The Four Seasons Florence

The Four Seasons Florence

If you take two Renaissance Palaces in the city center of Florence, which were previously under private ownership for centuries; spend seven years converting the grand buildings into a luxury hotel; and offer discerning guests the opportunity to relax in this new sanctuary featuring an art-filled Renaissance palazzo, a private park and airy garden vistas, you can only be referring to one place: Four Seasons Hotel Florence.

Situated just a short stroll away from the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo, Four Seasons Hotel Florence offers 116 unique, sun-filled guest rooms and suites. The hotel is decorated in original Italian artworks that have been meticulously restored to original perfection. The ground floor of the Four Seasons Hotel Florence has been created from the 15th-century Palazzo della Gherardesca; just past the hotel’s main entrance is a glass covered courtyard which is surrounded by bas-reliefs depicting vivid classical scenes. Even the hotel’s business center is covered in frescoes and a modern meeting room has been created from the palace’s original chapel. Ultimately, guests are afforded an original experience that blends Renaissance artistry with high-tech comforts. The welcomingly residential rooms and suites are bright, airy and drenched in a warm mélange of Tuscan autumn colors like brown and green. Stunning views include neighboring street life, surrounding palazzos and a plethora of well-groomed gardens. The most discerning guests can opt for the Royal Suite, located in the nobles’ quarters of the Palazzo della Gherardesca; the suite is said to capture “the very essence of living as a noble Florentine family in times gone by.” Each room of the Royal Suite displays stunning vaulted ceilings, frescoes and Capodimonte Maioliche-style ceramic floors. French windows overlook Palazzo Park and Borgo Pinti, a narrow and picturesque street. Naturally, dining at the Four Seasons Florence Hotel is an experience unto itself; on the ground floor of the Palazzo della Gherardesca is Il Palagio, where Head Chef Vito Mollica serves a seasonal menu with a contemporary twist. One of his specialties is homemade pasta, such as ricotta-and-mint ravioli in a lamb sauce. During clement weather, guests can dine alfresco on the restaurant’s terrace. A separate space in the center of Il Palagio is home to the Winery, which features a 400 bottle wine display and an intriguing menu of local dishes served in small assaggini portions. Additionally, the Four Seasons Hotel Florence is the only hotel in the heart of Florence with its own on-site spa. The spa offers luxurious treatment rooms, relaxation lounges, whirlpools and a range of pampering therapies including Iris Sensations, which utilizes locally harvested purple irises to exfoliate, soften and remove impurities from the skin. For a one-of-a-kind, enchanted city sanctuary experience in the heart of Florence, the Four Seasons Hotel Florence is the only choice.

Additionally, the Four Seasons Hotel Florence features THG luxury faucetry and accessories within its bath environments. The Parisian manufacturer was a natural choice when designing a hotel of such striking beauty and sheer opulence.
