    Grand Hotel Tremezzo
    Tremezzina
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1303 reviewsTripAdvisor (1303)
    Free WiFi

    Located along Lake Como's western shore, this Preferred Legend outpost sits near Lake Como's upscale villas – some of which are owned by celebrities like Madonna and George Clooney – and offers guests prime access to shops, restaurants and the Villa Carlotta art museum. Grand Hotel Tremezzo started welcoming guests in the early 1900s and features period details like a 19th-century billiards table and silk window coverings. Old-world touches, including bow windows, marble bathrooms and antique furnishings, are also available in the hotel's 92 guest rooms and suites. Standard accommodations have park vistas, while upgraded rooms and most suites offer views of Lake Como. Though some former travelers bemoaned their accommodations' lack of space and high rates, many appreciated the views. Past visitors were also impressed with the hotel's friendly staff and ESPA-affiliated spa. For more picturesque panoramas, guests can lounge on the property's private beach or take a dip in the floating pool set within Lake Como. When you've worked up an appetite, enjoy casual bites by the beach or the Flowers Pool (a quiet pool situated in the property's park), wine and grilled dishes in L'Escale Trattoria & Wine Bar or a gourmet Italian-inspired meal at La Terrazza Restaurant.

    Il Salviatino
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 828 reviewsTripAdvisor (828)

    Located about 5 miles northeast of Florence in the town of Fiesole, this restored 15th-century villa attracts guests with its picturesque views and gardens. Visitors are equally impressed by this Preferred Hotels & Resorts outpost's guest rooms and suites, which feature traditional Tuscan details like locally made linens and high ceilings. Though some past travelers noted a few maintenance issues in their accommodations, most appreciated the rooms' comfortable beds and modern conveniences like mirrors with built-in TVs and free Wi-Fi. After settling into your digs, venture outside to the hotel's gardens, where you'll find a two-tier infinity-edge pool, which is open seasonally between April and October, and some of the property's best vistas. For those in need of respite from the sun, head inside for a massage at the spa or an Italian-inspired meal at La Cucina. Or, if you'd rather dine in Florence, take advantage of the hotel's complimentary shuttle service to and from downtown.
