Lorenza Capannelli (Lorenza, The Magnificent) is the best manager of any hotel where I have been a guest. Hotel Santa Caterina is well located a short walk outside the walled city of Siena. The hotel has a gorgeous garden where we ate breakfast, which was an abundant variety of cold meats, cheeses, fruits, cereals, beverages, etc, attractively presented. Beverages were served at our tables in the garden. The room we had overlooked the garden and the ample sleeping space was in a loft, with a view of the garden from the bed. Lorenza was sensitive to my concern for my 12 year old granddaughter who was in the USA with a life threatening disease; she (Lorenza) allowed me to use her computer to keep in touch with the situation at home. When another pair of guests were checking out we learned from them that they had left in their room a book my wife was excited about reading. The departing guest said my wife could have the book. The concierge went to the room to retrieve the book, but it was no longer there because the room had been cleaned. Lorenza overheard the discussion, called the service person who was driving across town. That service person returned to the hotel, retrieved the book from the recycle bin and graciuosly presented it to my wife.
