We arrived in Rome to begin our Regent Cruise. We were booked in the Westin and were so pleased to discover the location was perfect for our plans. If you are visiting the Galleria Borghese, this hotel is a great choice. It is also close to the Spanish steps and the Trevi Fountain. By the way, buy your tickets online for the Galleria Borghese. They are usually sold out weeks in advance during the summer.
The service is very good, from the bellmen to the concierge. We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast, which is more of a brunch, and a great start to a long day of walking and exploring the sites of Rome. The room had been renovated with a new bathroom but the bedroom was a bit dated. I do recommend that you request an interior room if you want a good night's sleep. Our room was so quiet and restful.
But the highlight of our stay was dinner in the restaurant, Doney, at a table on the Via Veneto. The food was exceptional, especially the risotto, and the activity on the Via Veneto is so entertaining! We spent three hours over dinner and enjoyed every moment. Do reserve a table in advance since everyone wants to eat outside when the weather is nice.
