Amazing palace but overheated in winter, The Westin Excelsior Florence is a hotel that has great amenities and accommodation, if only it could just cool down so you could be a little more comfortable!
Named to Condé Nast Traveler Gold Lists and listed as Best Hotel in Florence in 2009, The Westin Excelsior, Florence blends rich Florentine history with modern accommodations. Located on Piazza Ognissanti, nearby to the famed Ponte Vecchio, and the Uffizi Gallery. All of the 171 guest rooms at The Westin Excelsior, Florence are elegantly decorated, offering a taste of Florentine tradition.
Modern conveniences like High-Speed Internet Access and Wireless Internet access in all public areas is standard. The amazing and wonderful palace and I could go on and on writing positively about it: The service, the decoration, the ambiance, everything is simply outstanding, but unfortunately, the hotel is overheated and we had to open the windows all night long to be able to sleep. You can’t even wear a shirt during your hotel walks — a t-shirt is recommended.
