Having been a long time Marriott Gold member, I had the opportunity to stay at the Grand Hotel Flora in Rome recently through usage of points. The Hotel staff treated me outstandingly and took extra effort to insure that as a new visitor to Rome that they helped me with my "tourist" activities as well as insuring my room, breakfast, and late night excursions to the lobby to WIFI SKYPE went well.
I heartily encourage this hotel to anyone visiting Rome and really appreciate the benefits afforded me through my membership as reflected in my visit with this hotel and their staff.
Thank you for the insight on this hotel. We are staying there in August after our cruise. I kept trying to get into this hotel because of the location using points. Originally I booked the Rome Marriott Park Hotel. Looking forward to our first short stay in Rome. Any recommendations?
