Renovated Rocco Forte Hotel Savoy (Florence, Italy)

Any views regarding the Rocco Forte Hotel Savoy in Florence since it was renovated about a year ago? The location looks ideal. Quiet and hard product are particularly important.

I had a very nice stay there a few months ago. I booked an Executive Suite and was allocated a triple upgrade to the Grand View Suite. The Suite felt brand new and was well insulated from street noise. Service was warm and gracious. The location is as central as it gets. I would be happy to return.

Do you know why you were upgraded? Book direct and hotel not crowded, travel agent, FHR, other?

I booked directly with the hotel. I was there during a relatively busy time of the year, so I suppose the upgrade was due to the hotel being full and not the opposite.

FWIW, when you wrote "I had a very nice stay there a few months ago" I thought you were there in February, when Florence is usually not crowded.

The executive suite would be my first choice too.

The Rocco Forte group recently enhanced their own program called Knights to offer 170EUR credit vs the normal 85EUR with Virtuoso and FHR on *suites*. Min stay of 2 nights.

Does Knights require a travel agent belonging to the program?

The dates I was looking at, booking direct offered about a 20% discount compared to Virtuoso pricing (and included free breakfast).

Yes.... Virtuoso & Knights are applicable on all Rocco Forte offers except the prepaid non-refundable type rates. At least that is my experience with all their promotions.

FWIW, an executive suite was 920E direct and $1,283 Virtuoso for mid-November, both refundable until two days prior and both including breakfast.

Then I suggest you follow-up with whomever offered you that rate quote as it would be wrong in my opinion.
