consider a 4 day Swiss Saver Pass
or 3 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
. Most pages I linked to show purchase options, both online and locally, too; just fill out your country of residence and further details in the upper right corner. Here
's how to calculate which pass is most economical.
You could make train trips in the direction of Montreux, Gstaad and Zweisimmen; that's a splendid journey. Also consider the Chocolate train to Broc.
As for hotels: hotels near the railway station of Geneva are listed here
