The typical Italian Gothic building, the Cathedral of Florence, is dedicated to “Santa Maria del Fiore”. The church was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio (c1245-1302) who considerably enlarged the existing religious structure. Finished around 1367, the Cathedral was completely covered by coloured marbles like the earlier Baptistery, except for the façade that remained unfinished and was terminated only in the 19th century.
The hotel incorporated inviting art display and colour throughout the hotel, from the historical paintings on ceramic walls behind restaurant lounge, black and white framed photographs displayed throughout the hallway (in some area used as a floor to ceiling feature wall) and stunning large scale sculptures that greet you as soon as you step through the entrance door.
I was overall pleased with my experience and the excellent service I have received.
