The staff was really friendly and professional. The hotel is nice and clean. My favorite part was the view of the Duomo from my room. I especially love where my room was located...it was quiet and away from the street crowd. I would definitely come back to this hotel next time around.

Stay Here!

Pros: What's not to like? recently remodeled, the hotel is absolutely beautiful, completely high tech, blessed by a marvelous location, excellent staff.
Cons: Although the breakfasts are wonderful, don't plan to eat other meals "in hotel". The staff was wonderful about recommending local treasures for dining and sightseeing.
Location: Particular thanks to Michael at the front desk....went out of his way to ensure our family had a great stay. Just blocks from open market, Duomo.
