Weiss (Prelude, Barton G. The Restaurant) who not only has an affinity for his own name, but also Versace's aesthetic: The property still reflects the designer's original over-the-top décor. Bold colors, rich patterns, curvaceous furniture and intricate tile work make The Villa by Barton G. fit for a royal. You can even stay in Versace's old bedroom. Regular room rates start at $795.
