DESCRIPTION

The Westin Excelsior occupies a superb location on the banks of the Arno River, right in the historic and artistic heart of the city. It’s just a short troll away from the famous historic monuments and artistic sights of Florence and its most exclusive boutiques. Just moments away are the Renaissance churches of Santa Maria Novella, San Lorenzo, and the Duomo, the scenic Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery and many other masterpieces.
Today, after a recent meticulous restoration, the Westin Excelsior’s 171 rooms offers guests its traditional charm; sumptuous interiors, transparent glass lanterns combined with the latest technology transform your events into memorable occasions. Situated at the ground floor, the hotel offers 3 easily adaptable, multifunctional rooms in order to accommodate cocktails and banquets.
The Vespucci and Intermediate rooms, usable together as contiguous, have a homogenous empire style and have been supplied by new furnishing. The Frescoes room with its direct access from the hall, welcomes the class customers that attend the Excelsior Hotel; it has walls embellished by eighteen-hundred century frescoes and with a magnificent inlaid floor of terracotta tiles. With an elegant jewel box-like glass enclosed roof top structure overlooking Florence, Se·sto On Arno Restaurant fuses Italian innovative cuisine and a stellar ambience. The bar, with its cocktail and tasty snacks, is the perfect spot for a quick break at any time of the day.
