Fodor's Expert Review Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel & Spa

Via Gerolamo Frescobaldi 5, Rome, Latium, 00198, Italy

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 wonderful indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a piano bar with stained glass and carved walnut appointments, an über-chic spa, and chamber music in the garden.
