We stayed here for one night per-cruise last month. We loved our room which had a view of the Grand Canal. The only thing that would have made it better is if it had a balcony that we could have sat out on and people watched while enjoying a glass of wine. The location is perfect for those that like to walk and explore on their own. Getting from the airport via bus only required a short walk over 2 small bridges and walking to the people mover was quite easy as well. It's about a 30 minute walk to San Marco Square as well. The staff was very knowledgable and gave us great directions and recommendations. Don't miss the breakfast it exceeded our expectations.
