IL Tornabuoni Hotel joins the Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Florence, Italy
The 62-room historic urban gem marks the first Hyatt hotel in the city of Florence.
Hyatt Hotels Corporation have announced the opening of IL Tornabuoni Hotel in Florence. The luxurious 62-bedroom Renaissance-inspired former palace signifies the debut of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in Italy, known for its independent, one-of-a-kind hotels that offer bespoke experiences that inspire guests.
Whether it is a captivating past, an exclusive location, famous architecture and design or an award-wining dining experience, each property within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand maintains a distinct character and the freedom to be unique, while still providing guests with the World of Hyatt loyalty program and a trusted brand name and reputation.
This historical property – formerly the Palazzo Minerbetti – has undergone significant restoration since its early days as an urban palace hosting well known figures like the Grand Duke of Tuscany, better known as Cosimo de Medici lll. His patronage of science, architecture, literature and arts contributed to the cultural heritage of Florence and is reflected throughout the hotel via updates to guest rooms and suites, public spaces, the terrace and more.
Carefully curated in colours of red, blue and gold, each of the 62 guestrooms reflect the Renaissance era that Florence is known for, epitomising the rich history and artistic magnificence of the period and allowing guests to create story-worthy experiences during their stay.
Located along Via de Tornabuoni, one of the most prestigious streets in Florence, guests can explore this cultural heritage, taking a short stroll to admire Palazzo Strozzi, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore or the Uffizi Gallery. Guests can also step back in time with a climb up Giotto’s Campanile, a marbled Gothic tower that delivers spectacular views across the city, or find the historic Ponte Vecchio, the famous Medieval bridge hosting authentic Italian jewellery shops, right at their doorstep.
“We are excited to welcome guests to this extraordinary palace and iconic symbol of Florence,” says Andrea Girolami President and CEO at AG Group for IL Tornabuoni Hotel. “IL Tornabuoni Hotel is truly a breathtaking property, and we are looking forward to providing independent-minded guests with a sophisticated yet unscripted experience. Florence understands how to treasure and maintain the spirit of its artistic and cultural wealth. Travellers to this exceptional city will find an abundance of opportunities to learn, grow, and expand by experiencing the monumental historic past of Florence.”
Each of the 62 guestrooms reflects the history and beauty of the Renaissance era that Florence is known for thanks to their stylish design and historic names. Complete with bold gem-tone colours and luxurious furnishings, each room epitomizes the rich history and artistic magnificence of the period, allowing guests to enjoy story-worthy experiences during their visit.
The opening of IL Tornabuoni Hotel represents a significant milestone for Hyatt as The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand debuts in Italy and marks the first Hyatt hotel in Tuscany. IL Tornabuoni Hotel proudly joins a stunning portfolio of Hyatt branded hotels in Italy which includes Park Hyatt Milan, Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale, Hyatt Centric Murano Venice, and most recently The Tribune Hotel.
IL Tornabuoni Hotel will be managed by the AG Group, which is proud to work with Hyatt and to leverage Hyatt’s global distribution network as well as the award-winning World of Hyatt loyalty program while maintaining IL Tornabuoni’s unique individuality and independence.
