At The Salvatore Ferragamo Hotel in Florence You'll Find (What Else?) Salvatore Ferragamo Toiletries

Where: Florence, Italy
October 7, 2013 at 4:48 PM | by | ()

Oscar de la Renta is not the only fashion designer with his own bath toiletries in hotels. Long before Oscar unveiled his new line for Peninsula Hotels, fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo had put their Tuscan Soul toiletries in the Lugarno Collection, their small portfolio of Italian hotels. And thanks to HotelChatter Flickr Member, Uggboy, we've got a close-up of what the amenity line looks like.

This photo was snapped at the Gallery Hotel in Florence near the Ponte Vecchio which houses its own Salvatore Ferragamo museum downstairs. But you won't leave the hotel with just Ferragamo toiletries.

As part of the Salvatore Ferragamo Experience, guests get a tour of the museum as well as a private shopping excursion to the SF store upstairs. Guests of the Gallery Hotel's suites also get a private visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Creations Santa Trinita Boutique, where historical Ferragamo shoe collections, accessories and a 10% discount await. Rooms start at 225 Euros.

Want to nab some Ferragamo toiletries closer to home? They can also be found at several Waldorf Astoria hotels.

  Site Where: Firenze, Italy

Word to lovers of fashion hotels (and Facebook founders): the Ferragamo family is expanding its hotel empire by opening Portrait Firenze next year, sister hotel to Portrait Suites in Rome – where Zuckerberg honeymooned – and part of its Lungarno Collection.

Right on the river Arno, you will be in the heart of Firenze, and if you’re lucky enough you’ll be able to see the Ponte Vecchio from your balcony. There will be only 36 rooms and suites, ranging from a 430 square foot Studio to the 1,400 sq ft Signature Suite with view of the river. First images of the rooms certainly look lovely, with dark hardwood floors, off-white/light grey walls and modern furniture. Bathrooms are slathered in Carrara marble, with – of course – Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries. Each room comes with its own complimentary iPad.

With the launch this week of Dan Brown’s next magnum opus, Inferno, the Ferragamo (as in Salvatore) family-owned Lungarno Collection of hotels has come up with an Inferno Package that lets you follow in the footsteps of our intrepid hero, Robert Langdon, as he searches the hidden passageways of Florence to learn the hidden secrets to Dante’s Divine Comedy.

The Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio and the house of Dante are just three of the places on this three-hour special access tour you'll go to before the film crews arrive and take them over to shoot the next Robert Langdon AKA Tom Hanks movie.

But that ain’t all, folks. You’ll also get:

What’s Out, What’s In: Hotel Restaurants Get In the Game

April 25, 2013 at 2:32 PM | by | ()

Now that's what we call a hearty piece of meat!

We've started a series of what’s trending in hotels these days: What’s Out, What’s In. Do we like what we see? Think it's a dud? You be the judge!

What's Out: Grass-fed beef and local poultry

What's In: Local wild game dishes

With the meteoric rise of culinary tourism and the fact that pretty much everyone wants a good meal, hotel restaurants have had to increase their game (we’re so funny...) and look for new ways to impress you gourmands out there.

Sorrel River Ranch near Moab, UT, is wedged between Arches and Canyonlands National Parks on the banks of the Colorado River. The ranch has a – get this -- Garden Manager who tends to two acres of organic produce (fantastic!) which finds its way into the hands of the chef, along with local wild game. The chef’s newest creation? Rabbit and Rattlesnake Sausage with Utah Peach Preserves and Baby Greens.

For more gamey goodness, read on!

There are many places we dream of going if we had unlimited funds and Italy is definitely at the top of the list. So when we heard that billionaire Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his new bride, Priscilla Chan, were honeymooning in Rome, we had to find out where they were staying.

Fortunately, it wasn't too hard to determine where. The Daily Mail reports the newlyweds shacked up at Portraits Suites, a hotel that we recommended back in September for a Twitter follower.
