The Westin Excelsior, Rome

The Westin Excelsior, Rome — a longtime favorite of celebrities, heads of state and artists — is truly a legend in a city of legends.

Great location

By: Vandy 43

Location is one of the best in Rome, near the US Embassy. Breakfast is fine. Staff ok. Hotel needs to be spiffed up and remodeled, painted. It is a little tired.

This is a great hotel located in the heart of Rome. The rooms were large and clean. The concierge did a great job finding us local restaurants that were close by. Definitely worth staying here.

Loved the location!

By: Beth

We loved the location. It was in a quiet neighborhood. Rooms were lovely, space was large, and staff very friendly. We had travelers of varying ages, it was lovely to come home to quiet, well-attended accommodations at the end of every day. The tours we planned in Rome were easier in and out from the hotel because it was slightly removed from the chaos of Rome center. We would definitely repeat this hotel!

Overall experience was good. The concierge and restaurant staff were very good. The front desk was not as helpful as we hoped. The location is the selling point for this hotel.

Westin Excelsior Review

By: Peggy

Reviewed on: 07 Nov 2017

This was a nice hotel but once we got off the elevator it took FOREVER to get to our room. It was a confusing maze with marginally helpful signage. Room looked out to an interior, unattractive courtyard. Breakfast was good but not great. Nice bar in the hotel where we enjoyed a drink on the last night. Wouldn't ever go back to this one. Sure there are other options that would be better.

beautiful and excellent service

This is a place to stay. It is beautiful and the service is beyond excellent. We even had an unusual request of the concierge to ship some things back to the U.S. They were packaged and arrived here before we got home. My only complaint was that I felt the food in the bar was over-priced. We also had dinner there and that was somewhat more reasonably priced for what you got. The breakfast buffet has everything you could want and is excellent.

We loved this property. You are in the center but enough removed on this tree lined street that you don't have constant horn honking etc. The whole staff at the hotel was accommodating and polite. The bar and the food was wonderful

A great location for Rome adventures, staff was very nice and extremely helpful. We would certainly stay here again. They did need a little updating/refreshing. Our carpet could have been updated, was a little worn, but overall, very nice.
