Set to reopen July 1, Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is nearly ready for business, specifically business and leisure travelers seeking modern French luxury accommodations in the heart of Rome.
Once a 19th-century Roman palazzo, the newly renovated hotel is within an easy walking distance of must-see sites like the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Villa Medici, but with a secluded, intimate feel of an old-world Roman villa. The new design boasts 78 rooms and suites; an all-new fitness center with added wellness programs; and three spacious meeting and event spaces.
After a day of meetings and exploring the city’s landmarks, enjoy some wine with a view at Settimo, the new rooftop lounge and restaurant. Look out over the city with an uncompromised view of St. Peter’s Basilica or down at the pristine Villa Borghese gardens.
Architecture buffs and foodies will especially enjoy the elegant blend of opulent design, romantic history and a laser-focus on fine cuisine and wine pairings, as only the French and Italians could provide. Luckily, this hotel offers the best of both.
Book early for accommodations beginning July 1, at $390 a night. Breakfast is not included, but read more about the services and amenities the hotel’s early guests enjoy.
