7 Piazza della Repubblica, Florence, 50123, Italy

Famed hotelier Rocco Forte’s sister, Olga Polizzi, overhauled the storied Savoy's 102 rooms in a contemporary mix of snowy linens, dark wood furnishings, bright scatter cushions, and quirky pictures of shoes—a nod to the fact that Ferragamo actually owns the walls of this 19th- century palazzo on café-lined Piazza della Repubblica. Service is all you’d expect of a hotel of this caliber, making it a hit with everyone from demanding tourists to VIPs. Negatives are hard to find, though some decor details—like the overly elaborate marble bathrooms—seem a little out of step with hotel’s design ethic, and the redesign decision to cover the original, early 20th century murals in the ground floor bar with panelling was controversial, to say the least.
