Rome Marriott Grand Hotel Flora

Reviewed 18 November 2008

My husband and I spent a month traveling around Italy for our honeymoon and stayed in Rome for one week at the end of the trip. Rome was our last stop and we were more than pleased with the Grand Flora. It is located on a very prestigious street with many other 5-star hotels. We thought the Grand Flora was located in a perfect spot just across from the Borghese Park and within walking distance to most everything. It is a cab ride to the Ancient City and Vatican but neither were very pricey (less than 10 euros). We were upgraded to a VERY large room (the size of some peoples homes) with a beautiful view of the Borghese Park and St. Peter's Dome. They serve breakfast every morning on their rooftop with sweeping views of Rome. The breakfast was amazing, they had the largest spread of any hotel we stayed at while on the trip. It was delicious with spectacular views. We had turndown service every night with some great chocolates as well. They do offer free internet which was nice so we could catch up on the news and stay in touch with family. The staff was very helpful (espcially the bell men).

My wife and I spent 3 night at Grand Flora at the head of Via Veneto and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location was in an exciting part of town with many shops, restaurants and points of interest within walking distance.

The hotel was very nicely appointed and was very clean throughout. Our room was a little dated but nice sized, clean, comfortable and most importantly, quiet.

Among the many things we liked, the two that stood out were the staff and the rooftop restaurant. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Every member (and there were MANY) seemed to have been selected for personality and poise. If the young lady who spent 20 minutes helping me get my cell phone going is reading, again I say gracie mille!

Along the same lines, a wonderful complimentary breakfast was served in a rooftop restaurant that was bright, well appointed and had the most sumtuous assortments of foods one could imagine. It also has an outdoor patio that looks West and North with views of the city, the beautiful Borgese gardens and park. Again, the entire staff in the restaurant was very anxious to help in any way that they could.

While there are less expensive addresses and hotels in which to stay in Rome, I would definetly recommend the Grand Flora for a full, enriching experience.

We went to Rome and Venice for our 25th anniversary and although this hotel is a bit expensive, it was totally worth it! It is pretty centrally located and you truly feel safe walking the streets at night around it. We ventured down several side streets and found several great places to eat, some even reasonably priced!

The hotel itself is beautiful and the views and ambiance from the rooftop are fantastic. The staff was fluent in English and made us feel quite welcome there. Great place!

We are just back from a 6 day stay at the Grand Flora and we had a wonderful time. The Grand Flora is a beautiful, clean hotel with very nice views from the rooftop restaurant and they provided excellent service. We felt very safe in the hotel and surrounding neighborhood. The metro is a 10 minute walk to the Piazza Barberini, or 15 minute walk underground (safe/well-traveled) to the Piazza Spagna. It is also a short, but challenging walk to the Piazza della Popolo through the Borghese Gardens.

We had a standard room with a queen size bed. It was very small. We asked to have the luggage rack at the end of our bed removed and that improved the situation, but the space still felt a little claustrophobic . We faced onto an inner courtyard and found the A/C in excellent working order and the room was quiet and sunny.

We did not ask to change rooms because we arrived at the hotel after a 10 hour flight at 7am and were permitted to check in immediately, despite the early hour. We were very grateful and neither of us spent a lot of time in the room anyway.

The bathroom was also very small, with no storage space for toiletries, but it was beautifully appointed. Everything was marble and the amenities included a bidet and hair dryer . The hot water was plentiful and the water pressure was excellent.

The breakfast buffet, which was included with our room price (60euro for two if it is not--yikes!), was excellent and left little to the imagination. There was a nice selection of cheeses, pastries, meats, etc. The eggs were a little dry, but they are hard to do well buffet-style. We had the option of dining indoors or out, which was nice as Rome was in the midst of a heat wave during our stay and we did choose the A/C of the dining room a few of the days. Breakfast was served from 6:30am-10:30am and they even permitted us to partake immediately upon our super-early check in. We very much appreciated that consideration.

