While the hotel's new (as of the start of 2013) Tuscan-style lobby is certainly well conceived and has an abundance of materials, textures and concepts, it might take a while for it to really earn that true rustic quality that the Italian region is so famous for. Before entering the hotel proper, guests pass through a porch whose walls are covered with stones placed there by hand while overhead is a beautifully delicate handmade lamp whose ?branches' form a sphere. In the lobby, the marble-topped, angular front desk makes a change from the more formal, rigid receptions one is used to while behind it is a hand-beaded leather wall with a motif that seems more Oriental than Tuscan. Opposite the desk is the hotel's breakfast room (see 'Food and Drink') while down the short marble staircase are two seating areas each featuring wingback chairs, sofas and coffee tables with plants and magazines. Two of the space's best features are the handmade branches on the short rails that go travel around the different parts of the lobby and the mobile-style lamps that hang from the ceiling and adorn the walls. The light coloured wooden and marble flooring go a long way to achieving the feel of an Italian property.
The hotel's fitness room boasts a collection of top-of-the-range machines as well as a punching bag. During our visit we were told that there were plans for a personal trainer to be hired and that there would soon be a pantry with snacks for post-work-out sustenance. While there are no wellness facilities at The Tuscany, there is a beauty parlour open to guests of the hotel at the sister property, The Court, right around the corner. Other amenities include a smart, full service business centre where there were plans to install flatscreen televisions. There is a cost, however, for the use of the facility.
The hotel as a whole is in great condition and looks to be well maintained and clean and tidy. The corridors, with their custom carpet, are wide and light and easily negotiable and good indications means finding your room is no hassle.
