TravelPod Member ReviewsThe St. Regis Rome
The St Regis was a very friendly but also high quality hotel. There is a huge lobby which is a pleasant place to sit and have a drink after a long day walking around the sites. The hotel rooms were very luxurious with a huge double bed and a fantastic power shower as well as a bath. It was a bit more expensive but you get what you pay for.

Stunning hotel with impeccable service! Architectural details mixed with modern conveniences and top-notch St Regis service! The well-trained butler staff take care of everything from your morning espresso to bedtime milk and cookies for the bambini!

Historical Traveler Reviews The St. Regis Rome
Best hotel stay of my life!
Had planned to stay at the Hassler and was disappointed that they were booked. What a wonderful surprise to discover this hotel! It is expensive - but if you are on a budget, don't stay here. The room I stayed in had a name rather than number, which was a nice touch, and murals in the theme of the room covered the walls. Big casement windows opened onto a central courtyard full of songbirds. The hotel put me on the butler floor, and the butler for my room actually unpacked for me, steamed my clothes, and hung them in the closet. In the morning, as a wake up call, the butler came in and woke me with an espresso and biscotti. It was incredible! I dream of going back here. Hope you get the chance to go.
Spectacular but Exspensive
The average rating was derived from averaging the hotel's physical plant which was incredible, and the staff which was sub-par, snotty, and not very helpful. The hotel room was top-notch, and the gym(for a hotel) was amazing, but everything at the hotel is expensive, too expensive. The breakfast buffett (which was not very good) was 50 euros, and the staff acted like they were doing me a favor by speaking to me despite all the money I was spending. If you want to stay in a visually stunning hotel I would recommend the St. Regis, but bring lots of patients for the rude staff, and your wallet. Because if they could find away to over-charge you for breathing the St. Regis air, they would.
A ritz in Rome
Stayed here whilst on business in Rome last year. It's magnificent, a miniature Ritz hotel and it was designed by Cesar Ritz. It's luxurious, opulent and very expensive. Breakfast cost as much as a night in cheap hotel. I think I was worth it.
I've stayed at the St. Regis Grand in March 2002 and had a wonderful stay there. The rooms are gorgeous, luxurious bathrooms with beautiful caramel marble and Hermes toileteries. The common spaces are also luxurious, with marble everywhere. Wonderful breakfast and best service. Only cons I have about it is its location, a bit far from good restaurants and good shopping. I highly recommend it.
The most WONDERFUL hotel I have ever stayed in
My husband and I have stayed at the St. Regis Grand Hotel on two occassions. We got married in Rome and had the reception at the St.
Regis Grand. The staff is very warm and welcoming and will do anything to accommodate you and make your stay the best possible. The bar/lounge is so romantic with the pianist playing while you are having cappacuino or enjoying a glass of wine. This is definitely a hotel I would recommend to anyone and the St. Regis Grand is my hotel of choice of anywhere in the world.
Old, stuffy and not worth the $$$
I stay at hotels all over the world (~80 nights a year). For a quick trip to Rome I booked the St. Regis @ a rate of ~500 euros/night, it isn't in a bad location--a thirty minute walk to the forum/coliseum. It was comfortable and had Hermes bath products.This is a hotel drips with an old world moneyed feel. I felt like I should be walking through the lobby sporting my smoking jacket, discussing my latest hunting adventure. I'm sure this place was great a hundred years ago and is still great for those concerned about facades but Id take a local B&B any day.
An Amazing Hotel
My stay at the St. Regis Grand was an amazing experience. The hotel lobby is absolutely stunning. The rooms are regal and tastefully decorated. Each room contains it own unique fresco that is positioned over the bed. In addition, the staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. Everyone, that I came into contact with had a working knowledge of English. If you are looking for a hotel with classic Italian style, this is the place to stay (it is also very romantic).
Afternoon tea in the hotel lounge is highly recommended. This is one of my favorite hotels.
Nice at a Price
I've visited most of the high end hotels in Rome and this one is the best. Its very polished, has helpful staff, beautifully appointed rooms and an amazing lobby. Its not cheap, but if you want the best this is the place to stay.
Best Luxury Hotel in Rome
Overall, it was one of the best hotels I have stayed at. Up there in ranking with the Peninsula in HK and The Amstel Hotel in Amsterdam....you get the picture. I just came back yesterday...I was extremely suprised at how large the room was relative to other hotels I have stayed at (Intercontinental is really run-down and Hassler and Eden are over rated and overpriced) in Rome. All the staff at the hotel were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. Everything was recently renovated so it was very beautiful-baroque style. I saw a few celebrities while I was there just walking around...The restaurant there called the VIVENDO is also a top rated restaurant. The only neg thing is the location if u are the type of a tourist looking for a prime location rather than a luxury hotel. Its near few subway stop but its like 15minute walk to any of the main attractions other than the Palace Barberini which is a great museum. I will definitely come back and stay here.
The Grand Hotel was...truly Grand
I stayed at the St. Regis Grand...formerly known as "Il Grand Hotel" for a few days over New Years in 2001/02. It is definitely an experience I would like to recommend.
In general, I love the hotel experience and in Rome I wanted to experience staying in a grand, opulent place which reminded me of the days of old. The St. Regis definitely provided this. If the entrance is grand, the lobby is more grand, decorated predominantly in red and gold. The rooms are very spacious. One caveat: Starwood has recently restored them and one piece of furniture which doesn't really fit the bill is the TV/dresser, which looks very common. But everything else is very nicely done.
Importantly, the service was impeccable...very attentive and kind employees made us feel very at home in a grand surrounding - something not so easy to find (especially in Italy). The complementary champagne was a nice touch on New Year's Eve. Well done.
Definitely a five-star experience which I will try to re-experience soon. Rome was not bad either.

... wonderful birds eye veiw of the Bacilica half way up. When I finished the climb you really get an actual feeling how big The Vatican is. The view of the entire city of Rome and a Birds eye view of the famous Vatican Square. I headed back down and headed into the church. This is the church of all churches. Has art, scuplutres, even the bodies of dead popes inside the buidling. Michelangelo designed the dome of the buidling and died before it was complete. This building had ...
... walking around outside all morning and early afternoon long. Right now I'm reading a book called ''Eat, Pray, Love'' and this lady goes to Italy and eats like crazy. She gains 30 pounds after 4 months of staying there. At first, when I read this, I thought that was crazy. But, after being here for 36 hours... I don't blame her at all. At least we plan to do a lot of walking, so we won't get too fat. I'm just glad I'm not on a carb-free diet. I'd starve ...
... Lateran), which was the seat of the papacy until the 14th century - so of course it's huge and ornate as well. Joe had to go to class, but I did a little more sightseeing before heading back - I went to see Bernini's Four Fountains, which depict the four seasons. The fountains are at 4 corners of an intersection, so it was kind of hard to stand back and appreciate them without getting run over by a car. I went back to Joe's to pack up my things and say goodbye ...
