As you start perusing our Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings in 2011, don't forget about places that have been around awhile but recently come back with a face-lift. Case in point: the Grand Hotel Villa Cora in Florence.

The storybook-like property reopened on December 26, following a three-year restoration and additions that include a new spa, gym, swimming pool and two restaurants.

Rooms at the Grand Hotel Villa Cora are spread across three buildings: the Main Villa, where decor is inspired by famous guests from over the years, including Japanese emperor Hirochito; Villino Eugenia, which has an artistic, traditional feel; and La Follie, a small guesthouse with just two rooms.

As much as we love the sound of the tepidarium (Roman baths) and exclusive MacPharma beauty products in the spa, what we'd really love to see is the Villa's ancient cellars, now the site of one of the restaurants.


The other restaurant's setting ain't so bad, either--wouldn't you agree?

Classic rooms start at 250 euros or $330 USD.
