PALAZZO DAMA is a storied destination hotel that redefines luxury in the Eternal City. Located near the banks of the Tiber River and just steps from the Piazza del Popolo, Palazzo Dama was built in the eighteenth century by the Malaspina family, whose social events became the toast of Rome. Its name pays homage to the elegant women who once graced its halls, in particular Anna Maria Malaspina, a marquise and poet admired for her cultural savvy, sparkling wit, and gracious hospitality. The property retains its spirit of refinement and warmth, melding a sophisticated contemporary design aesthetic with vintage objets d’art from around the world. The rooms and suits are accented in rich, dark blues and marine-inspired greens that echo the principle tones used throughout the common areas of the hotel. Whether you are a night owl who wants to see and be seen, or someone who would rather bask quietly in the light of day, you’ll find something to match your temperament.
During the day, the secluded garden is a respite from Rome’s frenetic energy, with its fragrant olive and lemon trees, sparkling pool, and readily available refreshments. At night, the private club Raspoutine, located in the basement, beckons visitors who want to let loose on the dance floor in an atmosphere of velvet-accented luxury. If you overindulge, skilled therapists and beauty technicians are available to provide a host of treatments in the comfort of your room. When you are ready to see the sights, the concierge can help you craft a custom itinerary, whether you want to shop, visit world class museums, tour the city’s cultural highlights, or find the best gelato in the neighborhood. Cap your day’s adventures with dinner at the on-site Pacifico restaurant, pioneered by Chef Jaime Pesquae, who chose the hotel specifically to embark on his latest project highlighting the Asian influences on traditional Peruvian cuisine. This is the restaurant’s second opening, after its great success in Milan, and already diners are abuzz over dishes like tiradito and Wagyu carpaccio.
