Review: Rome Marriott Park, Junior Suite
The Rome Marriott Park is one of four Marriotts in Rome: Boscolo, Grand Flora, and Courtyard are the others. I actually ended up staying at the Boscolo and it’s an incredible hotel. The itinerary for the trip had us staying at the Marriott Park Rome a few different times. All but one time the Platinum status was recognized and an upgrade was given. The only time it wasn’t recognized was when we used one of my mom’s credit card category 5 reward nights. Because she’s a silver they wouldn’t give the same upgrade that they did on the prior two stays, but did give us the other amenities: welcome gift, club access, late check out. Sort of odd if you ask me as there was a Platinum member in the room and we’d stayed there 3 prior times.
The lobby is really cool with a fresco ceiling.
Rome Marriott Park Hotel: Junior Suite
The Rome Park Marriott sits atop a hill overlooking the landscape surrounding Rome’s international airport: FCO. It’s far enough away that there are no real noise issues and when we arrived it was hosting the racers of the Mille Miglia : an open road race that took place from 1927-1957 and is still commemorated annually. It was pretty awesome arriving to the hotel amidst dozens of open air roadsters ranging from Mercedes SLs to antique Ferraris. Amazing really.
- When: May 2016

The coolest part of the hotel is the Lobby:
On back you find the bar and restaurant.
After perusing the lobby for a quick second we headed to the room.
We had been upgraded to a Junior Suite an it was perfect. Miles and I had flown into to surprise my mom. Dad and I had done some sneaky planning and it went off without a hitch…well almost – the hotel was SOLD OUT! Luckily they accommodated us with an upgrade and a suite. Worked perfect.
The suite had ample storage
The hotel provided a great place to rest after a long day of traveling and was only 100 Euros. We headed into the Boscolo the next day to be swaddled in 5* luxury. This hotel really can’t be beat for the purpose it serves: Access to a major Italian highway, proximity to the airport, and a nice place to stay. It’s nothing uber fancy but that’s not the impetus behind a stay here.
The Concierge will help arrange shuttle transport, tours, and when my mom got sick he even arranged a for the pharmacy to bring us medicine. I’ll write a report later specifically on this incident where I discovered a new app called MedinAction that services Expats and travelers who need medical attention in english.
We woke up the next morning and enjoyed this great view
Executive Lounge: Open to Gold and Platinum members
They serve snacks and drinks andopen the patio door during the day. Very nice breeze. I also love that all the drinks are in glass bottles. Love that.
Amenities: Buffet breakfast included for Gold and Platinum members
This is an absouletly fantastic place to stay for 100 Euros. All the added amenities knocked the price down by at least half again. Great value.
Other Property features: Lounge areas and HUGE swimming pool
It was a little cold to go swimming, but I can imagine this would be a great place to chill during a hot summer day.
This hotel worked perfectly for our plans. We needed a hotel to crash at outside the airport as we arrived after midnight, and also a hotel that we could use as a base of operations. We ended up staying here 4 separate times. One nice amenity that the hotel provided was baggage storage. My parents had flown in from Switzerland and had an entire suitcase packed for freezing weather and Italy was in the 80s. The hotel allowed us to leave bags there prior to the Swiss trip and then each time we stayed there as we commuted around Italy. We essentially packed a smaller bag for a couple nights here and there and left the large baggage at this hotel.
A lot of central Rome hotels are egregiously expensive whether you are using points or cash and this was a perfect option for us. If you’re looking for a hub as you tour around Italy this could be a great option to use as we did. If you’re looking to primarily stay in central Rome than you’ll want to pay more attention to my Boscolo review as it was an incredible central Rome option.
