1892/94 Giulio Podesti (1857/1909)
Formerly known as HOTEL REGINA CARLTON
Restoration in 2009 with a reduction in the number of rooms
In the lobby "Portrait of Queen Margaret" by Michele Gordigiani
The hotel was chosen by Queen Margherita of Savoy as her home while she awaited the completion of her noble residence, “Villa Margherita”, which presently hosts the American Embassy. The excellent service, hospitality and kindness shown to the Savoy royalty were such that, in 1911, the hotel’s owner was granted permission to give the hotel the name Regina (Queen) and to decorate the emblem with the Royal coat of arms
The poet Gabriele D'Annunzio was a regular customer of the hotel and, in more recent times, Liza Minelli, Dan Brown and the Oasis
