Rome Marriott Park Hotel
Travel Blogs from Rome
Took the train from Florence to Rome this afternoon. We fly out Thursday morning. We had first class tickets for ItaliaRail. I guess because it was an afternoon trip the first class was just a bit more than coach. Nice choice as there was plenty of room for our baggage and comfy seats. I also think we lucked out with our cab driver. There was no …
I had three cups of coffee this morning, if one can call the tiny things they serve coffee in, a cup. It took three just to have 3/4 of a mug. we did the breakfast buffet in the hotel so could have as many coffees as we wanted. It was tiring getting up so many times!
I re-read my blog picture captions and see Marie is at sinner not dinner. Hahaha.
We forgot to get stamps in France so didn't mail postcards but we now have Italian stamps so are good to go.
... An hour drive through night traffic and we arrived at our hotel to collect key then a short drive away to our Rooms. They do things different in Italy! We are staying at the Hotel die Consoli about 300 meters from the Vatican. How amazing is that!
We unpacked and went for a walk it is about 9:30pm we found a cafe and had a bite to eat. We could see the Vatican from here but we all felt too tired to take a closer look and retraced our steps to the hotel and had a glorious long ...
... I was headed to underneath me for the first time.
This place is gorgeous. Rolling hills, all kinds of sweet trees, nice cars, and we landed to an amazing sunrise. Found my luggage and cabdriver fairly quick after getting my US dollars changed to Euros (which are so much cooler than dollars by the way) and was off to the residence.
This was another big shock. The living room, dining room and kitchen, and bathroom are all ...

as if nothing has changed - I'm back in my old room at the hostel but have a better bed, and everything is pretty much the same. Fabio and I caught up on the news of the Eurocup, which seems like ages ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
My traveling companion booked this because of the price and because she trusts the Marriott chain.. The room was nicely appointed and clean, the staff attentive, and they made getting into the city convenient with a shuttle service that cost 12 euro round trip or car service if you wanted for about 40 euros. They also had a very nice breakfast and a bar with some tasty gelato. (The strawberry, lemon and pistachio flavors were quite good.)
Downside is that it's a bit too far from the city center. If you're out too late for the last shuttle pickup, a taxi ride will cost you quite a pretty euro.

Historical Traveler Reviews Rome Marriott Park Hotel
As a Marriott Platinum member I booked this hotel as a an award stay for the last 3 days in April (no rooms were availbale at the other Marriott in central Rome). The hotel is located about 10-15 minutes from the airport, on a high hill, in an area with many office buildings (Totyota, Alitalia, etc..) and several new apartment buildings. As others have noted there are no restaurants in the immediate area (We would stop at a little market in central Rome and buy snacks and soft drinks/water and take them back to our room). Walking outside the hotel grounds is not adviseable because of some wild dogs that roam the area outside the hotel gates.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights prior to driving to Venice. I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and I knew the hotel was new. I was also a loyal Marriott customer and as mentioned in other reviews, the price is a lot better than other Rome hotels.
We stayed as a group of couples for a weekend when unfortunately our first hotel was overbooked (this would have been in central rome).
The staff were unhelpful and rooms expensive especially considering you had to pay extra for the Spa and pool (£18.00 each to use both) and breakfast (from £15.00 each).
Rome itself was great but we had to trek in and back (although the hotel did lay on a free shuttle although this was nearly always full so we had to use taxis anyway).
My advise is find a hotel in central Rome with no facilities as there is so much to see and do in Rome you do not need anything in your hotel apart from friendly staff who are certainly not working at the Marriot.
Stayed at the Marriott Park Hotel for 1 week. The hotel is outside of Rome. The hotel is nice and rooms are very clean. They have a few quirks to work out but due to being so new we overlooked the issues. There is only one restaurant in the hotel at this time and it is pricey. The hotel offers a free shuttle, first trip to the city is at 8am and last pick up from the city is 11pm. The shuttle drops and picks up at the Piazza Cavour. The ride is about 30 minutes. A taxi is about 30 Euros, to /from the city. Make sure you take the address of the hotel if you use a taxi, since it is new noone really knows where it is located.
A taxi from the airport is about 40-50 Euros. No shuttle so you need to use a car service or taxi.
My family and I had 3 rooms at the Rome Marriott Park Hotel for 8 nights late March, 2007. Check-in and check-out went smoothly. The rooms are decorated with fine appointments and the amenities are Marriott's new Aromatherapy Brand. Marriott's new Revive Bedding is very comfortable. There are two marble, back to back bathrooms in each room. One has a shower, toilet, bidet, warming rack for towels and sink. The other has a bathtub, warming rack for towels and sink. Very convenient and very well designed. The television looked like a 32 inch flat panel TV with a few channels in English (CNN, Fox News, BBC News). There are no DVD players provided. A good sized, easy to use electronic safe is provided in the closet. Lighting is controlled by inserting your room key in a slot as you enter. When you take your key out of this slot, all lights will go out within a minute or two. To have access to light in the middle of the night (going to the bathroom, etc.), leave your key in the slot and turn off all lights manually. You can then turn on whichever light you want as needed. Wired internet access is available in the rooms, but is very expensive. One hour is 7.50 euros and 24 hours (continuous) is 22 euros. That's about US$30 per day! I was unable to locate an ice machine. The housekeeping staff does not routinely provide ice in the rooms. One must have to contact room service for ice. A very nice touch is the complimentary coffee and tea service provided in the lobby from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM daily.
Quest'anno poco prima di Natale e prima di tornare a casa in Nord America ci siamo fermati al Marriot Park di Roma e siamo stati benissimo.
Tutto considerato è stato un buon soggiorno in una bellissima camera accogliente e dove tutto è nuovo di zecca.
Happy new year
Overall a good stay in excellent, brand new comfortable rooms. Here are some tips:
The hotel can book you a limo from the airport it is 50 Euro each way. You need to email the hotel as the info is not on their website.
The complimentary shuttle service to the paizza cavour (rome centre) is excellent, on time throughout the day although there is no info about it on the hotel website. Only a basic gym is open at the moment.
breakfast and room service in general is pretty pricey, pick up a nice sandwich from the bar near the shuttle service stop
don't forget, taxis start the meter from when the hotel calls them, NOT when they arrive.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Rome Marriott Park just before Christmas this year prior to flying back to North America. It was a welcomed luxurious ending to a good trip in Italy.
