It may be a 20-minute walk to the Spanish Steps, but the Parco dei Principi setting, tucked away beside Rome’s biggest park, Villa Borghese, means fewer tourists and less traffic for arriving travelers who prefer quieter hotels in residential neighborhoods to the city’s more typical hotel clusters in the city. Here, baroque interiors feature gilded stucco, inlaid woodwork, and antique furnishings. But why stay inside when the views are stellar? Each of the hotel’s 179 rooms and suites have views of the park, where in the summer months, rhododendron flowers bloom and smartly dressed locals out for their evening passeggiata meander among the sculpture, fountains, and temples. The most recent news? In October 2010, a 21,000-square-foot spa opened for weary travelers tired after a day of sightseeing; unexpected amenities include an indoor lap pool complete with the illuminated ceiling of Rome’s night sky. Though nearby trattorias are known for the city’s signature spaghetti carbonara, the hotel’s food bar serves fresh, contemporary Italian cooking instead of pasta classics. For guests, the wellness focus is just another trump card that sets this lovely property apart.

Room to Book:

The 1,800-square-foot Royal Suite on the hotel’s seventh floor has the largest terrace—and therefore the best views of the Villa Borghese park and city skyline, plus a kitchen and study. Or ask for deluxe room 604, which also has an incredible view of the park from its balcony, plus cut-velvet armchairs and a marble bath.

Insider Tip:

Water treatments are the focus at the Prince spa, so don’t miss a visit to the wet zone for a Turkish bath, tropical rain shower, Finnish sauna, and thalasso bath that uses seawater.
