We stayed there as a post excusion from a Mediterranean cruise. I was extremely disappointed. After 3 trips between tbe front desk & our room because our cardkey wouldn’t let us in, they discoved the door was broken. They then changed our room and said they upgraded us. The only upgrade was that we could see the street and not another building. There was black mold in our bathroom & rotted wood around the bathroom door frame. Tbe furniture and carpets were all stained and dirty. When we were climbing the stairs to the first floor the corners of the stairs were filled with dust bunnies that didn’t happen overnight. I have stayed at many Westins all over the world and am a Bonvoy member and I was truly shocked at the condition of this hotel. On a positive note, their breakfast buffet was delicious with a wide selection of food offerings & absolutely wonderful coffee. However, this is not enough to warrant a 5-star rating.

It’s been about 10 years since my stay here at the Westin Excelsior in Rome but I remember my stay like it was yesterday! I was fortunate enough to tag along with my father on a half business trip half vacation and this was our first stop. Rome is beyond incomprehensibly gorgeous and this hotel included is stately and awe-inspiring! I was absolutely petrified during my stay as the building is quite old and as someone who’s quite spiritual I picked up on a lot of energy, not sure if it was the room or the hotel itself but I was very uneasy the whole time…which was so cool!! The staff was so friendly and accommodating, the hotel is luxurious and opulent while cozy at the same time. My next stop after this was the Excelsior in Florence and I have to say I’d 10/10 recommend an Excelsior to anyone traveling to Italy!!
