Will be anxious for an answer to a hotel in Rome, as we are doing a
3 day pre cruise stay in Rome...We want a hotel that is close to the
Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps as possible, nice but not too pricey.
Of course we know we will be walking alot.

Ah, shucks. Another one bites the dust. Why didn't you say you were single a couple years ago? ;-o

Seriously, congratulations and best wishes!

As to hotels for a post-cruise stay in the Eternal City, the most seamless option is to book a hotel package through your cruise line. The cruise lines' hotel packages include the transfer from the pier in Civitiavecchia to the respective hotels, and the cruise lines have English-speaking staff at a desk in the hotel to coordinate optional tours of various local attactions with English-speaking guides and to assist with any other needs that you may have.

I have twice stayed at the Crowne Plaza St. Peter's, which is in a residential neighborhood behind Vatican City, and look forward to doing so again. This stately grand lady offers convenient pedestrian access to the neighborhood's outstanding restaurants and shops, which serve locals, and a complementary shuttle to the downtown area for convenient access to the city's metro and major attractions. Some of the cruise lines offer packages at this hotel.

If you book both your hotel package and your flights through your cruise line, the air package will include the transfer from the hotel to the airport. If you are booking your flights separately, either directly or through your travel agent, you will be responsible for your own transportation from the hotel to the airport -- and it takes over an hour by taxi, so it's not cheap. Many of Rome's better hotels, including the Crowne Plaza St. Peter's, do offer complementary shuttles to the airport that arrive there in time for the later (9:00 AM or after) flights back to the States. If you are booking your flights separately, book the latest flight out of Rome that you can.

If you want to tour the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel or other major attractions, I highly recommend booking a local tour. The Vatican Museum typically has a cue that extends half way around a city block, three or four wide, for general admission, but the tour groups have reserved group admission times so they bypass the tour and go right in via the group entrance, which is next to the general entrance, when they arrive. If the cruise line's staff at your hotel don't offer a tour of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel, or if you arrange your hotel independently, the concierge at the hotel will gladly arrange a tour with an English-speaking guide for you.

Norm.

We have also just booked at the Hotel Sonya for 2 pre days and 1 post. Liked the reviews and if you pay in cash they give you a discount.

Thank you but I meant the Hotel Continentale in Rome. I'm not sure if they are the same company?

Hopefully this will be a good experience...

No,I doubt it because the ones in Barcelona are family owned and the mother works at both hotels..

Just to add to the list.

We stayed at the Hotel Artemide Roma - it is relatively close to Termini Station if the train plays into your plans. It was an easy walk to Trevi and a straight shot to the top of the Spanish Steps. Plus it was an easy downhill to the northern end of the forum, almost spilling out at the Alter of the Nation.

We booked directly with the hotel for about 240 Euros a night for a classic room that included free breakfast, wi-fi and mini-bar. The hotel has a beautiful terrace with distant views of the dome of St. Peter's.
