This hotel in a 16th-century former noble palace exudes character. Sensitive renovations have maintained its Renaissance-era grace while creating 33 unique rooms that surround the central courtyard. They all have tub-showers, glass-slab sinks on stained-wood bases, and flat-screen TVs. Headboards are either wrought iron or padded dark brown leather, with soft leather trim on the decorative pillows. On the second floor, both 202 and 204 have small balconies with a view of the plaza out front. Many third-floor rooms have even more character, with exposed pine beams on the slanting ceilings and skylights with remote-controlled shades. One especially popular room is 306, with a large bed and decor in deep aubergine tones. Sizes vary a bit, of course. Whatever room you choose, you will want to spend time in the glassed-over central courtyard with soaring columns and lots of comfortable seating.
