When emailing to book your reservation - please use the email address above and make sure you reference that you are attending the Keystone Symposia conference to receive the discounted rate!

The Student Hotel has found a natural home in Florence, the Cradle of The Renaissance, a place that inspires rebirth and reawakening. Although this European chain of hotels would have been perfectly happy to call any part of the gorgeous city home, they discovered the iconic Dream Palace, a 20,000 square meter historic palazzo located in the heart of the city and they simply couldn’t resist the opportunity to be a part of Italian history. However, don't let the stunning 19th century palazzo facade fool you. Beyond these doors lies a stylish, contemporary urban campus with designer lounges, a game room, state-of-the-art fitness area, a quiet library and an open, inviting courtyard piazza that buzzes with the excited beehive activity of our melting pot community. If you're just looking to relax and unwind, enjoy the stunning city views from their panoramic roof top pool.
