The 18-storey Four Seasons Hotel Damascus is a prominent feature on the Damascus skyline and a favored retreat for discerning business travelers, diplomats, and those in the know. In the midst of (and in contrast to) the urban sprawl of Damascus, a vibrant, lively city of ancient appeal, this Four Seasons offers extraordinary service in relaxed, cosmopolitan surroundings. Each of the 297 rooms are modern, efficient, and inviting, with expansive views of this ancient Arab cultural center from oversized windows.
The hotel's restaurants, too, are a welcome escape from the city, and as such, are considered hotspots among locals in the know. After a long day of walking, whether it be exploring ancient ruins, strolling through museums, or haggling with vendors at a local shopping bazaar, a first class Italian meal at Il Circo followed by a digestif and cigar at XO make for a perfect end to any day.
