Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto
Old World details meet modern luxury at this Rome property
One of the great benefits of a stay at the hotel is its location, on Via Veneto. The hotel is just a 15-minute drive away from the Colosseum as well as the Vatican, and is within walking distance of the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and Rome’s high-end shopping streets.
Highlights of the property include fashion-forward art-deco design touches, such as a rooftop hangout and the glass ceiling of the lobby, over which water flows. Keep your eye out for the original 20th century artwork on display as well – works by Picasso and Miro can be found hanging on the wall in discreet places.
The hotel spa, Aqva, features a Vichy shower and pool, and the front desk controls mood lighting in the rooms that brings bold hues in for “color therapy.”
At the Magnolia restaurant, a Japanese chef with a Michelin star serves up Italian dishes three nights a week.
