One hundred twenty-five years after opening its doors, Hotel Eden in Rome is reinventing itself. The Dorchester Collection hotel reopens April 1 with a full renovation, which includes 98 guestrooms and suites, the lobby, a new spa, and an updated dining space and F&B program. Luca Virgilio is the general manager.
Architect and designer Bruno Moinard of 4BI & Associates led the restoration, redesigning the lobby and rooms, Sanjit Manku of Jouin Manku spearheaded the spa and dining outlets, and the F&B program was revamped by Michelin-starred Chef Fabio Ciervo.
On the surface, the guestrooms now blend contemporary conveniences with authentic Roman style. The guestrooms have high ceilings and tall windows framing Rome’s picturesque skyline. Modern luxuries include master-controlled lighting and climate control, Wi-Fi, Bang & Olufson televisions and Bluetooth-enabled sound systems. Bathrooms are decorated in white and gold with marble vanities, walk-in rain showers, separate bath and Italian Bottega Veneta toiletries; on the walls are mosaics.
For VIPs who wish to spend their stay in the top accommodation, the Bellavista Penthouse Suite takes the cake. The 2,174-square-foot rooftop location has hardwood floors, fully opening floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of Rome, and a private elevator. It includes a bedroom, living room with dining and study area, and a spacious marble bathroom.
Advisors should contact Laura Fiore ([email protected]), director of sales and marketing, if they have any questions regarding accommodations. Families should book one of the 23 connecting rooms available.
Dining Tips: La Terrazza will serve Mediterranean cuisine from the top floor, Il Giardino Ristorante & Bar will have a menu of Italian classics with a modern twist and La Libreria will offer light snacks, salads and afternoon tea. Tip: In the evenings, La Libreria is a good place to grab a post-dinner drink and listen to live piano music.
The new “urban spa” will have four suites with signature treatments by Sonya Dakar and Officina Profumo — Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, which was established in 1612. Vaunted ceilings will be present, as a nod to Roman architecture.
