view web site ›'s insider take:

This grand turn-of-the-century hotel, set on the island of Ortygia, is arguably the best in Siracusa. In its heyday, the hotel was a social center for wealthy Italians who gathered for lavish balls, fashion shows, and film screenings. Today, both A-listers and regular folks come for the old-world charm and waterfront setting. The three-story building's impressive common areas are an elaborate mix of marble and hardwood, soaring pillars, and stained-glass domes, furnished with period antiques. The 58 modern rooms and suites seem a bit staid by comparison (although the deluxe suite has its own sea-view balcony and Jacuzzi tub). But there's a dazzling roof-garden restaurant, Terrazza sul Mare, with views overlooking the harbor. Guests have access to a private beach with shuttle service.
