Hollywood may have given the world "the celebrity," but Italy gave celebrities glamour. From Federico Fellini to Sophia Loren, this country knows how to create and cater to the sophisticated set. As for where said jet-set stays while in Italy, this lavish hotel is a top choice. David Beckham bunked here while playing for AC Milan, and Madonna and her entourage check in when in town. The guest list is long and storied — Josephine Baker and Charlie Chaplin in days of yore; George Clooney and Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi today. This hotel has even enjoyed its own silver screen fame in Sophia Coppola's movie "Somewhere," starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning. Book a room during Fashion Week and you're sure to spot a known name, and most likely, they'll be staying in the 5,000-square-foot Presidential Suite, featuring original antique furniture, a dining room adorned with Limoges porcelain, Murano glass chandeliers and a private Pompeian-style spa with its own swimming pool.
