My friend and I stayed at the St Regis for 4 nights. We only wish it could be longer because everything was exceptional from check in to departure. Beautiful food and wonderful cocktails not to mention the impeccably handsome waiters who were always attentive. The twin room we had was a little smaller than we expected but nonetheless luxuriously furnished and the most comfortable beds ever. An amazing rain shower glass enclosure with the option of normal shower head. Bathrobes and slippers just completed the comfort.
Getting around Rome was incredibly easy, taking a slow walk visiting several street cafes in glorious sunshine en route to Vatican city.
A word of warning to people visiting the Vatican - do not be taken in by the multitude of ticket touts promising quick entry for a mere 25 euros, The security line pass fairly quickly and entry to the Vatican is completely free. The Sistine Chapel / Vatican museum do charge 16 euros but that includes both and you don't have to have a guided tour. We were overwhelmed by the beautiful tapestries and multitudes of statues on display. You could easily spend a whole day there and still not see a fraction of the art and treasures - some dating back thousands of years so 16 euros is reasonably good value and no need to worry about food as there are restaurants and snack bars throughout the new Atrium addition. Rome can be very expensive as it was for us but that was because we wanted to push the boat out and have luxury all around so bearing in mind that this was our first 5* hotel in Rome, I can't praise it highly enough - you won't go wrong with the St Regis.
