Florence: originally thought Portrait Suites. I know they are part of Lugarno but is the hotel proper a better plan?

Venice: originally wanted to splurge on the Gritti Palace but maybe could save a bit by choosing the Bauer instead?

We are also staying a few nights at Castiglione de Bosco. And I need a recommendation for a hotel in Bologna where we will stay for two nights.

If it matters, this will be my first trip to Italy.
Thanks for any insight/advice
Rome: I love the Majestic, on lower Via Veneto near Piazza Barberini. It is not 5-star luxury but is a "fat" 4 with many charming features. Be sure and get a deluxe double or at least a superior double - not a tiny single room. Costs in the $200's per night.

Florence: the Baglioni. $200's.

Everyone loves Italy. You will too.
