25th Wedding Anniversary

Would recommend Fri, Jun 8, 2012
We booked the Premium Deluxe with river view, because of the photos of the rooms, two full windows which open on to a small balcony over looking the river sounded perfect, unfortunately what we got was a small window will only partial opening so restricted view. Apparently there is three rooms which come under the Premium Deluxe heading two are mentioned in your description, the second has a mini gym, the third which is not mentioned is the one we stayed in, if we had known this we would not have booked. This was a huge disappointment to both of us.These rooms are not cheap, but they should not be the same price for three completely different rooms.

"Florence at Your Fingertips"

Would recommend Sun, Mar 21, 2010
We spent time seeing the major tourist attractions of Florence. The hotel staff will be happy to book reservations for you or assist in any way! Without a doubt, the famous Westin "Heavenly Bed" made for a good nights's rest! Plan on a good 15 minute walk to the Duomo and the large shopping market.

Money saver

You will find pastry shops about every third store front in the city. Stop there to buy breakfast and wonderful sandwiches at lunch. It is a great money saver as everything is expensive! The food is delicious! Spend the money to buy Rick Steves' travel book on Florence or any European city before you leave on your trip, It tells you absolutely everything you could want to know!!!

Great location

Would recommend Wed, Sep 16, 2009
The location was great. 5-10 min walk from the train station and very close to a lot of the attractions. The bathroom was the only negative experience for me. There were body hair from the previous guests in the tub and on some of the towels. yuck.


Our dinner at ZaZa was one of the best meals we had in Italy. It's about a 10-15 min walk, but well worth it.
