New Rome Hotel: The Portrait Suites

A sumptious new hotel opened in Rome almost two weeks ago. The Portrait Suites is the first Roman property from Florence-based Lungarno Hotels (which is affiliated with the Ferragamo shoe family). Florence’s Hotel Lungarno is one of my favorite places to stay in the city; a close tie with JK Place). Both exude understated elegance.

The Portrait Suites occupies an Italian-style townhouse close to the Via Condotti, Rome’s best shopping street and just a stone’s throw from the Spanish Steps. The property’s small size (just 14 suites and studios) allows for extremely personalized service. I haven’t seen photos of the hotel’s interiors but I can only imagine it exemplifies the finest style and design.

An inquiry to spend a night at the hotel in July yielded the following rates – a superior suite is 290 euros per night and a suite is 720 euros per night. There are options in between. I plan to test out The Portrait Suites firsthand on a visit to Rome this fall. Stay tuned…
