Flying into a city and having your bag not make your flight is an utterly terrifying experience. However, flying Delta made the process rather streamlined. I am truly grateful for utilizing an AirTag in my bag and their baggage tracking system. But still, when you have to let go of what you can’t control at the airport, it’s time to seek refuge at your hotel.
After taking the Leonardo Express from the airport to the nearest train station, I easily took a taxi to The Hoxton Rome at Largo Benedetto Marcello 220.
Once I arrived, check in was a breeze. My room was exactly the way I wanted it to be: Third floor, overlooking something beautiful (in this case, part of the Borghese Gardens) and easily accessible by the elevator.
Typical of Hoxtons, the room had a vibe that was as beautiful as the neighborhood. The vibrant detail were tastefully done. However, the sink fixtures were starting to show wear.
As the Statue of Liberty shows, brass does not age well and turns green.
I reserved a terrance room and was pleased by its cute look. There is truly something special about drinking an Aperol Spritz while overlooking a quiet Roman street.
Later during my stay, I enjoyed relaxing in the spacious downstairs lounge while a DJ played curated house music.
