We drove from the Palermo Airport to the hotel and, with some help from GPS, had little difficulty in locating Porta Felice. They offer street parking, but, we opted to pay for parking. Room was spacious and modern, with WiFi, though, this worked better in the restaurant. It took some getting used to their security and energy saving system, but, only a small annoyance. Breakfast was standard fare and dinner was very good. Room views from the back of the hotel are non-existent. Noise from cats and birds forced us to keep the windows closed and run the A/C; even then, they can wake you at night. Staff was very helpful and, in particular, Alessandra, who tried to help us locate the birth certificate for my wife's grandfather (born near Palermo). She seemed to take it as a personal challenge, but, unfortunately, we hit a wall without an actual day and month. We were also impressed at her ability to continue helping others, while waiting for assistance on the phone to the Office of Records. Hotel location is very accessible to all sites and restaurants, so, we never used the car until we left for Catania. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend to others.
