The St. Regis Florence, situated in the heart of the city, has been the preferred stop for seasoned travelers since the 18th century. Redefining iconic elegance after a landmark restoration in 2011, this sumptuous palace hotel is the perfect location to experience Tuscany's timeless beauty. The hotel's inspiring and romantic location on the Piazza Ognissanti, overlooking the Arno River, offers one of the most enchanting views of the city's churches, the hills and the bell towers of Florence's Oltrarno, with Ponte Vecchio as background. The St. Regis Florence features the famed hallmarks of St. Regis hotels including the signature St. Regis Butler Service, bespoke guest experiences and luxury accommodations tailored to meet global travelers' needs.
The St. Regis Rome is one of the Eternal City's most romantic spots. Perfectly located within walking distance of the famed Via Veneto, Piazza della Repubblica and the renowned shopping areas, The St. Regis Rome is close to some of the citys most famous attractions – the Colosseum, Roman Ruins, Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona. Originally opened in 1894 by famed hotelier Cesar Ritz as Rome's first deluxe hotel, it features in each of the guestrooms and suites, exclusive bespoke amenities and unique murals reproduce views of the city just like windows opening onto history. Following the tradition of the legendary St. Regis Hotel New York, the exclusive butler service is available at any hour to fulfill every desire of the guests staying in our suites; no request is too small or unattainable.
