My wife and I stayed at the The Westin Excelsior, Florence for 3 nights in mid July, 2007. We booked a river view room with an additional room next door for our college aged daughter. Both rooms were clean and had comfortable beds and furniture. The river view was a bit disappointing. Small window, but OK as the river looked more like a sewage canal at that point in its travel.
The property is a pretty, old structure that fronts a piazza and is across from the Grand Hotel.
It was hot in Florence, but the a/c in the rooms kept up quite nicely. I found the front desk staff and the concierge to be friendly and helpful. We never ate at the restaurant, but the bar staff was nice and the service was prompt.
We asked for and were provided recommendations for dinner all 3 nights. Each was excellent and within a few blocks of the hotel.
The hotel is pricey, but generally worth it. I'd stay there again.
