Rome's Michelangelo Hotel...
During V.II Frank Card. Spellman stayed as an honored guest at Rome's posh La Grand Hotel, near to Roma Termini.
Meanwhile, he arranged for the rest of the U.S. Bishops to stay at Rome's Hotel Michelangelo, near to the Vatican. In 1962 this hotel was only a few years old as Rome's newest and finest.
Today any Roman or tourist alike might be heard saying of this same structure: "Wow, I'll bet that big ugly building was built in the 1960s."
