Historical Notes

It was opened in 1925 by Emiliano Lera, who already owned a hotel in Montecatini. Selling off the property in Tuscany, Lera focused his attention and investments on the Piedmont hotel, which took its name from the company’s initials (Società Italiana Terme e Alberghi). The company retained its family nature for over 90 years, with the fourth-generation heirs guaranteeing a continuity that consolidated the hotel’s prestige.

Very often a hotel’s fame, in addition to its exclusive characteristics, is represented and handed down through time by the illustrious guests that have enjoyed the reserved comfort of its rooms.

Despite its relatively short history, the Grand Hotel Sitea has always attracted outstanding personalities, including the great “Satchmo”, Louis Armstrong, as well as illustrious names from the worlds of finance, politics and show business.

The diligent upkeep of its rooms, its great attention to detail and its historicalness have enabled the Grand Hotel Sitea to gain a place among the Locali Storici d’Italia.
