From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
In a town laden with fading grande dame properties, this stylish restoration of a landmark hotel that dates back to the eighteenth century is a special achievement. Contemporary touches meld with the original architectural details of the lava-red palazzo to create 23 ultramodern guest rooms with white leather sofas and headboards, marble floors, massive spiraling crystal chandeliers, and TVs mounted into custom-designed nooks. Bathrooms feel like mini spas, with huge showers. In the public areas, arching stone tunnels from the fifteenth century lead to a cliffside pool that awes even on this hillside famed for its panoramas, and the hotel's entrance sits on the main thoroughfare of Corso Umberto I but feels away from the fray. Perhaps the best part of The Metropole is the warm, hardworking staff, who show no sign of the service fatigue too often encountered elsewhere in town. They go beyond the call of duty, sending a receptionist to guide lost drivers to the garage, offering upgrades and late checkouts whenever possible, and ensuring that rooms are set up the way one wants.—2011 Hot List

Which room to book: No. 12 has a terrace overlooking the Med.
