ROME CAVALIERI, A WALDORF ASTORIA HOTEL
History & Story
Inaugurated in 1963 by Conrad N.Hilton himself, the opening of the Rome Cavalieri coincided with a period of unprecedented economic development and the heyday of the so-called “Dolce Vita”.
At that time Rome was also the setting for “Hollywood on the Tiber” due to its allure for American film studios and movie stars from across the world. In such a dynamic atmosphere of optimism and growth, the « Cavalieri Hilton », as the hotel was then known, was a key element of the Eternal City’s attention towards all modern things. The Rome Cavalieri is an oasis in the heart of the city; the building is an admirable example of modular architecture, resulting in a style that is both clean-lined and functional. Ever since its opening, the hotel paid close attention to providing the highest level of comfort to its guests, and it is for this reason that it soon became the number one choice of movie stars, businessmen and international visitors alike, all demanding the highest standards of luxury.
