In a city, a luxury hotel represents a safe haven at any time, and even if you've already booked a room somewhere, a visit to the iconic hotels of a city is always worthwhile. A coffee, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner offer various ways of experiencing the unique and often historic environment of a luxury hotel.
For example, in Florence, the St. Regis Florence has reopened following a complete renovation of the Grand Hotel, which has been a landmark of Florentine hospitality right from the 18th century. Its restaurant Etichetta offers a great location for an informal but stylish lunch, perhaps as an interlude during business or sight-seeing. The hotel is centrally located, on the River Arno, near Ponte Vecchio. The menu includes some Florentine specialities as well as Mediterranean cuisine, with a fine selection of wines on the list.
In the same group, Hotel Savoy on Piazza Repubblica is a great option for cocktails. Just follow the links below to find out more.
