Turin now offers increasingly varied and content-rich opportunities for companies and organisations that want to stage events, conventions, meetings and celebrations of a business or private nature. On such occasions the 4-star Grand Hotel Sitea is one of the city’s beacons, for its high-profile hospitality, its experience and its well-appointed facilities: four luxury and charming rooms able to hold anywhere from 25 to 100 people. The very quiet Sala Re Umberto looks onto the hotel’s interior garden but is also brightly lit and lends itself to various types of set-up. The Sala Principe Amedeo is similar in size but located on the first floor, a soberly elegant room that can hold a maximum of 60 people. Compact, decorated in rich red tones and elegant classic furnishings, the Sala Vittorio Emanuele is a setting of great charm. The warmth of the fireplace creates the right atmosphere both for a dinner with friends and to celebrate an event to remember.
Whatever the nature of your stay, the city can reveal unexpected depths. Because the capital of tradition, oligarchic dynasties, understatement and little gestures repeated down through the centuries is also the “laboratory city” that is capable of inventing and doing with surprising concreteness and ingenuity. In this post-industrial city in full transition, the Winter Olympics were made possible only by a combination of Turin’s visionary spirit and its organisational talent. These same qualities have enabled its status as a centre of avant-garde boat building despite being landlocked, its burgeoning hydrogen industry in response to the new energy challenges, Italy’s most advanced system for furthering contemporary art, an extraordinary creative effervescence in the musical arena, and an audiovisual and film production centre capable of competing with the traditional international studios. Modern-day Turin is a centre of development of the culture economy, the service economy, the hospitality economy. A process in which the Olympics, with the urbanistic and structural changes that it required, represent only a stage, the one that is easiest to see. And if today Turin can position itself as a “city of work” where a multiplicity of fields of expertise converge, at the same time it remains a city of taste and good taste, a “theatre city” with its refined baroque aesthetic, its convivial pleasures wrapped in an elegant sobriety, sparkling with the myriad shards of light from its precious crystals, mirrors, velvets, frescoes, the internal and natural scenery that embellish the whole.
All 120 rooms are elegantly decorated in a classic, sober style that recalls the mood of the period in which the hotel was built, in the early 20th century.

From October through April, an appointment you won’t want to miss is the tea-time, featuring a refined selection of Oriental blends accompanied by dainty titbits and haute pâtisserie, a tradition for which Turin enjoys worldwide fame. The bar is open year round from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 a.m. The two rooms of the Carignano restaurant, internal to the hotel, designed for a total of 115 guests, are especially well suited for holding cocktail parties and wedding banquets, both for the quality of the cuisine and for its friendly staff, always able to provide a harmonious welcome on festive occasions. The view of the little internal courtyard adds another charming touch to the ambience.
