Hotel Savoy

Hotel Savoy is a designer's dream ... literally. The contemporary and discreetly quirky interiors are the product of international designer Olga Polizzi, sister of Sir Rocco Forte of the eponymous hotel empire. (No surprise: This property flies under his banner.) Sculptures, curated photography, parquet floors and bathroom mosaics are just a few of the distinctive details guests will find depending on which room or suite they choose. House restaurant, Irene Firenze, enjoys a convivial location overlooking Piazza della Repubblica with outdoor dining in season. This is just the beginning when it comes to having the city at your doorstep, with the Duomo next door and the Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio a pleasant stroll away.
