As background, have been (formerly) a Hilton Diamond member back when I traveled more, so I've been to many Hiltons worldwide.
Wifi seems to be $30 Euro per day. For the short duration we were there, we just used cell service. Common areas have free wifi according to hotel, and Gold/Diamond Members get it for free. Not being part of that clique now, we just used our cell phones. I would think that paying $600 euro a night should qualify for free wifi, but we didn't need, use, or check on that. Some former posters discussed the nickel and dime approach, and it looks like you can run into small charges here and there for some things. We were fine with the services we used, no complaints.
This hotel was the best by far in terms of luxury, location, and rooms.
We rented a suite, so we had access to their 7th floor club that serves snacks and food throughout the day.
We were there for 2 days, really, so we were out and about visiting Rome for the first time, using an outside private car service. The hotel does offer free shuttle to/from the city center throughout the day, so that would be an option too, but less nice than being picked up and shuttled all around.
We did not have time to partake in the pool(s), or the spa other than popping in and looking at them. Very lovely areas.
View from the 7th floor lounge, you can just see part of the Vatican City through the trees. Heard church bells throughout the day, not sure whether that was from St. Peters/Vatican or not. Very nice though.
The room was the most comfortable we have stayed in. The Mattress pad was soft and extremely comfortable, the room temperature easily changed, pillows customizable and soft. Frankly the best we have had anywhere.
Room service prompt and excellent - we did a night dinner/snack, the rest of the time we did the Club for small portions.
No complaints or suggestions for improvements, we would have loved to stay longer, and indeed would stay here again when next in Rome. Probably 5-10 minutes to Rome Center from here in August, when traffic is light.
Rome was exceptionally NOT crowded in August, likely to it being vacation month. The weather was a bit warm and humid, so walking around was not as pleasant as it would be in September, or June, which we were told was prime touring months.
