I was hesitant at first to reserve two nights at Park Hotel Argento because of the cost per night in mid September. But after exploring the cost of other lodgings in the area, I am thankful we did. Could we have found something less expensive --- probably yes. But would it have matched what we received --- perhaps not. It began with complimentary pick up and drop off service starting at the railroad station and included the same in the community of Levanto. Although certainly walkable, as we did, after a wonderful meal in Levanto, it was wonderful to have the service without having to call a taxi. And after the hustle and bustle of Florence, Rome, Milan and Venice, it was a treat to sit down in comfort in a large, clean room with a terrace view over Levanto and a peek at the coast. What cannot predict the weather and of course we had a cool rain that prohibited our hiking and exploration of the Cinque Terre which begins minutes away by train. Thankfully we were able to use the steam room and sauna at the hotel (free!) in lieu of getting into the area more deeply. Our two nights ended quickly, but our good memories linger of a quality vacation in a resort like setting.
