The former Villa Speyer, an exemplary model of Neoclassical architecture, is now the Villa Kennedy, completely restored, redesigned, and expanded, and yet still showing traces of yesteryear. The ancient statues in the courtyard garden, for example, offer a romantic and peaceful haven.
Past and present, charm and modernity all blend flawlessly in the hotel's light and airy spaces. The 163 rooms (of which 36 are suites) are split between the villa and the modern wing. All are classically decorated in shades of beige and taupe, with superb sofas covered in natural fabrics. The innate elegance extends into the bathrooms, where the walls are covered with mosaics. The luxurious open garden spa is a Zen oasis, very popular with Frankfurters, with pool, fitness centre, eight massage rooms, and more than 120 treatments offered.
The JFK Bar attracts a lively and glamorous clientele, as does Gusto, the hotel's excellent Italian restaurant.
