"Wonderful Accomodations, great location" Westin Excelsior Rome Tip by jenn5179

Westin Excelsior Rome, Rome: 2,066 reviews and 3 photos

The hotel was immaculate, our room was very large with a great shower.

Also, staff was very friendly, hotel bar was nice with good selection of wines and champagnes by the glass.

Unique Qualities: I really liked the location of this hotel, we were able to walk to many sites, we even walked to the Colliseum and back, stopping at other sites, shops, and a cafe or two on the way back.
In fact, the only time we took a cab was to the Vatican. Everything else we just walked to from the hotel.

We also walked to the restaurant I wrote up on, Santo Padre - which was a wonderful place.

I will say, since it is a Westin, it does not have the small traditional feel, so if you are looking for some "cultural experience" within a hotel, this is probably not it for you.

BUT, if you like a nice clean updated room with a great TV, a shower with fantastic water pressure and want to be able to walk to a few of the sites in town - this is by far a great spot
