Hotel Eden RomeWe’ve heard whispers that The Dorchester Collection could add a Roman hotel to its portfolio. The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports that the Sultan of Brunei, who owns the prestigious hotel group, is eyeing the Eden Hotel. This would be the second property in Italy for the high-end hotel group, after the Principe di Savoia in Milan.

Currently part of Starwood’s Le Méridien brand, the Eden has a lot going for it: a Michelin-starred restaurant, La Terrazza dell'Eden, with killer views; a great location not far from the Spanish Steps; and a small room count- just 121 rooms and suites- with beautiful views over the city. As HotelChatter points out, “The deal isn’t signed, sealed, delivered quite yet… but given that the company is hoping to have 15 hotels in their portfolio by 2015 (currently they have 9), we’re sure they can work out something on the financial side.”

Dating from 1889, the Hotel Eden is located at Via Ludovisi 49 in Rome. For more information, visit
