4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We loved our room. It was very small, but intimate and quiet. Not much of a view because we were on the interior of the building, but it was quiet--no traffic or street noise. The only issue we had was the shower. The shower walls (clear glass) are built into a corner to save space. Unfortunately there was a 1/4... More

We've stayed at this hotel before, but this time when we arrived there was a long line to check in-the young lady (Jaryn) behind the desk had a very difficult man that didn't really speak English very well and didn't understand all the tax charges...She was amazing and never lost her cool. She just kept smiling and explaining to him... More

The room for a couple is a little small, but ok ! The wi-fi could be a faster, but it worked all time. Silent and comfort and the friendly staff were the highlights ! The rate did not include the breakfast , very uncommon in US, but there a lot a good options nearby.

Really close to the tourist traps. We stood here for the night and had a good nights sleep. I am glad we got to see just a traditional city hotel. It was fun and staff helped to make our stay pleasant. Thank you.

Very good Hotel at 1 Minute from Union Square. Good for any excursion or for shopping. Rooms are clean, good service. The only "negative" point was the room temperature in the night. We don't like it to cold and the conditioner didn't heat properly. But this last aspect, maybe depends on the room we had.

It's not their fault that Oracle was in town but price gouging was at its best. $700 per night for the tiniest room we ever stayed at. Also 20-25 minutes to get your car was a hassle. It was very clean and comfortable and the location is great. I guess it was just bad timing!

Dear RGLNashua, Thank you for the feedback; yes, Oracle did push our prices, as well as the other hotels i the city, up due to high demand! Please know our rates do fluctuate during the year and we always offer discounts to our repeat guests! We hope to welcome you back again very soon! Best, Christine and the Villa Florence... More

I was looking forward to staying here as it is close to Union Square and so very central. The deluxe king room we had was disappointing. Didn't feel very deluxe. Cleanliness of the room borderline. A little dated. No bath robes. But worst of all was the noise. We were asked if we would like a view and of course... More

The staff is what sets this place apart. Extremely accommodating and friendly. I requested a room with a view as opposed to a "quiet" room, and this worked with earplugs. (Union Square is lively in the night hours right outside the window.) Be careful that you don't accidentally drink the $15 bottle of water on the nightstand - that was... More

The rooms are very clean and modern. Love the decorations. Hotel staff are very accommodating. They also had a champagne welcome which was very nice. The only issue I had were the sheets. They are not the most comfortable I've slept on.

1. The hotel overcharged me against the confirmation provided by Expedia. I have requested a refund of the overcharged amount. 2. The Expedia confirmation stated that our room would be 'Deluxe, 1 Queen Bed'. The room was quite inferior to deluxe and this was acknowledged by hotel management during our stay. The bed was acknowledged by hotel management to meet... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Florence offers 189 guest rooms, where the Italian-inspired theme continues in the rooms' furniture selection featuring cut velvet lounge chairs and large dramatic Peony flowers painted on the guest bed headboards. The flowers, reminiscent of Florentine flower markets, pair elegantly with bed pillows featuring the Fleur-des-Lis, the symbol of Florence. Each guestroom highlights the uniqueness of the building's architecture, featuring one-off pieces in each room, while the portraits in the guest room corridors are inspired by the Renaissance and evoke the spirit of art, literature, and learning. The whimsical photos in the guest room corridors were created by Liz Heras, a well-known Los Angeles-based graphic artist who creates custom graphic artwork for large-scale hotel projects nationwide. With ample room for the family, an intimate backdrop for romance, and upgraded amenities, Villa Florence will keep you connected to home. ... more   less
