In the Eternal City, nothing is ever really over. Naturally, then, Rome’s dormant Hotel Majestic is to be resurrected under the French luxury house Baccarat, in partnership with SH Hotels & Resorts and Boscalt Hospitality. At this upcoming property, fabulous lives on in a city that refuses to accept any so-called endings.

Baccarat Updates Classic Charm with Modern Touches

Baccarat Hotel Rome’s debut is scheduled for late 2025, following a complete restoration that will crystallize the landmark property’s classic glamour, while giving it a crisp, contemporary edge. Baccarat knows that location is a two-way street; a hotel should enhance and reflect the beauty of its surroundings. The new property will have detailed finishes and flourishes, enveloped in a gleam that revels in the space’s former beauty while declaring its own. Liza Masias, Boscalt Hospitality co-founder, made clear the pure intentions behind Hotel Majestic’s reincarnation, highlighting the efforts of Baccarat’s design team to “…redefine and reposition the historic property with a contemporary flair that pays respectful tribute to the cultural and artistic heritage of an ancient, yet modern, imperial city.”

On the ground, guests will be able to take in the buzz of Piazza Barberini, which the hotel overlooks, at the main restaurant’s broad terrace. Those looking for a bird’s-eye view can catch one at the rooftop bar. Other amenities include a full-service spa, a fitness facility, and decked-out meeting and conference spaces. Off the property grounds, the iconic Spanish Steps unfurl themselves, only a 10-minute walk away. 

Via Veneto, the famous street on which the upcoming hotel was originally established, often bustled with the likes of Sofia Loren and Cary Grant, Coco Chanel and Tennessee Williams. In fact, Hotel Majestic itself was something of a star, with its Bar Ninfa playing a role in Federico Fellini’s classic “La Dolce Vita.” For those clients who slip into bejeweled luxury with ease, the sweet life awaits at Baccarat Hotel Rome.
