My second stay at the St. Regis was even better than the first. I stayed on points and my friend and I were in room 111....a fantastic, large room overlooking the Arno with a view of the Ponte Vecchio from the balcony. We sat on that balcony each night and had a glass of prosecco and reflected on our beautiful days in this incredible city. As was my experience on my last visit to the hotel a year ago, the staff was cordial and efficient. The newly renovated St. Regis can be intimidating when you first enter the opulent lobby. But, in fact, everyone is very down to earth and friendly. The restaurant/bar was quiet and not very interesting the entire time we were there. Our waiter at the St. Regis said that changes were in the works for the restaurant and bar there that would liven things up a bit. But for now, if you go across the piazza to the Westin Excelsior and go to the rooftop, you will find a vibrant nightlife scene and be treated to one of the most magnificent views of Firenze I have ever seen. There were a surprising number of Fiorentini there....they might have actually outnumbered the tourists. Highly recommended extremely high end hotel experience. We balanced this with a stay at a very modest b&b in Lucca and a week at a villa in Forte dei Marmi, so we had a nice taste of all levels of accomodation.
