On a trip to Italy this past spring, I only had one night to spend in my favorite city — Rome. One of the best part of my job as the editor and publisher of Dream of Italy is the chance to try new hotels. I’m fairly competitive about it actually. I love reviewing a hotel in DOI before the rest of the travel world knows about it. My plans were foiled a bit in this case however. Between the time I booked a room at Rome’s Villa Laetitia and the time I arrived. The hotel, owned by member of the Fendi family, made its way to the Conde Nast Traveler Hot List. Part of what made Villa Laetitia intriguing to me was its affordable rates — especially given its link to the Fendi family. Wondering how my stay measured up? Read my review, which I just made a free access article at the main Dream of Italy Web site.
P.S. – I’m hopefully headed back to Rome at the end of the month. Any suggestions for other new hotels I should check out? Leave your ideas in the comments section.
