Great hotel, but lately it is becoming impossible to understand how it works: the taxi had to leave me in the middle of the crowded road as the entrance was packed with limo, security, police and god knows what else. Many vip's use this hotel , especially Italian "politicians" and their entourage stands outside the hotel, right in the entrance... More

Cozy Westin near the US embassy and 10 minutes from the metro stop. Rooms were quite big but furniture sparse. Free coffee in the lobby but strangely on first and third day they served instant coffee while second day they served brewed coffee. They also only gave us free complimentary water on one day out of three.

Our room in the hotel was nicely appointed, felt more "old world" than typical top of the line American hotel room in its decor. Staff was helpful, though a bit nonchalant when my daughter and husband had an issue with their room key. Interesting to be in the hotel the day of the election--watching them set up for a by-invitation... More

Didn't had a change to experience fully, but I would like to share my opinion that this is great hotel, in the heart of Rome. You feel like you are not in the hotel but like in museum of art.

I've stayed at a number of Starwood Hotels around the world and have generally enjoyed them. I didn't enjoy the Rome Excelsior at all. The only good thing I can say about it is that the building is quite pretty, the rooms are reasonably large (certainly larger than its sister hotel, the St Regis) and it is quite close to... More

Great hotel in a great location in Rome. It is a beautiful old building with updated and spacious rooms Beds are very comfortable. Walking distance or a short taxi ride to the train station.

A nice historic hotel with an amazing past, but I was not really convinced. The rooms are a bit aged. The bar closes at 1pm and is not very excited. The quality in the restaurant is ok but not amazing. Service is fairly slow. Overall there is more exciting places in Rome

The room is surprisingly large for hotels in European cities. The ground floor is grand. The hotel is in the historical district of Rome. It's a nice hotel. The Internet is pretty fast. It is worth a visit when in Rome.

Stayed as a part of the Nisa Conference, I would highly recommend the Westin Excelsior to anyone visiting Rome, centrally located in Rome. At this hotel you are within walking distance of the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and numerous shops and cafes along the main road. The Metro station is a 5 minute walk away. Easy subway ride to... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 20:00.
