The Neoclassical Hotel Exedra is one of those beautiful testaments to early 1900s Italy, celebrating the country's unification and its ties to antiquity as it is located on the site of the 3rd-century Baths of Diocletian. Its 238 guestrooms are designed in either classic splendor or contemporary chic with high ceilings, marble floors, silk wall coverings, and faux-crocodile headboards. Rooms located in the 16th-century Clementino (granary) also contain exposed brick and original wooden beams. Renowned designer Adam Tihany is responsible for the hotel's Tazio Restaurant, which celebrates the Fellini era of Rome with snapshots of Italian celebrities by the first paparazzo Tazio Secchiaroli. Upstairs, the rooftop pool overlooks the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, designed by Michelangelo.