The bartender is an artist with a dry martini. The small sidewalk cafe is an excellent place to enjoy a beverage and snack, and is a great place to people-watch on the Via Veneto. The staff here, as at breakfast, is attentive and friendly. We did not dine in the hotel as there are too many wonderful trattorias to explore in the city. We did not order room service, though we were told we could order breakfast in rather than go up to the restaurant for no extra charge. Again, the small quarters made dining en suite an unattractive option.

On check in we were provided with a cable for internet connection, but the speeds were pretty slow nonetheless. I don't recall if there was a fee for service.

Overall, we had a great time and would consider staying here again on a return trip to Rome, if we got a good rate. It is a very pricey hotel, but elegant and well-located.

My wife and I stayed at the Grand Flora in May of 2007. From a roof top restaurant offering a breakfast view of St. Peters dome, a ‘La dolce vita’ address and close proximity to the Rome Metro and Villa Borghese the location is priceless.
As platinum Marriott members we expect to be treated well but the Flora staff has exceeded and reset our expectations. The Concierge desk helped us get great tickets to local events, helped me catch up from 20 years absence from Roma and recommended us to a wonderful restaurant around the corner. The entire staff seemed committed to anticipating our desires and satisfying them.
Our room was comfortable and spotless. We enjoyed the gourmet chocolates on our bed; these were not your usual hotel good night chocolate.
If you are taking a cab from the airport or train station ask to be taken to the Hotel Flora. This property has been the Hotel Flora for many years but only recently a Marriott property. We found that asking to be driven to the Marriott often yielded blank looks from cab drivers but mentioning the Flora seemed to work without fail.
On our last visit my wife talked me into leaving my computer at home. Never again! The Flora’s ‘business center’ has a single internet connected computer and was monopolized by young adults in the evenings. Internet connectivity is free in the rooms, remember to bring your computer!
I should mention that this is an expensive hotel but you really get your money’s worth in terms of quality service, property and location. La dolce vita!
Roma will be a more frequent destination just so we can enjoy a few days at this fine hotel.

We found the Rome Marriott Grand Hotel Flora to be nearly perfect for us. We spent our first night and our last five nights in Italy there.

The lobby is spacious, bright and comfortable. The rooms are large by European standards and well maintained. The bathroom we had for the last five nights had both a shower and a bathtub. There is free internet in the room. On the first floor there are two computers available for 30 minutes at a time for free, together with a free printer.

The first room we stayed in had a view of the Via Veneto. The second room had a view of the walls by Borghese Park.

We found the staff to be first rate and very friendly. The concierges were very helpful. They made good suggestions about restaurants and places to visit. For example, the concierge told us about a concert featuring operatic arias that we were very pleased to have attended.

Before we checked out, the bellhops were able to weigh our luggage, so that we can avoid problems at the airport.

We ate breakfast once at the Marriott. Breakfast is served on the roof on the seventh floor. You have good views of the Vatican and large parts of Rome from the roof.

The location is great. The hotel is next to the southern entrance to the Villa Borghese Park, which is a very nice place to walk, bike ride and just relax on a bench. It is also the home of Villa Borghese Gardens. The hotel is not a difficult walk to the central part of Rome. The bus lines are convenient and there is a cabstand right around the corner. There are several very good restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel.

We were very pleased to have stayed at this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at the Marriott Grand Flora for 3 nights at the end of an almost 3 week trip around Italy. This was a very pleasant stay - here's some info:

- we had a very large executive king room with a view of the gardens
- the view from the rooftop at breakfast is spectacular - one of the highlights of the hotel in my opinion (and a very nice breakfast buffet with a wide range of hot and cold choices)
- the hotel is located in a nice area, near the US embassy and other upscale hotels. it is a bit of a walk from the major tourist attractions, however
- we asked the concierge for assistance with restaurant reservations - some were better than others but they definitely were trying to be helpful!
- we needed a laundromat, and we walked 15 minutes to the closest one (the laundry service at the hotel is quite expensive!)

Given that hotels in Rome are typically very expensive and the rooms are quite small, I think this was a good value for the money and I would stay here again.
