The mile-long Via del Corso was, and remains, among Rome’s most prestigious addresses. The modern street follows an ancient triumphal route and is trimmed by palaces built by popes and noble families. The San Carlo Suite, named for a nearby church, consists exclusively of suites, most set on the third floor of one such palace.
The suites and common areas are meant to feel intimate and homey, although the rooms that feature a tub beside the bed may be taking it a step too far—or not far enough, depending on your preferences. Rooms are decorated in earth tones with splashes of color, and the furnishings embrace clean lines and minimalist design.
Although the San Carlo Suite has on-site staff, the reception and concierge areas are in a sister property, Giglio d’Oro Suite, near Piazza Navona. Guests at the San Carlo Suite can contact a virtual concierge via Skype.
