Historic hotel with modern finishes
Modern furnishings and décor enhance the beautiful architecture of the Risorgimento Resort. The hotel has a grand hallway with beautiful white arches and cutouts displaying papier-mâché statues. The lobby has an expansive skylight, bringing light into this sleek space where the front desk, white couches, red tables, and an indoor terrarium are located. The overall vibe is relaxed and refined, from the beautiful rooftop terrace to the restaurant with its gorgeous stone walls and funky, modern furniture.
