Luxury Hotel Review: Westin Excelsior, Rome

Luxury Hotel Review: Westin Excelsior, Rome

I love modern and chic hotels but sometimes I want a hotel with a real sense of place that connects with the history of the city. That’s when I was looking to book a hotel for our couple of night stay in Rome I decided on the Westin Excelsior.
