As we made our way to the hotel by car, I was concerned about traffic. What a wonderful hotel with good parking. We were concerned about the drive into town, but it was not a problem, particularly with the shuttle and the helpfulness of the staff. The hotel was beautiful and we enjoyed the views of downtown Florence. The only two concerns - it was a little difficult to get wi-fi connection and the food seemed to be a bit pricey (although we did not eat here). Everything else was great and I would recommend it highly.
