Trip Report St. Regis Hotel in Rome

Jump to last reply

Just spent four nights at the wonderful Sy. Regis in Rome. This is a world class hotel, housed in a truly beautiful, very old building. Our room was spacious, the bed very comfortable, but THE memorable things about our visit were the MARVELOUS "Butler" service and the SENSATIONAL breakfast, both of which were included in our room rate.

The Butler brought us THE best coffee we had during our 12 night visit to Rome, Tuscany and Florence. She also did impeccable pressing of my dress shirts and everything was done perfectly and with a graciousness that was truly remarkable.

The buffet breakfast, with a friendly chef doing egg dishes to order was just out of this world. Not one of those overblown brunch type things, just pretty much anything one might want for breakfast, lots of selections, with all items being top quality and they served it until 11am!!! It was also served in their magnificent salon, in which you felt you were the star in some wonderful MGM film from decades past.

On the minus side: the shower was a bit cramped, with no foot rest on which one could wash their feet, which is a pet peeve of mine. Very difficult for my wife to shave her legs. There was only one sink, and two would have been much better. The room was not dirty, but it was not spotless either and I felt that housekeeping needed a bit of improvement. The furnishings were a bit gaudy for our taste and the sofa was downright uncomfortable.

All in all, the experience was a very positive one. IF we were ever going back to Rome--which we have ZERO thoughts of doing--it would be a no brainier to book the St. Regis again. However, Rome itself was a truly disappointing experience, as was Italy in general and we won't be coming back anytime soon. The best thing about Italy is how it makes you appreciate coming home to America.
