‘Discover Florence from the Arno River’
The Westin Excelsior sits on the Piazza Ognissanti in Florence, overlooking enchanting views of the River Arno and just a quick 10-minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio and historic city centre. From here, guests can easily reach all of Florence's main attractions including the Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria and the awe-inspiring Duomo. Guest rooms at the hotel seamlessly combine traditional Tuscan style with modern comforts and are completed with tranquil views across the Arno River and Historic District. The glass-enclosed rooftop restaurant displays breath-taking city panoramas and serves modern Italian cuisine in a chic and stylish environment; the glamorous art-deco OVRM Bar serves creative cocktails alongside live music. The hotel also features a selection of special amenities for children and infants to keep them happy and entertained throughout their stay.
In Our Opinion'This waterfront property is excellent for first time visitors to Florence. Its location next to the river is great for navigation, and the hotel occupies something of a Goldilocks zone. Not too far out of the centre town, but not too close - just right for some.'
Perched on the fifth floor of the hotel, these rooms lead out to a private terrace furnished with comfortable sun loungers and showcasing spectacular view across the Arno River or Historic District.
These rooms are furnished with precious antiques and fine fabrics and feature a sumptuous Heavenly® Bed as well as shower and bathtub. All rooms display magnificent over the Arno River towards the hills and some feature a balcony.
