Map
398 Via Roma, Palermo, 90141, Italy

For gravitas, it’s hard to beat the Grand Hotel et Des Palmes in the center of old town Palermo. Built in the 1850s, the hotel has seen sensational murders, suicides, dangerous liaisons, and diplomatic intrigue, especially in 1943, when it served as allied headquarters. Today, the hotel’s 177 rooms and six suites offer a palatial accommodation full of antique furnishings, thick curtains, stucco ceilings, and parquet floors. Gala events and conferences take place in the grand salons — replete with marble sculptures, massive chandeliers, and gilt mirrors.
