The reason to come to Agrigento is to see the ruins, and you can't see them better than from the Hotel Athena (at least until you actually go in to the ruins site). This is a beautifully decorated and sited property, with most rooms featuring views of the temples. The pool is a delight in the hot weather, and the outdoor terrace is a great place to have dinner and enjoy the lighted splendor of the temples. We found the service only so-so, as the front desk didn't have maps of the area and was less than helpful when we were looking to visit the old town of Agrigento. Nice breakfast as well.
