The hotel is what we have come to expect from Hampton Inn - it was clean, quiet and had a nice breakfast. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful - even finding a Chinese restaurant for a guest (who eats Chinese food instead of fresh seafood in Venice?).
The other traveler who mentioned "the noisiest icemaker" must have stayed near our room. The sound, thankfully, was totally muffled by the room door. Close to downtown Venice which is really nice. Who knew there was a military school housed here?
