Next to the Villa Borghese on Via Veneto
Rome Marriot Grand Hotel Flora is on Via Veneto in the neighborhood of the same name. This area was featured prominently in Fellini's famous film "La Dolce Vita," and is one of the most beautiful and expensive areas in Rome. Many major tourist sights are within walking distance, as are a variety of cafes, restaurants, shops, and bars. Some sights, such as the Pantheon and Colosseum, will require a bit of a trek.
The Marriott Grand Hotel Flora is located near the Villa Borghese gardens. Traditional, airy rooms are decorated in soft tones and feature flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and nice bathrooms with intricate tile work. The highlight of the property is the Alianto Roof Terrace with panoramic views of the park and city, where breakfast is served. The cozy lobby has plenty of lounge space and an appealing fireplace. A lobby bar and restaurant are nice amenities, but Wi-Fi is expensive and the business center is on the small side. The location is within walking distance of the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps, but more ancient sights such as the Pantheon and Colosseum will be a bit of a trek.
