Hotel in Lucca--especially nice!

We are planning a trip to Italy in June next year. We will be renting a tiny apartment in Venice, leaving Venice on Saturday and flying out of Florence on Tuesday afternoon. For our last three nights I'd like to go to Lucca, where we have never visited (we've been to Florence many times). Since we will have stayed in a tiny apartment, I'd like to end the trip in a really nice hotel--air conditioning, big room, full service, good breakfast. We are traveling by train. Any suggestions?

Hotel Ilaria is a very nice hotel in Lucca but room size could be a problem. I had a single room which was very small for the price but bigger rooms are shown on their website. Specify that you want one of those.

We've been visiting Lucca on and off since 1969 and stayed in many of it's hotels both within and outside the walls and have to admit we've never found anything close to what you're looking for. Maybe others have but for us the charm of the city has been it's characterful accommodation without the extras.

I'd be interested to read further responses but maybe you'd be prepared to accept a compromise?

You could look this over and see if any jump out at you, look at reviews and photos and then ask about some specific hotels here on the forum:

Locanda Sant Agostino definitely meets your requirements. The rooms are very large and lovely. Wonderful breakfast on a gorgeous terrace.

If you want a large room, good breakfast and great location look no further than the San Luca Palace Hotel in Lucca. We recently stayed there for 3 nights and could not fault it. A little on the pricey side but worth it if you are only there for 3 nights.
