This Historic Hotel in Rome Just Got a Modern Italian Makeover

The grand InterContinental Rome Ambasciatori Palace, which opened May 1, is housed in a building on Via Veneto originally built in 1905 to host diplomats visiting the nearby American embassy. Designed in the style of a neo-Renaissance palace by celebrated architect Carlo Busiri Vici, IHG Hotels & Resorts had their work cut out for them in terms of preservation.
