There is no place in the US, or few in the world, which can match the elegance, history, and location of this remarkable Hotel. It simply oozes luxury and classic style. The lake views and gardens/estate grounds are beautiful. While the grandeur of the hotel takes you back to the centuries of its celebrated history, it's in great condition.
Our room was on an upper floor (318) and had a wonderful lake view. The buffet breakfast is great, but we found ourselves simply opening our windows for the lake view and and enjoying a continental breakfast in our room, and repeating for cocktails or a glass of wine at the end of the day.
The Grill and the main dining room serve great choices and the service is impeccable.
The complimentary minibar is stuffed with snacks and many beverage choices and replenished on demand. Room service is quick. We never waited for ice more than 5 minutes.
Villa D'Este is very expensive, but I have to admit worth it.
Nearby Cernobbio is a charming little village with water taxi service to several other stops on Lake Como. The city of Como offers very little upscale shopping and for the most part has not much charm. But Bellagio is 180 degrees literally and figuratively speaking.
