The Empire Palace Hotel enjoys a privileged place in Rome: within a easy stroll you could be in the Borghese Gardens, sipping a drink while people watching on the Via Veneto, browsing the antiques of Via Margutta or enjoying the spectacle of the Spanish Steps. It opened as a 113 room hotel in 1999 having been a grand house once owned by a noble Venetian Family. Built around a courtyard, where light meals and drinks are served, with stables at the rear, the conversion is a stylish, not to say an opulent, contrast of classic and contemporary. The design works around three themes: Venice, modern art and the stars of the night. ,The American Bar in the converted stables has the cutting edge of Space Age design while the guestrooms mellow in the lustrous patina of cherrywood and hues of gold. The restaurant, Aureliano, named after the Roman Emperor, serves gourmet seasonal Mediterranean cuisine and fine wines in an aura of classic elegance.
