A storied landmark, the St. Regis Grand Hotel Rome was opened in 1894 by the renowned hotelier Cesar Ritz and home away from home over the years to numerous kings and queens and an almost surreal range of luminaries. Designed by architect Giulio Podesti to resemble a private palazzo, the austere façade opens to an opulent interior.
In designing the one-of-a-kind Bottega Veneta suite and Rooms “Veneta” and “Canova”, the character of the hotel was respected and the light of Rome was acknowledged through Bottega Veneta colors, material and furniture. A light palette, such as uniform khaki, linen, parchment, taupe and other colors are used that feel cool and airy. Similarly, floors are a natural-hued limestone – smooth and cool to the touch, with limited areas covered in New Zealand wool carpets .The suite which can be sold separately or connected with the 2 Rooms, consists of a foyer, three bedrooms (two with separate sitting areas), three baths, and a living room with fireplace and three large windows overlooking the city. Rooms are furnished with pieces from the furniture collection as well as home accessory details to finish, serving to further enhance the space and experience, while there is the additional presence of a few traditional pieces, such as an antique desk and classic armchairs reupholstered in linen or ultrasuede. A private, luxurious retreat in the heart of Rome, in one of the world’s truly historic hotels.
