St. Regis Grand, Rome
A stone’s throw from both the Quirinal Hill and the Baths of Caracalla, the St. Regis Grand is a respite from the centro storico fray. A perfect merger of historic Roman splendor and white-glove American service, the former Grand Hotel has become a jewel in the St. Regis crown. Its 161 rooms and suites are suitably vast, with design that mixes Regency, Louis XVI and NeoClassical details. The bar is stylish and serves up matchless Negronis; the Kami Spa offers Asian-based treatments that would earn our admiration anywhere in the world, let alone the spa-starved Eternal City.
