A hop, skip and a jump outside Rome's centre, with unparalleled views over the city, the Rome Cavalieri is where in-the-know holidaymakers looking for something grand and luxurious ensconce themselves on their city stopovers.
Bedding down: Regular rooms are either 'Deluxe', which feature huge beds, individual terraces, state-of-the-art TVs and Crabtree & Evelyn goodies in the bathrooms, or 'Imperial', with all the above, plus a few nice extras like dedicated check-in and free access to a drinks and snacks lounge, plus the spa and fitness areas. There is also a range of impressive sounding suites, although our lack of black Amex means we're unlikely to see the inside of any of these in this lifetime.
Feed me: Widely acknowledged as Rome, if not Italy's best restaurant, the top-floor La Pergola restaurant, with its three Michelin stars, is a destination in its own right. Like the suites on the floor below it, however, we're still saving up for that treat. In the meantime, there's also the poolside eatery, L'Uliveto, or take a five-minute walk down the road and you'll also discover the cheap and cheerful, but brilliant, family run Vespri Siciliani (Piazzale delle Medaglie d'Oro 22).
Easily bored: You're in Rome and you're bored? Sorry, not sure we can help you.
Point me in the right direction: Rome Cavalieri, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Via Alberto Cadlolo 101, 00136 Rome, Italy (Tel: 39 06 3509 1; Web: www.romecavalieri.com).
