Rock This:Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina by RockStar Hotels
There are so many beautiful hotels in Rome to choose from that it’s often confusing to find the perfect one; which is why I was so pleased to find RockStar Hotels. Their carefully selected and personally inspected collection of boutique properties makes booking seamless. They represent only the most unique hotels who have a deep commitment to guest service. One of their hotels in Rome is the Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina which is on the site of Emperor Nero’s mother Agrippina’s estate and Villa. A short walk to St. Peter’s Square and the Vatican, it is across the Tiber River from what is centralized Rome and in a quieter neighborhood bordering the more exuberant Trastevere.
The Gran Meliá Rome Villa Agrippina by RockStar Hotels is well-known for exceptional guest service and is the epitome of luxury accommodation in an elegant and spacious property near the Vatican. RockStar Hotels offers a membership plan that gets you many extras during your stay including a customized RockStar Travel Guide specific to the hotel and surrounding neighborhood. You also get 8% cash back on every stay booked through RockStar at RockStar-Hotels.com , little gifts, and special packages just for RockStar members.
Stay on Gran Meliá RedLevel for special VIP privileges; described by Gran Meliá as “luxury without limits.” A favorite is the in-room menu of aromatherapy sprays; select the scent you like and when you return from a day of wandering the busy streets of Rome, you can delight in a cool, elegant room or suite touched with the light scent of orange blossoms or lavender. In the afternoon, you are welcomed into the private RedLevel Lounge for an Aperol Spritz to enjoy aperitivo like the Italians do.
The rooms and suites are dressed as only the Italians can manage: chic, effortless, and relaxing. And as Gran Meliá is a Spanish luxury company, luscious silky drapes and details and finishes of the highest quality meld seamlessly in the décor. Paintings by the masters, found throughout Rome have been copied and blown up to a large scale creating romantic focal points in the rooms. A commodious white tub for two in some of the rooms (beginning with the Premium Rooms) is enclosed in glass and beckons to you. In RedLevel you can order a customized bubble bath with floating red rose petals to await you.
The expansive terrace of the Emperor Penthouse and Wellness Suite RedLevel is the ultimate Rome experience. Have your breakfast and cappuccino here or go to the bright restaurant before your spa date at Spa My Blend By Clarins, or a leisurely swim in the pool. Gran Meliá is a Spanish hospitality company with a lovely tradition at every Gran Meliá destination. She is the Lady In Red: each guest is welcomed by a beautiful lady dressed in red who is also your personal concierge. And for any experience level Gran Meliá “Red Glove” service is at your disposal. As a resort-style oasis within the city of Rome, Gran Meliá Rome Agrippina is an opulent option and RockStar Hotels is the way to book your luxury experience.
