Italian hospitality brand AG Group announced an international collaboration with Hyatt Hotels. AG Group’s IL Tornabuoni, slated to open in Florence in October 2021, will be part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt. The Tribune in Rome will become part of JdV by Hyatt in October 2021.
The elegant boutique hotel, IL Tornabuoni, is located along Via Tornabuoni in the historic Palazzo Minerbetti. The property’s thoughtfully created interior design comes from Milan-based architect Andrea Auletta and reflects the area’s historic roots. The property will feature 62 guestrooms and suites. The rooms offer prime views of Florence’s popular landmarks, including the Duomo’s Cupola del Brunelleschi and Giotto Bell Tower. Guests can choose from five dining options: Il Magnifico Restaurant, Il Magnifico Cafè, Lucie Restaurant, Butterfly Terrace and La Cave cellar.
The Tribune is located off Via Veneto, close to many of Rome’s popular tourist attractions. The 52-room, family-friendly property is easily accessible to cultural venues and landmarks. The Tribune boasts a rooftop terrace with stunning views of the city alongside Italian cuisine.
“This new collaboration is an extremely important milestone in our shared ambition with Hyatt to continue to expand our footprint with new hotels and destinations,” said Andrea Girolami, president, AG Group.
