My husband and I spent four nights at the Seven one Seven. We had been traveling for the week prior to our stay there and arrived there at 6:30pm unsure of what to expect. We were greeted by Jerko, one of the several wonderfully welcoming staff we encountered there. Jerko checked us in and then asked if we'd like a bottle of wine and "snacks."
We climbed the stairs up to the 3rd floor--we were staying in the Picasso Suite which overlooks a canal. The room was gorgeous and comfortable--a hotel room with charm, personality and every creature comfort you could ask for. We loved it.
One of my least favorite things about high end hotels is that they so often nickel and dime you for every little thing. Want a bottle of water? That's five bucks? Want a bottle of wine? That's forty bucks. At the Seven one Seven, however, all food and drink is included in your room rate. Wine, cheese, olives, beer, bottled water, Diet Coke--it's all included. We loved that aspect of the Seven one Seven. Each day we would wake, go downstairs for a very good breakfast (including warm chocolate croissants!), head out, explore the city for most of the day, come home, have a bottle of wine and snacks sent up, spend a couple of hours relaxing (the internet is free as well) and then head back out. When we came home at night, we'd be greeted by a charming staff person all of whom unfailingly asked us if there was anything we needed.
Our room on the canal was louder at night than I'd have liked although the Seven one Seven is in a relatively sedate part of town. The hotel does the best they can with heavy windows and interior and exterior shutters, but, if you are a light sleeper, I'd ask for an interior room. On the other hand, we loved the view from our suite.
We stayed at two other high end hotels on our trip and, of the three establishments, this was by far our favorite.
