The Westin Excelsior Rome
Located on the fifth and sixth floors of the hotel, overlooking the Via Veneto, Villa la Cupola is the largest suite in Italy. The central attraction is undoubtedly the domed living room, which features a breath-taking frescoed Cupola inspired by Roma's Palaces and Villas of Renaissance, Baroque and Neo Classical times. The imposing dome, almost 12 meters high, has been entirely hand frescoed. The color scheme of red, gold and pale grey was chosen to give emphasis to the blue sky beyond the round windows at the top of the vaulted ceiling. The study connects with the living room, completely paneled in elegant Italian oak wood and equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology. A private kitchen serves the luxurious dining room which is dominated by a magnificent Murano glass chandelier and an antique dining-table decorated with mosaic marble.
An exclusive selection of vintage wine and champagne await in the private wine cellar. A unique feature of the suite is a private Dolby-Surround cinema and videoconference room equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology ideal for professional multimedia presentations, video conferencing or simply high quality TV/DVD entertainment.
A private elevator and a marble staircase lead to the upper floor of the suite, with its own private fitness room, sauna, steam bath and a magnificent Pompeian style Jacuzzi pool with mosaic floors, vaulted ceiling and frescoes recalling the atmosphere of ancient Roman baths. The design of this room has been accurately studied so that the horizon painted in the scenes of the frescoes on the wall matches perfectly with the real horizon, which can be seen from the windows. Wide private terrace and balconies overlooking the magnificent panorama of the ancient city surround rooms on both floors of the Villa la Cupola.
