It took some time and planning (since Feb 08) but I was able to book 4 nights using standard hotel rewards. We just returned from our trip to Rome. It was fabulous. We were treated like kings, upgraded to a junior suite which was great, lovely breakfast and view from the roof. Very nice corner suite on the top floor, very nice. For those of you trying to use reward points here, be persistant and maybe lucky and it will be worth the effort.
