We arrived too early to check in but the front desk staff did our paperwork, was very informative and professional and asked us to store our bags. She provided us with a map of the area and asked us to come back a little later. After we did get into our room we were very happy with the size of... More

I loved this hotel! The staff are fantastic. Two days before our arrival (Friday of a long weekend) I called to see if they might be able to find a wheelchair for us. Martin called every rental outlet he could find and while the result was negative I truly appreciated the fact that he tried so hard and called me... More

Location was awesome.....right downtown and within walking distance to pretty much everything. The front desk staff (2 gentleman, in particular) were very helpful and friendly.....gave us great restaurant... More

Stayed for 4 nights and would definitely recommend it. Our room was average in size but had a large bathroom (king superior). It was well located and easy walking distance to restaurants and sites. Parking was 2 blocks away but was free. The restaurant was terrific and offered coupons towards a hot breakfast ($3 off) and gave an incentive of... More

Nice, modern hotel with friendly hotel staff and great restaurant. The downtown location brings a lot of city noise. Double pane windows and heavier curtains would help but they did provide ear plugs which I used. I liked the hotel and would stay there again.

Front staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the city. Food at cafe and tapas bar was fantastic and relatively inexpensive. Wait staff were efficient and bar staff were friendly and fun. Overall, a very good experience.

Clean rooms, modern decor, but very small. The shower was the smallest ive ever been in and I'm only 5'3". Also to our surprise there was no parking at the hotel, it had recently changed and we were not informed. The parking was in the next block, but seemed a littke questionable. The area although convenient to downtown and easy... More

This hotel is a refined boutique hotel in a perfect setting. We parked our car and walked for 2 days. Located in a heritage building, it has been lovingly restored with a youthful flair. It is not an over the top luxury hotel, but you could find it in NYC just off Central Park. The Veneto is a destination stop... More

Great cafe and lounge but the room was small and felt a little claustrophobic. I think that suites are available and would opt for that in the future. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the legislature and museum but some great shops nearby. Try johns place a few steps away for brunch.
