"Kerry stays at the iconic Baglioni [hotel] because it's directly across the road from the U.S. Embassy, and he has an army to protect him with machine guns and soldiers at the ready," a source tells   Radar Online, explaining that West "wants a similar set-up, as he's become increasingly paranoid about traveling with this wife and child. Rome's a dangerous place. [West] wants top-level security in the rooftop suite, with 360-degree views and [room] for security [on] the entire floor below." Seems eminently reasonable.
