A beautiful hotel, and one of the finest we have stayed in. Elegant rooms, clean and spacious. The hotel staff were friendly and most helpful. We loved it here.

For my first - and my only - trip to Florence, we couldn't have done better than staying at the Westin. The St. Regis, which is a stone's throw away, was much more expensive, and I can't imagine what they have to improve on. The Westin is 'old Florence' in many ways, with antique furniture, stunning views of the Arno River, and incredibly gracious staff. Love the piano in the bar every night, love the location. Florence is such a small city - at least all the tourist attractions are moments from each other. You can walk easily everywhere you want to go within 5- 20 minutes of the hotel, and then when you are at the hotel you are not in the teaming, noisy tourist crowds. Perfect spot. If you have not been to Florence, do not consider a taxi ride most places. The streets are virtually all 'pedestrian malls' simply because the tourists are everywhere!

Room Tip: Spring for the river view. Spring for the small terrace, especially if the weather is warm. It's...

The Westin Excelsior, Florence, is perfectly situated on the Arno River, a 10 minute walk to the historic center of the city and a 5 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. The hotel is most beautiful and the staff are extremely helpful and gracious.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view. The view is gorgeous.

My wife and I stayed here for several nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The location was amazing and rooms were great. The rooftop bar is a must do views were amazing. We will definately be back.

We lunched there yesterday - a perfect early Spring day to sample prawns + rolled chicken and drink mature local sangiovese whilst looking out over breathtaking Florence. Lunch here is a must to finish your time in Florence and to commit to coming back.
Food presentation was excellent - as was the service.
