The Duomo Presidential Suite
The Duomo Presidential Suite is a large two-bedroom suite occupying its own wing of The Savoy. A distinctly Florentine aesthetic, the suite is opulently decorated with bronze tables and gold leaf mirrors made by local designer, Il Bronzetto. Large windows let natural light flood the rooms, and provide splendid views of Brunelleschi’s stunning Duomo. The turquoise colour palette and sylvan wallpaper are accentuated by handmade paisley patterned blankets in fine Italian fabrics, which sit atop the magnificent king-sized bed. The living room features bespoke book cases from Castorina, filled with works by Italian authors, and playful Timorous Beastie-covered cushions. In the dining room, guests can enjoy a drink from the private fully serviced bar. The Carrara marble and mosaic-tiled bathrooms have separate bathtubs, walk-in showers, double washbasins and luxurious Forte Organics bath products.
What would be your advice for a first-time guest visiting?
Discovering Florence early morning or by night and live the city like a local would do: enjoy a morning walk in the fascinating Oltrarno area, stop at an open-air market, cook a pasta dish, enjoy a Vespa ride, taste a Negroni as aperitif at Irene’s bar and end your day with a Florentine steak and delicious gelato.
How would you like to be remembered? As a dream that came true.
What is your suite motto?
Each guest is unique to me and my priority is to offer the best Florentine and luxury experience ever, ever and make him live memorable and unforgettable moments at Hotel Savoy in celebration of the new chapter in the Hotel’s history as renovated expression of luxury hospitality
What is your biggest indulgence in captivating new guests? I have a series of precious and exclusive destination experiences that I would like my guests to try. Exploring doors not open to the public, going off the beaten path, stimulating your senses ranging from fragrances to culinary delights…these are just a few examples.
Is there a famous name, a particular street or monument that you most identify with? What inspired your style?
My style is inspired by the stunning Brunelleschi Dome of course, from which I took my name. My style comes from the entire city of Florence- its history, its culture, its fashion, its traditions, its centuries-long heritage of enchanting design. Director of Design, Olga Polizzi, has enhanced my timeless elegance using contemporary themes hints of the Renaissance and the very best of Florentine artisans.
