This was a last minute decision to stay at the Hilton at the airport.
You see, we had booked a hotel on Via Nazionale in anticipation of spending a week in Rome on our honeymoon. We arrived at the Termini train station after the train ride from the airport into the city, and tried to find a cab to take us to our hotel. Sadly, we weren't good enough for the cab drivers, who told us to walk the 600 meters to our hotel. I presume they wouldn't take us because it was too close, but after a long flight and with luggage, walking in an unfamiliar city that looks and feels rather 'rough' was not what my new wife and I were looking for.
So we went back to the airport and changed our flight bookings to leave much earlier than we had planned on.
The reason for all of this commentary is so that you know that when I say that the Hilton was an oasis in a desert, you know what I mean. They really helped my new wife and I perserve our honeymoon happiness after a frustrating, tiring, and disappointing day. The employees at the hotel were the first friendly people we met in the country.
