Shuttles, Rome's Fiumicino to Hotel

Checking on-line I have found a number of shuttle services that will transfer you from Rome’s Fiumicino Airport to Rome proper for what appears to be a reasonable price. Such as “Rome Fiumicino Airport to Rome City Hotel Shuttle Bus,” shown at the “Things to do in Rome” Website. I would like to be able to go from the airport to my hotel and back without worrying about fighting the populace at the Termini and other public venues of transportation with our luggage. We are also not in the Limo-Class category, and try not to throw largess out the windows as we pass. My son and I will stand out in any crowd as we are blond, freckled, oversized (we are 12'5" 500lbs), and unfortunately will draw attention (the kind I would like to avoid). Has anyone had any positive experience booking ahead on-line? Has anyone used any companies that they would recommend or stay away from?
As always, any advice given is greatly appreciated and Thank you in advance. Richard

I highly recommend http://www.limoservicerome.com/

I've used them many times. Cost is comparable to taxi. Also they'll be waiting for you outside customs with a sign with your name.

That's such a pity , because the train from Fumicino to Termini is soooo convenient!
I'm a little oversized myself , (but no freckles!!) , and I don't think anyone paid any attention...but it's cheap , convenient , you do avoid traffic , and then take a cab to your hotel, if it's a little far , because Rome is a small city , and most distances are very different compared to American ones , for instance.
