Amazing hotel in the heart of Florence. Stayed in room 319 - huge room and 3 people - so very elegant. The 6th floor restaurant and bar Sesio are world famous and best views in the city. The Concierge Massimo is everything one should be for this position, a consummate professional.

My husband and I recently stayed here as a treat for my 50th birthday. We were welcomed by Laura on reception who very friendly and helpful. We had booked a premium room but were offered a junior suite with river view for an extra supplement. This was well worth it as our view was amazing. We had a huge terrace... More

I love this hotel. You feel like you are staying in your very own Palazzo! Very friendly, top-notch service, beautiful rooms, artwork everywhere, super-comfortable beds, spectacular views from rooftop bar, fitness center is well-equiped. Expensive, but if you can get a reasonable rate it is well worth it. Wifi costs, but I get free because of SPG membership. The location... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in Florence and the people who worked at this hotel went above and beyond. They were helpful, kind and always there for us. We had an issue with our room the first night and without even a question they moved us t another room. The hotel was very clean... More

This is definitely one of the nicest hotels in Florence!! It's located right on the Ponte Vecchio in the best location! The concierge and staff were so helpful, we had a million questions and they were so attentive. We originally came over to the Westin by accident, the hotel we were supposed to stay at the air conditioner had broken... More

Stayed here on a rewards trip with my employer. What a beautiful property! Rooms were tastefully decorated and hotel as a whole was well kept and clean. Service was great and I slept great each night I was here. Our room faced the piazza over hotel entrance, looking right onto the Arno river. Ponte Vecchio and Duomo are each within... More

Fab location and beautiful historic building. Unfortunately, some service hiccups which could have been easily avoided with better systems / processes. Andrea the concierge was excellent, as was one of his colleagues (I wish I could remember his name). Great to have the concierge pre arrange tickets to Uffizzi and Accademia, also dinner reservations

Well we came to this hotel after spending a week out in the beautiful Tuscan countryside where it was quiet and beautiful. In retrospect, I would have stayed in the countryside and traveled into Florence by train. The Westin Excelsior was a very nice hotel, large rooms and located right on the river. I did think the noise was a... More
