Four Seasons Hotel Firenze
Address: Borgo Pinti 99
Neighborhood: San Marco
It took seven years to convert the Renaissance-era Palazzo della Gherardesca, its 12-acre private park, and a nearby 16th-century convent into Florence's newest five-star hotel, but the results confirm that it was worth the effort. Guests of the hotel's 117 rooms (including 45 suites) are treated to all sorts of plush amenities including an outdoor heated pool, beauty and hair salon, spa, and fitness center. While all this might have been easily accomplished elsewhere, it's quite a feat that it could happen in such a historical setting, all within steps of the city's major landmarks.
