The nine-story, Mediterranean-style palazzo is dedicated to welcoming those who relish luxury, providing classic style and exemplary service. Rates match the seemingly endless list of amenities, including butler service for suites, a two-story spa with mineral water pool, plush bedding, and a rooftop pool and lounging area that feels like a serene oasis. Baths are mostly marble with custom-scented bath products; some rooms have small balconies to better appreciate the city and hillside views. Celeb chef Scot Conant's Scarpetta restaurant serves ultra-fine, market-fresh Italian specialties in a crisp modern dining room overlooking the hotel's fountain-filled garden. The kids' club Paintbox, Rooftop Grill, and the Gornick and Drucker Barber Shop round out the experience.
