Celebrity guests

The Hotel Cipriani protects its famous guests from paparazzi and autograph-seekers, but it isn't above a bit of namedropping--unless, of course, a guest wishes to remain incognito after his, her, or a companion's departure.

Even a short list of the Cipriani's celebrity guests reads like a Who's Who of entertainment, fashion, literature, politics, and the nobility. But don't be intimidated if you lack a household name; your fellow guests are more likely to be orthodontists, cardiologists, lawyers, and business executives than movie stars or heads of state.

(Interested in census trivia? About 35% of the Cipriani's guests come from the United Kingdom, another 35% are from the U.S., and many of the remaining 30% are from France, Germany, or Switzerland.)
