Rather than the usual restrained modern style of Rocco Forte, this 104-room grand luxury hotel near the top of the Spanish Steps has a palatial, maximalist décor. Designer Olga Polizzi collaborated with Tommaso Ziffer to create a look that draws inspiration from ancient Rome and the Renaissance. Opt for a Deluxe Room Panoramic View or a Panoramic Suite with Terrace, which features a terrace running the length of the suite, accessed by French doors and furnished with a settee and dinette. Rooms with courtyard views are a good alternative. Visually striking dining and drinking venues include Da Sistina for Roman classics, Mosaico for creative Italian cuisine, cozy Julep Herbal & Vermouth Bar with an adjacent candlelit lounge, and Cielo, a scenic rooftop terrace bar serving Asian-Italian tapas. A basement spa with a sauna, steam room, salt room and hydropool offers excellent treatments.
