A grand hotel, in the broadest sense of the word, it is located just minutes from the city’s most iconic monuments. But its guests can enjoy the calm and relaxation of a great oasis since the property spreads through more than 6 acres of lush Mediterranean greenery, a haven of peace and tranquility in the middle of the bustling Italian capital that never sleeps.
Rome Cavalieri is more than a 5-star hotel, its Rome’s quintessential luxury retreat, featuring an art collection that rivals that of many museums, a spa with superb services and standards of luxury, style, and hospitality that make it stand out among the most elegant European hotels.
Their accommodations include a variety of room types including guest rooms, suites and executive rooms further categorized as: Premium Deluxe, Imperial, and Suites. The Imperial rooms were designed for travelers who always demand the best. They are very spacious, with wonderful views of the Vatican, (the best views from a hotel suite) and a large balcony to enjoy a luscious breakfast or an afternoon snack. These rooms have their own separate entrance and elevator, travertine marble bathrooms, toiletries by Salvatore Ferragamo, double soundproof doors, automatic shutters, classic furnishings, and access to the exclusive Imperial Club, whose facilities include complimentary cocktails and free passes to the Grand Spa. This huge, opulent Ancient Roman-themed spa covers over 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor pools, Turkish baths and two clay tennis courts.
Its five suites: Penthouse, Planetarium, Petronius, Napoleon, Corner, Vista and Alcove, evoke the best days of Roman splendor. All rooms have been updated to include enhanced lavish interiors, stunning artwork, beautiful wallpaper, and wood floors. Some suites have marble fireplaces and precious antique furnishings.
Inside the hotel, the cuisine is of the highest quality. The magnificent La Pergola restaurant, one of Italy’s best with three Michelin stars, offers highly creative Italian fare in a lavish environment. Under the direction of celebrated Chef Heinz Beck, every item on La Perloga’s menu is innovative and exciting. You can choose to compliment this exquisite meal with a selection of over 60,000 world-class bottles of wine and a water list featuring 45 choices.
A unique experience at the Cavalieri is their lovely high tea, featuring a selection of finger sandwiches, scones, pastries, and fruit sushi, all served in Vermeil porcelain. The room is adorned with a beautiful Giovanni Battista Tiepolo triptych painted in 1725, valued at $8 million. These are the three most precious paintings in their entire collection and a treasure of museum quality.
Moreover, pet owners are in luck because the Rome Cavalieri offers the Very Important Pet option, with special menus for your pet, daily walks through the lush garden, and access to the nearby Domus Aventine spa for dogs. Who could ask for anything more? ■
