Travel and Style: Rom
With the idea "Experience Rome in a New light" in mind, the Hotel St. Regis opens an unprecedented view of the eternal city to their guests.
The philosophy of the "St. Regis" hotels has always been to fulfill the customer's wishes and to guarantee a high standard of service around the clock, ever since John Jacob Astor IV opened his first hotel more than 100 years ago.
Even the "St. Regis Rome", reopened after a 40 million euro renovation, is no exception. Only a few steps away from the Quirinale, it plays its role as part of the Centro Storico in a special way: in cooperation with the curators of the Museo Nazionale Romano, the agency IF Unique Experience, which specializes in unforgettable experiences, and the hotel's butler team, guests get the unique opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of Rome. With a private visit to Palazzo Doria Pamphilj and recently discovered frescoes in the chapel of the Basilica of Santi XII Apostoli, a visit to the Biblioteca Casanatense outside opening hours and lunch in the park of the distinguished Villa Albani Torlonia. Double room 480 Euros, stregisrome.com
