We arrived just before noon and were graciously checked in hours before the hotel's standard time. Exhausted from 24 hours of travel, we were still awed when we saw our room: antique furnishings, a canopied 4-poster, generous storage, flat screen TV, desk, sitting area and large, marble-tiled bathroom with towel heater, tub/shower combo, Hermes toiletries, a bidet and two sinks. Two sets of French windows opened onto a flower-filled courtyard. There was no hint of the hustle and bustle of the city outside, even during a transportation strike that clogged Rome's streets with honking cars and scooters. The bed was a cloud of crisp, smooth, linens, down comforter and four heavenly pillows. It was worlds away from American luxury hotels, even though it's part of the Starwood group, and the perfect introduction to a European holiday. The rooftop bar was elegant with views to die for, and staff made us feel welcome and relaxed when we visited early afternoon in our casual sightseeing clothes. For a special getaway, when cost is irrelevant, the Eden cannot be matched.
