I haven't stayed at this property, but my sis and brother-in-law did on our last trip.  Here's what I can recall about their stay.  They were booked in to the Rome Central Park Courtyard on points, and when they arrived there (after 9pm and too late to do anything about it that first night), my brother found it not to his liking, according to his preferences and what his expectations were for this particular Roman vacation (looking for an experience with a bit more luxury/refinement and closer to the heart of the city).  On short notice and during the peak travel season, the front desk/concierge team at the Boscolo, in concert with Marriott reservations managed to get them a room for 3 nights on points with virtually no notice.  Additionally, it appears that the majority of the rooms at the Boscolo are rather small, but they were assigned a corner room that was very spacious.  In looking at a floor plan layout, it was indeed one of the largest rooms in the hotel, and most are small, so I can't say how easy it would be to get one of the bigger ones.  The decor was modern, really nothing like the Grand Flora, but when I walked through it and visited their room, I thought it was very nice.  Again, different, but nice.  I believe I would've been fine staying there.  The Concierge was fabulous, and they received all kinds of really great info in terms of where to dine.  My brother-in-law was however, very unimpressed with the breakfast, and told them such (he's a former restauranteur, having owned and started a number of restaurants in Australia,) and he definitely knows food.  Other than the breakfast, they were quite happy with their stay.  Here are some photos that I took.
