We purchased a Groupon for Hotel Rialto many months ago. After we booked our reservation, they contacted us to let us know about the renovations and that we would have to reschedule our trip. We already had pet-sitting lined up and were pretty disappointed. Boy, did they turn a negative into a positive. We made a new reservation once the renovations were complete, booked a ferry trip and lined up the pet-sitter again. We're here now and we've had the most wonderful trip. At every point from check-in through our dinner tonight at Veneto Tapa Lounge, we have been nothing but impressed. The staff is all smiles and so eager to help. Our room is fantastic, roomy, modern, bright, and comfortable. There was even a vase of fresh flowers waiting for us when we arrived. I had read about the street noise before we came, so I wasn't surprised by it. It's just like staying in a hotel in any big city - the location is fantastic, and that's going to go hand-in-hand with some noise at night.
Service? Outstanding. Room? Comfy cozy. Location? Couldn't be better. Ammenities? Wish there was a gym on-site, but they do allow access to a gym nearby. The weather was so nice, we ended up exercising outside instead. Very content with the little breakfast cafe/coffee bar. Also, we were a little bummed to see scaffolding outside our big, beautiful windows on the 4th floor as we thought the renovations were complete. But, it wasn't that big of a deal. Overall, we were quite happy and will definitely stay here again.
