Rome: Hassler v. St. Regis

I am trying to decide between St. Regis and Hassler. I am planning to be in Rome for the first time at the end of December. This will be me and my wife's first time in Rome. Which would you stay if money were no object and why?

I would choose the Hassler.

Definitely the Hassler because it's privately owned, full of character, and it isn't a big boring international chain hotel like the St Regis. At the heart of every St Regis . . . is a Sheraton. If you want a luxury beach resort then something like a St Regis might fit the bill . . . but in Rome? Not for me.

I would not stay at either (having stayed at both). Hotel de Russie is by far the best.

And I'll add Portrait Roma to the mix. Stunning design and incredible personalized service as well as a perfect location just off the Via Condotti.

When I read your positive comments about De Russie I wonder how it is possible that I missed the essence of this property

I only stayed at St Regis and found it pretty good. Consider the Price I would perhaps choose it, because Hassler seems to have some really ugly rooms and even suites.

Maybe it depends on when you stayed. I have seen a huge improvement since Mauro Governato took over as GM this year.

I too am a fan of Hotel de Russie. Love the garden. Make sure to et a room overlooking it.

+1 for de Russie. Calm in the middle of a hectic city!
