Palazzo Niccolini al Duomo
Via dei Servi 2, Florence, Tuscany, 50122, Italy
The graceful Marchesa Ginevra Niccolini di Camugliano has taken her husband's family's palazzo (acquired by an ancestor in 1532) and turned it into a luxurious place that still manages to evoke a cozy, yet highly sophisticated, home. She refers to her lovingly restored hotel as her third child. Rooms have high ceilings, damask drapes, and spacious, marble-floored bathrooms. Some have original 18th-century frescoes, others terrific views. The well-priced Dome Suite, with its remarkable view and hot tub, is worth a splurge, as the Duomo's so close you can practically touch it. An honor bar allows you to enjoy an after-dinner drink in a swank velvet-clad sitting room.
