Westin Excelsior - beautiful hotel, rooftop bar was great but had a lovely view of the aide of the river where people were doing god-knows-what. (Think graffiti and people wandering aimlessly) Despite the view the staff was tremendous and made every attempt to make us comfortable.

We came in October for 3 nights and could not have had a better welcome. The staff was so professional and friendly at the same time. Breakfast was perfect. Our room with the terrace on the Arno was fantastic. The location is perfect for ease of arrival, place on the river and central location for visits.

Our long weekend stay at Westin was perfect. From the initial booking, to check-in, to our stay and check out, everything was above our expectation. Every staff was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Never too much trouble and they go extra mile to help and accommodate. The hotel is very clean and definitely well prepared to the new Covid rules with temperature scan by the front door and hand sanitizer everywhere. We felt very safe staying there. Breakfast was really delicious and generous in portion. The view from the roof top Terrance restaurant and our room balcony was stunning!

We had 3 balcony views 😍 out onto the river and the ritz. The breakfast was amazing, out in what I think is the rooftop bar with best view of Florence. And I was treated like an absolute princess by Emanuele that kept moving me from one balcony to the next, to out of the sun all morning and waiting on me hand and foot like it's a 5*. Rooms and lobby are beautiful, and the hotel smells amazing. Great wine selection. Very close to city centre, 5mins away.
