Rated 2 out of 5 Needed a hotel near Rome's airport for my wife and I without a car
My reservation confirmation never said there were three different buildings which each looked to be a staffed hotel to me. The taxi driver, after having asked if wa were sure, dropped us at the original, primary building which is now called building one. The staff checked me in and told my wife and I that we would be in building three which he thought we would enjoy better as the building was newer. (Note: Buildings one and three do NOT have a restaurant in the evenings. To reach the only operating restaurant in building two from three, walking is suggested, even in the rain! Quote: "It's only about fifty meters.")
It was a pouring rainstorm when we arrived, so they got us a shuttle to take us to building three after telling us there was no free shuttle to the airport in the morning from building three. One must walk to building two to catch only one of two shuttles to the airport the next morning at either 7:30am or 8:30am.
Needless to say, the 7:30 shuttle never arrived. It was alleged that the driver had encountered a flat tire on the shuttle. The hotel's solution was to call us a taxi for nearly twice the rate they were going to charge for the shuttle.
When I asked for an Internet Kiosk for printing boarding pass the next day, one lady at the front desk went out of her way by saying she would do it for me! Thanks for that!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robbb MUCH BELOW STARWOOD STANDARDS
I waited one week before writing a review, hoping in an email or telephone call after the disaster of last Tuesday. Nothing, this is the best confirmation about careless attitude of the entire management of this hotel.
I'm a Platinum Lifetime member, stayed at Starwood properties more than 1100 nights until today. Many, many times I have had small incidents with this property and tried to solve the questions directly with the hotel...
It's not easy for me to explain in English what happened this time, just to say the treatment I have received was unacceptable: I leave the hotel just a couple of hours after check in and goes to another Starwood property in town where I received the right treatment that's expected in a Starwood property.
This is what happened: I had a confirmed prepaid reservation for the 07/07/15.
This Hotel have three buildings, everyone independent from each others about check-in check out, services, parking, etc.
Two are within walking distance but not easy to switch if you have luggage.
Normally they send to you an email or a telephone call to communicate the right building where you are settled. This time no email, no call. I goes to the building 2 as usual for the last year in my previous stays.
20:30 Parking my car, outside 39 centigrade degree, download my baggages: two trolleys, some shopping bags, suit bag.
Queue at the front desk, no one present at dedicated gold/platinum desk; after several minutes wait, I'm ask to checking in, the agent told me "sorry you must go to building 3".
I say nothing ( my eyes have spoken for me...), goes back to the car, upload my luggage, drove to building 3, download luggage again and reach the front desk.
Again no gold/platinum desk attended, new queue, finally I received a room at 5th floor, I told the agent immediately that I don't like rooms at this floor because they are attics with partially lower ceilings...
(why this information was not set in their systems as I asked in a previous stay?)
She assured my room was not an attic...
I went up to the fifth floor, the room was an attic with lower ceiling.
I returned immediately back to the hall (yes, with trolleys, shopping bags, suit bag) and ask for another room.
They gave me a room at 4th floor, goes upstairs again to find the aircon was turned off: temperature inside the room 31 centigrade degrees, as stated in the aircon on/off switch.
After another hour of pathetic attempts of the maintenance, at 23:00 I decide, with 30° inside the room, to leave the hotel and goes to another starwood property.
Last annoyance: at check out I ask the refund of my prepaid room rate, I need to repeat the same exact sentence three times, every time raising the tone of voice, to obtain the refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MikeC27 Very Disappointing
I arrived very late at this hotel via taxi. Taxi took me to the wrong building - apparently there are 3 so had to take a shuttle to get to the right building. I was up graded to an executive room. I guess that means you get a small, worn out couch. The room was very hot. The A/C was very weak. No water in the room. I looked for an ironing board and iron. Found none and called to have one brought up. That was not possible. I was told I would have to come downstairs to a small room next to reception to find an ironing board. When asked why, I was told for security reasons. I've stated Sheraton's all over the world and I've never heard this before. Completely ridiculous. That was not possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Leif62 This service level on this hotel can be better
Stayed on long-weekend stay with combined relax and golf.
The breakfast service for the Saturday-Sunday was below my Sheraton expectations and definately below the service level 4 years ago. When the counters ran out of food it took long time before they were refilled and we were sitting without the food of choice. Monday and Tuesday service was better.
I booked a taxi through the front desk for 6 person from the hotel to the Vatican museums. The taxi was 20 minutes late and just barely (we had to run) made the ride for us to be on time to our pre booked guide. Moreover, the driver was both arrogant and rude. I made this remark at the hotel and hope they will use another company for pre booked taxis.
