Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts

101 Via Alberto Cadlolo
Rome , Italy
39 06 35091

Three miles outside the city center, this sprawling 1960 urban hotel with a 15-acre private park sits atop the highest hill in Rome, offering sweeping city views. (An efficient shuttle ferries guests to and from the city center.) Despite its mod exterior, the hotel exudes culture and sophistication; works from owner Angelo Guido Terruzzi’s art collection—which includes an original Tiepolo—adorn the halls. The 370 rooms are generously proportioned, with suites and Imperian floor rooms offering the most space (and style), in addition to a private elevator and a stable of business-friendly amenities. There’s an on-site spa and gym (and the city’s largest pool), but the hotel’s three-Michelin-starred panoramic restaurant, La Pergola—and chef Heinz Beck’s white asparagus au gratin with Parmesan mousse—is reason enough to consider this “out of the way” location.

Insider Tip: Dine in La Pergola’s rooftop garden, with the dome of St. Peter’s in full view.

Room to Book: East-facing Deluxes have balconies overlooking ancient Rome.

Formerly the Cavalieri Hilton.
