Why Stay At Grand Hotel & La Pace
Unpack in this grand Tuscan estate for countryside charms and access to one of the country's most beloved cities (Florence is just 30 minutes away).
A hidden garden escape, the stately Grand Hotel in Montecatini, Tuscany still feels as charming as it did when it opened in 1870. Parquet floors gleam as if they're new, and gold chandeliers cast a romantic glow on crown molding-lined triple-height interiors filled with 19th-century furnishings. All 136 classic rooms are spacious and comfortable, but it's the sprawling property that wows. The estate is set next to a hillside garden park framed by centuries-old trees, and during warm summer days, the swimming pool and patio bar fill with Italian-speaking visitors who lounge on wrought-iron chaise lounges. Sip a Negroni by the water, head indoors to the fresco-clad Michelangelo restaurant, or take a five-minute walk to the Montecatini Centro train station for the 40-minute ride to the artisan workshops and wine bars of Florence.
Don't miss the 8,000-square-foot spa: treatments are included in the room rate, as is access to the Rasul steam baths.
Though it's a traditional hotel, you can still bring your laptop. The hotel has high-speed Internet and a full-service business center.
Arrive at Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport (PSA) which is approximately 39 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 55 minutes of travel time depending on travel time.Viale IV Nobembre 77, Montecatini Terme, Tuscany, Italy
