Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi

Via G. Frescobaldi 5, Rome, Latium, 00198, Italy

Fodor’s Expert Review

The 1960s-era facade of this large, seven-story hotel contrasts with the turn-of-the-20th-century Italian court decor and the extensive botanical garden outside, resulting in a combination of traditional elegance and contemporary pleasure. Windows in every room overlook an ocean of green, surmounted by St. Peter's dome; the hotel has a wonderful free-form swimming pool, a piano bar with stained glass and carved walnut appointments, an über-chic spa, and chamber music in the garden. When in season (September–May), you'll often find major-league Serie A soccer players staying here or coaches giving a press conference about last night's match.
