Ryder Cup 2023: Hilton built a hotel room above Marco Simone’s 10th green and it looks absolutely incredible

September 29, 2023

There’s no shortage of scenic stays in Rome. Ancient landmarks dot the cityscape and beyond them rolling Italian vineyards as far as the eye can see. It’s a singularly beautiful corner of the planet, and Marco Simone Golf & Country Club just so happens to call it home. Of all the unique rooms and unforgettable suites in the Eternal City, however, the most incredible is actually just a Hilton.

For the 2023 Ryder Cup, the hotel chain has created a one-of-a-kind experience, constructing a luxurious suite right above the Marco Simone’s 10th green. You have to see it to believe it, so go ahead and feast your eyes on this ...

If you’re trying to catch a little afternoon nap, things might get a bit noisy, but otherwise the suite is loaded with amenities, from complimentary champagne to mini Ryder Cup replicas to a balcony offering uninterrupted views of the action.

The suite package—including Saturday night in the room, two nights in a nearby Hilton and Ryder Cup tickets for Saturday and Sunday—was auctioned off to Hilton Honors members, with the winning bid coming in at 528,000 points. That equates to roughly $3,000 USD. That’s not chump change, but it seems like a steal to us.
