THE ROMAN SKY IS THE LIMIT
Launching May 23rd, the Hotel de la Ville, a Rocco Forte hotel, is the most awaited opening of the year in Rome and promises the ultimate views over the eternal city. Indeed the historical structure artfully spread over several levels means that the suites and large terraces are quite unrivalled in town offering a totally unique high rise angle and the grandest of panoramas.
Architect Tommaso Ziffer has collaborated with Director of Design Olga Polizzi in bringing to life the aesthetics and cultural sentiments of the 18th and 19th century Grand Tour of Europe in a contemporary key. The result is a bold and vibrant feel which pervades the building offering a sumptuous theatrical set reflective of Roman intricacies throughout the ages up to modern days.
The creative atmosphere culminates in the Signature Suites, soon to be unveiled as the most panoramic in town. Strong colour schemes with soft and bright tones are tactfully combined with an eclectic collection of local contemporary craftmanship, bold furniture, large digital representations of ancient art and rich tapestries. “A room is a set for people’s lives, a true work of art in itself” states Ziffer whilst commenting on the suites at the Hotel de la Ville.
The Canova Suite, named after the famous Neo Classical sculptor, blends high art and lavish style to elegant effect. Spacious living areas, featuring a sitting room and a king sized bedroom combine light colour shades with luxurious furnishings and a curated collection of objects of art. The Roma Suite offers an elegant apartment in the heart of the city and a perfect solution for families.
Sitting on the 8th floor and reached by private elevator, the Suite De La Ville is the hotel’s crown jewel, offering extraordinary space, a curated art collection and antique furniture presented in contemporary flare. The private dining room and the two large terraces with panoramic views over Rome make the Suite De La Ville ideal for memorable evenings and entertaining. It is also perfect for families, with the option to connect with the Roma and Canova suites on the seventh floor to make a lavish multi-bedroom residence.
The three Signature Suites at Hotel de la Ville are fully equipped for entertaining and are served by a private butler and a dedicated concierge who will tailor unique Rocco Forte Suite Experience benefits and unique adventures to match the guests’ wishes.
