Location, accommodation, atmosphere, great value for money but not saying its cheap.
50 metres from San Marco's Piazza, very comfortable rooms, ours had a balcony which while views weren't fantastic with glimpses of grand canal was great to sit on and look up some of the lanes and at the roofs and domes and just soak up atmosphere. We were on 4th floor directly below the rooftop terrace, also great to have your breakfast on. Note lift only goes to third floor.
Agree with Derek G that there was one reception staff member who tried to sell us his tour each time we walked through reception, smile and get on with it. So close to San Marco's made it central to everything and also close to Grand Canal for taxis, ferrys and gondolas. Fellas, note you are surrounded by Versace, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, to name a few, so tie her arms behind her back and hide the credit cards.
Breakfast was fairly standard hotel food but a pretty room and everybody chatted with those around them and simply turned and introduced themselves as you sat down.
Only issue was I am not dainty with over 6ft (184cm) and 110kg and having a hand held shower when I stood up in the bath standing in the window space above the bath (ceiling sloped down over bath with gable above it in the middle) made it interesting and partner took suitably embarrassing photos :)
