We were given a room on the first floor, and it was noisy beyond tolerable levels.

Hot water did not run in the late morning (around 10 a.m.) when I took showers on the first two days we were there.

3rd stay at Marriott since 2000. Rooms not really updated since then, getting a little tired. Room are smallish, required by hotel to get 3 rooms for family of six. Location is fantastic, easy walk to Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and short cab rides to all other major sites. Front Desk very helpful. Breakfast so so for price, go around corner of hotel on left side to first street, go 25 feet to cafeon right there for great coffee, pastries, lite lunch and geltato. Hotel now allows limited point award stay which compared to $ US 450 per night is way to go. Concierege dinner recommnedations usually overpriced busts.

We arrived from the train station and were very happy to see that the Grand Flora was on such a beautiful tree lined street (be careful of the "fees" that the cabbie might try to push on you) . We informed the Grand Flora that we were on our honeymoon and within an hour of us getting into the room, we had a bottle of "bubbly' and chocolates sent to the room.

It should be noted that we used points for the room, and if it wasn't for trip advisor we would have never stayed here. I tried to get the room through Marriott on points but was told it was not available. When I read I should call the hotel directly, I was informed that I could use the points and literally saved us a few thousand......please call them directly and try it this way.

The Grand Flora is in a beautiful location and we were given a room looking out onto the Borghese gardens. The rooms might need a new layer of wall papering but besides this we found the room to be just fine. Wifi was excellent and included in the room rate....something not found at other places on our vacation.

The staff including the concierge and receptuion were excellent. One particular woman( her name might have been Sonia or Sonya) at the front desk was very helpful as she explained the rules and laws for taxi's in the city.

The rooftop breakfast is a bit expensive, but worth the view of the St. Peter's and other sights throughout the city. Plenty of great restaurants within walking distance and you are only an 8 Euro ride to the vatican. Enjoy your stay.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and loved the location and the service. My husband is platinum with marriott and we stayed here on points. It is pretty pricey but worth it for me since I am somewhat of a hotel snob.

The breakfast at the rooftop terrace was amazing. The choice were good but the view was marvelous.

The hotel is within walking distance to a lot of sights. You can walk to Spanish steps (I highly recommend walking there, it's just lively and beautiful), Borghese gardens are just next door and the Trevi fountain is not a bad walk eiher.

The hop on hop off tour left accross from the Savoy hotel which is also a block away.

There were many places to eat but our favorite was San Marco, a local joint that the Conceirge recommended. It was friendly, casual and great food.

We also took a day trip to Capri and a trip to the Vatican that the Conceirge helped with and that was great as well.

Overall Rome is really really beautiful and the people I found very friendly and most people spoke good English.

I highly recommend the hotel if you can get a room there on points (it's actually pretty hard to get room there on points) or if you can afford to pay the high price. To me it's worth the money when you are there for a short time and are looking for a nice hotel in a great location .

This was our first trip to Rome and we wanted to stay someplace nice. Marriott Grand Flora is very nice. We stayed using points and were upgraded to a Jr. Suite - very, very nice.
Hotel is in great upscale location. Plenty to do within walking distance. Good selection of restaurants in area. Metro station not too far.
The Jr. Suite was a good size bedroom and comfortable living/sitting room.
Roof restaurant for breakfast was closed, but looked like a great place to start the day. You can see the Vatican from the roof.
Doorman was very helpful with directions, taxis, etc.
Internet service provided free.

Our stay in Rome was greatly enhanced by the friendly and helpful staff of this hotel. We arrived at nine am on Friday morning and were able to check in early, which allowed us to freshen up and enjoy a full day in Rome. The concierge and staff all spoke English and helped us with directions to all of our meeting points in a prompt and friendly manner. They also made arrangements for our transportation to and from the hotel. The hotel is beautiful and clean. Our room, a junior suite, was comfortable and the bathroom well appointed with linens and supplies. The shower water pressure was outstanding! Internet connection was conveniently available in both our room and the main lobby. A wonderful place to stay for an American's first trip to Rome. My only complaint would be the loud noise of a truck that awoke us two days in a row at around 6am coming from the streeet adjacent to our room.

Even by European standards this hotel is not a 5 star. Yes, if you want a big room on the most expensive street in Rome, then book here. The rooms and bedding are outdated and old. The beds were uncomfortable, no covers, and the bathroom was small (not unexpected in EU).

If you want location and "comfort", then go to the InterContinetal at the top of the Spanish Steps. The rooms are smaller, but the bedding is cozy comfort and the bathrooms are much bigger (Rm 123 is great!), or ask for a room with a view of the inner courtyard.

The only saving grace at the Marriott is the breakfast buffet, that was included because of my status. And Sonya the front desk lady that works the evening shift.
