Unfortunately my mother and I were only in town for 1 night but here are a few observations about the hotel as well as Florence in general.
Before we even arrived in Italy, I had been emailing the hotel on a regular basis just to find out more information about Florence as we were on a very short time frame and wanted to maximize our time. I have never received better help from a hotel then I did from the The Westin Excelsior Florence. Through their front desk I was able to book not only our train ticket to Rome, but I pre-booked our tickets to the Uffuzi Museum as well as booked us spots on a Tuscan wine tour. I very much appreciated their help.
The room itself was absolutely huge! I think even for North American Standards as well. The hotel itself is situated right alongside the Orno River and is very close to the main attractractions (Uffuzi Museum, Santa Maria Church, the train station). We did not use a lot of the hotel facilities to be honest (any of the restaurants etc) but did frequent the gelato place down the street haha.
This place was pricy although we got a good deal as Starwood Hotels had a special on in the summer. If it were not on sale I am not sure if we would have stayed there to be honest- it was very pricy. But worth it...
A few things about Florence- it is stunning and full of history. I wish we got to stay longer! I highly recommend checking out a museum and the shopping, as well take a day trip to Pisa and check out a wine tour if you can. The wine tour was one of the highlights of my Italy trip for sure!
