Radisson Blu Rome – Review

When I earned the huge amount of points last year in the multiple Club Carlson promotions I wanted to make sure I got the best use of those points by leveraging their Radisson Blu hotels.  I’ve stayed at their St. Martin property and most recently I had the pleasure of staying at their property in Rome, Italy.

Our stay at this property was possible for 44,000 Club Carlson points for two nights leveraging the last night free feature for having the Club Carlson Visa.

The hotel is wonderfully located only 2 blocks from the train station.  If you are expecting to travel out of Rome much like we did, it is convenient to have the train station so close.  Additionally on your connection to and from the airport you can jump on a train that takes you direct to and from FCO airport.

Reception/Check-in

Check-in was smooth and we were promptly offered an upgrade to a Junior Suite for being gold members.  The reception has a very nice modern look and has an impressive window showing that below the hotel there are old Roman ruins!

Room

As I mentioned we were offered a Junior Suite based on our status and I’ll tell you for European room size standards this was a nice upgrade.  The decor was very modern with a tub immediately behind the bed.

Pool

This property has the pool on the top floor.  It was unfortunately too cold to take advantage of but would make for a great summertime dip.  Views of the adjacent train station is also spectacular from up here!

Overall I found this property to be in a great location and a great option when staying in a huge city like Rome.  Many of the key spots around the city are either a short walk away or a Metro ride away.  Rome lends it self to walking and we did plenty of it.  The Colosseum is only a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel!
