Very friendly helpful staff and the room was very clean and high end. Location was incredible and everything was a short uber or walking distance. Very happy with my choice to stay there and it's worth the price.

Overall rating : good. We got stuck on an elevator. Got on elevator on the 7th floor. Requested lobby. Elevator stopped on 4th floor- no one got on. Doors closed. It felt like the elevator was moving, but after several minutes, it didn't reach lobby. Finally doors opened once again on 4th floor. I reported this to the front desk...

Employees insurance charges on my final bill really bothered me. My bill was nearly $300 more than I expected with all of your mystery charges. For that reason alone I won't be returning and will tell friends and family not to do the same. Don't get me wrong, the service and location was great, however, the hotel itself wasn't that...

The service is very poor. The reception folks would need to be more professional, we often feel that we disturb them... The loby looks so empty and no life... the bathroom is definitely too small Although, the rooms are very nice and confortable

I was shocked to find out I owed an extra $29 a night for a resort fee. No where did it say this when booking on Expedia. Expedia actually showed a line stating "no hidden fees". The hotel was decent but did not include any extras that would warrent any type of resort fee.

My daughter and I stayed here while attending a show nearby. The room was lovely and quiet. It looked pretty much identical to the photo. TV was HUGE. They provided Neutrogena products in the bathroom - they were hard to use as the bottles were too short. Over all nice friendly staff, very helpful and attentive.

Excellent will stay when I come back in town. Was a work trip and a girl weekend trip too. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was great so the beds were comfy. There is a $29 day fee that I thought might be a little high but still would come back again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Florence offers 189 guest rooms, where the Italian-inspired theme continues in the rooms' furniture selection featuring cut velvet lounge chairs and large dramatic Peony flowers painted on the guest bed headboards. The flowers, reminiscent of Florentine flower markets, pair elegantly with bed pillows featuring the Fleur-des-Lis, the symbol of Florence. Each guestroom highlights the uniqueness of the building's architecture, featuring one-off pieces in each room, while the portraits in the guest room corridors are inspired by the Renaissance and evoke the spirit of art, literature, and learning. The whimsical photos in the guest room corridors were created by Liz Heras, a well-known Los Angeles-based graphic artist who creates custom graphic artwork for large-scale hotel projects nationwide. With ample room for the family, an intimate backdrop for romance, and upgraded amenities, Villa Florence will keep you connected to home. ... more   less
