At Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, guests can elevate the senses with aristocratic suites and a private art collection, enjoy the luxury spa and dine in Rome’s only three-Michelin star restaurant, La Pergola. The hotel has gained an enviable reputation as one of the Eternal City’s leading hotels since opening its doors in 1963 and has hosted the “who’s who” of international royalty, politicians, celebrities and the jet set. We think it’s time you hopped on the guest list. Situated on a 15-acre private Mediterranean park, the hotel boasts panoramic views of Rome and Vatican City, making it the ideal destination for those seeking luxury, art, and culture. The Waldorf Astoria level of service is amazing yet, there’s a pull to get guests out into the city itself. The Vatican, The Coliseum, Trevi Fountain…just to name a few.
The hotel is home to one of the greatest private art collections in the world, with over a thousand treasures displayed throughout the hotel ranging from 16th century masters to contemporary art; from Nureyev’s ballet costumes to Galle glass. Suites are decorated with unique pieces of artwork and furnishings, including original Karl Lagerfeld sofas, rare 18th century antiques, and Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana paintings. With all of this at your fingertips, maybe all 370 luxurious guestrooms and suites each having their own private balcony with breathtaking views of Rome is only to have the city at your feet. You’ll decide once you arrive.
Since November 2005 the Michelin® Guide has honored Rome Cavalieri’s La Pergola, helmed by acclaimed chef Heinz Beck, with the coveted third star, the guide’s most prestigious rating. Imagine, you’ll truly be sleeping under the stars. The restaurant, set on the top floor of the hotel, with “gasp-worthy” views of the Eternal City, was Italy’s first five-star hotel restaurant to receive the award and the only Michelin-rated three-star restaurant in Rome today. We realized this was a very special place from the moment we entered.
At every turn, we found one more reason to keep to the confines of the hotel. The award-winning Cavalieri Grand Spa Club consists of nearly 27,000 square feet of absolute well-being. How can we leave that? After enjoying the spa’s many fabulous amenities, guests can relax near the stunningly impressive wood burning fireplace within the glass-domed indoor pool, while also viewing a cascading waterfall, hydro-massage pool, and Japanese stone walk, all of which display the many extraordinarily opulent qualities within this award-winning spa. Sorry Rome, we will have to come back again, and again to share some more timewith the city itself and of course, we will be staying here. From Rome Cavalieri’s dream location in the heart of Rome to its luxurious amenities, décor, cuisine, and more, staying at Rome Cavalieri will certainly be an unforgettable experience for you as well.
