It was open on January 10, 1894 with a great celebration of this event. The Grand Hotel was built by Giulio Podesti for an important International hotel corporation, owner of Savoy Hotel in London and of Hotel Ritz in Paris. Cesar Ritz himself and a famous chief-cook A.Escoffier personally collaborated on organization and beginning of work of the new hotel. For its construction were destroyed Palazzo di Termini. The hotel is especially famous for a big number of its celebrated guests: Russian princes, English lords, famous writers like L.N.Tolstoj and E.Zola, noble Italian families like Mazarini, Florio, Rospigliosi, and etc.

Le Grand Hotel, today’s St. Regis grand hotel, Rome
Marquis di Rudini convinced César Ritz to travel to Rome to study the opportunities. Ritz arrived - and built this hotel, Le Grand Hotel, today’s St. Regis.This opulent 19th-century landmark palace opened by César Ritz and designed by architect Giulio Podesti, a 10-minute walk from the Via Veneto, made the most of its $35 million restoration in 2007. It had frescoes by the famous painter, Mario Spinetti. There was a small vineyard in an interior courtyard known as the Adornetto. The work of original architect Giulio Podesti resulted in the hotel looking like a private estate; that made for an interesting combination of a grand and cozy ambiance. The renovation made visible intricate marble mosaic, newly cleaned precious candelabra and Murano chandeliers in the five story building. The renovation was conducted by, among others, architects Intertechno from Rome and Milan; Hirsch Bedner and Associates from Atlanta did the interior design and Pha from Atlanta did the light designs. There were antique chandeliers in the lobby and other common areas. We liked the regal style of the hotel and felt relaxed in the common areas, which remained uncluttered even when the hotel was full. More details about HISTORY OF ST. REGIS - GRAND HOTEL ROME
