I will be visiting Rome for the first time in October, arriving at noon on October 15th and taking a flight out on October 19th at 8 am. I plan to take a day trip on a fast train to Venice on 17th. I would like to take in as much as I can on this short trip.
I am looking for a nice hotel/accommodation with decent size room, attached bath, internet, and breakfast with easy access to Airport(FCO), Termini Station(for Venice trip) and local transit in Rome. My budget is about USD 100 a day for the accommodation. I'm travelling alone.
Any suggestions are welcome. Also, should I wait till later to book the hotel or is it a good idea to book it now. I am a Platinum Elite member of IHG (Holiday Inn) rewards but I find that either their prices are high or their location does not seem to be convenient.
