Hotel Brunelleschi by Travel+Leisure:
“Named for the Italian Renaissance architect and engineer Filippo Brunelleschi, this historic property in the heart of Florence occupies the Byzantine Pagliazza Tower. (Fans of Dan Brown may recognize it as Robert Langdon’s hotel of choice in The Da Vinci Code and Inferno.) The 96 guestrooms range from deluxe doubles to the 1,237-square-foot penthouse apartment. Rooms have a modern aesthetic, with parquet floors, marble bathrooms, four-posted beds, and velvet headboards (in bright solid colors such as purple and red). At the on-site, seven-table restaurant Santa Elisabetta, exposed stone walls and wood-beamed ceilings set the stage for Florentine cuisine. The Tower Lounge Bar is the place for afternoon tea, a midday snack, and pre or post-dinner cocktails.
Room to Book: The Deluxe Executive Panorama for its 360-degree vista, which includes San Lorenzo, Santa Maria del Fiore, the Giotto Tower, and Palazzo Vecchio. Or the two-level Pagliazza Tower Suite, complete with Jacuzzi tub on the ground floor.
Insider Tip: Don’t miss the gelato tasting, available at the Tower Bar. Three flavors such as Piemonte hazelnut are paired with other sweets and spirits”
