Westin Excelsior Rome

One of Rome’s most amazing hotels is the Westin Excelsior, and we’re sure most of you are probably aware of that by now. Located in the prestigious Via Veneto district, just a few minutes from the lovely Piazza di Spagna and the Villa Borghese Gardens, this famous hotel has accommodated celebrities, statesmen, and renowned artists since 1906, spoiling them with impeccable service and accommodations all the time.

The Westin Excelsior Rome offers 316 rooms or suites, with Biedermeier-style furniture, Bohemia chandeliers, and velvet-covered chairs, just to name a few of the bespoke luxuries inside. But the staff might be even more impressive than the accommodations, catering to your every need, including booking you the best table in town or getting you into the hotel’s massive health & spa center, which includes an indoor swimming pool, a gym and a hot tub as well.

If you’re already planning to stay at the Westin Excelsior, visiting the Lobby Bar is a must, at least for one of their special evenings involving wine tasting, the secrets of decorating cappuccino foam, or learning how to make a signature Westin cocktail. The Doney Restaurant, which beautifully overlooks Via Veneto, will make for a memorable dining experience, with delightful dishes that seem to complement those marvelous views.

Last but not least, we should also mention the splendid Villa La Cupola, located on the fifth and sixth floors of this glamorous hotel, which is said to be the largest suite in Europe, and also one of the most luxurious. It shows off a fitness room, board room, and a blissful living room topped by a fresco-covered cupola. There’s also an eight-seat theater that has been added recently, allowing guests to enjoy the finest things in life, during their stay in Rome.
