Sophisticated five-star sleep near the Spanish Steps with an impressive rooftop restaurant and cocktail bar
The hotel’s swanky, modern lobby showcases vivid charcoal and plum furniture, sumptuous curtains, sleek polychromatic marble floors and a floor-to-ceiling library of art books. Black-and-white photographs of iconic Italian stars adorn the walls. Wander the halls to discover all kinds of design surprises, including a grand neoclassical floor mosaic left over from the original 19th-century owners.
Bed and Bath
Room design and color schemes range from stately and traditional (regal hues, heavy curtains, dark wood furniture and neoclassical flourishes) to intimately lit modern crash pads with pops of slate-gray and lemon-yellow. Sofitel's signature MyBeds combine mattresses and featherbeds atop slatted bases. Bose stereo systems and iPod docks come standard, and the spacious marble bathrooms have showers and tubs, large vanity mirrors and luxe Hermès bath products.
The award-winning rooftop restaurant, La Terrasse Cuisine & Lounge, is the hotel’s star attraction. The sleek, modern space offers panoramic views from practically every table, and the outdoor terrace is the place to watch the sun set over the Eternal City. The roof is fully retractable to take advantage of sunny days. The menu combines the best of Italian and French cuisine, and the innovative cocktails are simply divine. For breakfast, head to the cavernous ground floor room, where a full spread of delectable regional specialties awaits, including a special, fun section of foods for kids.
In the Area
The Sofitel’s address is one of the finest in Rome, right down the road from the lovely Villa Medici and the Spanish Steps and within a minute’s walk of Via Veneto’s posh boutiques and restaurants. Those looking to burn calories from Italian overindulgence should grab a jogging map and iPod from the concierge and weave through the Villa Borghese gardens. On the edge of the park lies the Pincian Hill. Head to the Piazzale Napoleone I terrace for one of the best panorama photo ops in Rome. Overlooking Piazza del Popolo, the views stretch as far as the Vatican and the Pantheon.
