Grand Hotel Palace

Artful elegance in the heart of Rome
Late architect Marcello Piacentini’s résumé reads like an anthology in Italian design — Reggio’s Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia, Genoa’s Arco della Vittoria and Brescia’s Piazza della Vittoria are three of his more revered works — and one of its standout chapters, Grand Hotel Palace, sits in the heart of Rome. Standing confidently at vias Veneto and Liguria, the curved building commands your attention.

Once inside, your eyes are drawn to 1920s frescoes, 1970s colors and unexpectedly shaped furnishings that could have come from any decade in between. With its bold look, an internationally influenced spa and vibrant culinary flavors, Grand Hotel Palace is a feast for the senses.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • With all of the obvious art deco nods on the wall and in the boldly colored chairs in the lobby, you’d think you were in a funky Parisian salon — were it not for an elegant chandelier hanging in the middle of it all.
  • Though art plays a vital role throughout the Rome hotel, it is the undoubted centerpiece of a dining experience at Ristorante Cadorin & Lounge Bar. The spectacular Guido Cadorin-drawn frescoes capture a Roman high-society function.
  • At dinnertime, indulge in polished dishes at Cadorin like green-apple-stuffed guinea fowl, gnocchi with chestnut and taggiasca olives, and other refined Mediterranean dishes.
  • The hotel’s three-room spa provides a Zen sanctuary with deep-wood wall paneling, a large Jacuzzi and exotic statues.

  • Opt for an alfresco lunch on the hotel’s terrace for some of the people-watching on Via Veneto.

The Rooms
  • The 87 rooms and suites captivate with pink-and-gray-striped wallpaper and curvy benches found in the Superior, Deluxe and Deluxe Executive units.
  • Suites add a post-modernist touch with black-and-white-striped furniture in their living areas.
  • The Signature Suite, the hotel’s most spacious accommodation, features a green-walled bedroom and black-marbled floor.

  • All accommodations manage to successfully blend comfort and style by weaving in art-deco accents while still providing amenities such as marble bathrooms, bathrobes and comfortable beds.

  • The Superior rooms feature a study area with views of Via Veneto or Via Liguria.
