Traveling to Rome, Italy, anytime soon? If not, feel free to wanderlust over the city’s ancient architecture and charming piazzas. Do the Eternal City some justice and stay somewhere iconic and timeless on your next family trip.


Hotel Hassler Roma

Celebrating 125 years in business, the Hotel Hassler Roma is a Roman landmark. Perched atop the famous Spanish Steps, the Hotel Hassler hosted entertainment giants from Charlie Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier to George Clooney and Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Take in sweeping views of the city over lunch, or grab a Hassler lunch box to go to keep the kids fueled up for a day of city excursions. Head out shopping with the family and enjoy the hotel’s easy access to some of best dining and shopping in the city. You’ll have no problem getting around and finding your way back to the hotel, as it’s located above one of the most famous sights in the city. After a long day of walking, head to the spa to unwind before dinner overlooking the vastly beautiful and captivating city.


St. Regis, Rome

As one would expect from a name tantamount with extravagance, the St. Regis Rome embodies modern luxury at the center of old-world opulence. Explore the hotel’s impeccable design, surrounding guests in lavishness and stately charm — all while providing all the comforts of today.


Explore Rome along guided tours after breakfast and make it back in time for afternoon tea at the hotel by 3 p.m. Choose from classic, regal designs or opt for a more modern room. Either way, you’ll be a guest just like the late King of Spain, King Alfonso XIII who lived in the hotel 1934–1941.


Residenza Napoleone III

Once the home of Emperor Napoleon III in 1830, the Residenza Napoleone III boasts extravagant beauty and historic charm. Only open to the public since 2002, the boutique hotel consists of two apartments and is incredibly exclusive.

Bring the family and feel like royalty surrounded by works of art, marble, ornate wood, windows and chandeliers in the Napoleone Suite with a spare room called the Blue Room, or take to the Roof Garden Suite for two.


Hotel de Russie

Climb the iconic steps of Hotel de Russie and stay in the Picasso Suite for an exceptional Roman experience. Enjoy personalized concierge services and private garden dining with a view of the city’s finest.


Get the kids their own deluxe room down the hall or double up in the Popolo Suite overlooking the Piazza del Popolo. The vintage touches and modern finesse boast the best of both worlds for the whole family.
