I had just gotten off the train after a quick pit stop in Pisa, walked around 10 minutes over to Piazza Ognissanti, checked into the St. Regis Hotel here in Florence, and as soon as I stepped foot into this suite, my jaw dropped.
This might just be the most beautiful suite I've ever laid my eyes on.
This might also just be the most beautiful bed I've ever laid my bum on.
This is definitely the most beautiful view of the Fiume Arno river at sunset, right from this window.
But I wouldn't expect anything less from the hotel ranked #2 in all of Florence.
Everyone who stays here has their own personal butler. She was pretty awesome - she gave us recommendations on places to eat, visit, play and dance while we relaxed in the living area in the afternoon.
The Italian cappuccinos and cookies were a perfect pick-me-up.
And it's only fair that if the bed is this beautiful... the bathroom should be just as magnificent for your bum.
Magnificent is right. The products are the most amazing, the tub has jets perfect for a big night in, and no entertainment needed because there's a TV screen built into the mirror right above the sink.
So you've got one life to live and yes, a limited budget, but this place is definitely one that's worth the splurge.
This is one of the most luxurious hotels in Italy, and if you've been thinking of doing something special for your mom, wife, and/or hubby (you go, you sugar mama, you), I would most definitely recommend bringing them here to treat them for a night of two.
